    Where's The Mac when you need him :)

    Yes people have & usually swapped amp out aswell, but iirc if doing just speakers, you need to make sure they're 2 ohm not 4.

    standard speakers are 2 ohm impedance but aftermarket ones are usually closer to 4 ohms
    aftermarket brands wise i would look at

    hertz , focal , rainbow , jl audio

    you may have to check the depth of the standard speakers to make sure whichever new ones you intedn to fit will be o.k depth wise and not interfere with the window mechanism

    std speaker sizes for fronts are 5.25 inch ... 5.1/4"
    maximum depth is either 52mm or 54mm from memory
