The front speakers are 16cm and you will need spacers. the rear are 13cm I think,
If you replace the front components, you may find you don't need to touch the rears...

Removing the door cards:
Been a while since I've done this, but from what I recall...

there are three screws at the base of the door ( under the pocket ) and another behind the small speaker, mirror switch, and the window switch.
(Wind the window down before you unplug them all.)
Once these are out, remove the screw in the handle ( under a rubber bung ) and then push the handle out with your finger ( put your finger into the window switch hole to do this, you'll see what I mean )

With the window down, the door card should just lift out and if you're lucky you can unsnap the white panel clips without breaking them.

Unhook the door opening cable and the door card should be free.

Hope this helps.
