    I bought some small JBL units from Crutchfield. Any 4" speaker will work, but the trick is to get some foam baffles to cram behind them during installation. It'll push more sound out the front.

    Thanks for the recommendations. Appreciate the help. Got some weather resistant ones from marine supply house and will try them.

    I was able to fit 5" in place of the stock 4". I put a screw in one of the corner holes and two others simply clamped on the outside of the frame with washers under the screw heads. I also installed foam liners from crutchfield behind the waterproof marine speakers. Really good sound. Not great, but much better than the originals.
