Had to change my left speaker due to a dammage in the membrane . I went with the marine grade from Polk audio db5252 5"1/4 - 100W, well built and the sound is very clean and enough powerful, and the price is very low.

Yes I have an amp, from Rockford fosgate TM400x2ad. My speakers are 5 1/4 so they can handle 100w, all the 4inch handle 50w so you have to adjust very carefully the output of the amp.

Not at all, you need a dremel and some patience. But what a difference in sound.
