Default Help me! Dash speakers..

I just bought an '03 limited cruiser, and I love absolutely everything about my new baby. However, the left dash speaker is blown and drives me nuts! I was just wondering if I should just go to a dealership, or look for them online? I just don't know where to start!! Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks!

You could do dealer parts but you also have the option of aftermarket too. Just don't cut up the wires, I know you can find a converter type thing to plug into the end of an aftermarket speaker to directly plug and aply with the stock wires if that makes sense. I did it w/ my grand am a while ago...

WIth some grinding of the plastic you can easily fit 3.5" in the dash.

Note that the speaker system is a "component" set with the woofers in the door and the tweeters in the dash. There is no separate channel for the dash speakers, a simple 1st order filter keeps the bass out of the tweeters (it's a capacitor).

So if you want to put much better speakers in the dash - you need to either rewire it and split off the channel, or just put a tweeter in with the same capacitor.

The Polk db351 come with bass filters in the box.
