Easy upgrade. Any car speakers will work. I went to a bigger size so had to cut the hole bigger. Well worth it and only spent $35.

Take your ceiling speakers down and vacuum the styrofoam and saw dust
out of the backs of them. Then put a donut of pillow stuffing (fiberfill) or fiberglass
around the hole to keep any more debris from migrating into the speakers.
Replace and be amazed at the difference!!

i did the above the cab speakers, relaced them with sony speakers from walmart recommended by others. it worked, but what really madecthe difference was installing fiberglass insulation in open gaps, along with simple gorilla tape as a means of tightening the gaps and seems. it did make a difference for sure. putting backing in the ceiling with give the same effect. you gotta be careful to not put too much in based on the sound it emits.

Our previous RockWood UltraLite had 2 speakers in the bottom of the
cabinet over the head of our bed. These cabinets have "false bottoms" to
allow for speakers and wires. The speakers sounded horrible and my son said
they were "blown". Not so. I removed them and vacuumed out a hand full
of sawdust and then stuffed the area around them full of fiberglass. The thin bottoms of the cabinet were vibrating and making the wires laying in there
dance. After cleaning and stuffing the wires and remaining debris can't move and the speakers sounded pretty good. It's a shame you have to do this
but it's a 10 min job and made a huge improvement. That Rockwood had a bass
speaker under one of the dinette seats and the sound system sounded pretty good.

Our current rig has 6 little ceiling speakers and I had to remove and vacuum all of them.
All were full of styrofoam. Much better but lacking bass so I may just upgrade
a couple of them to some 6 by 9s from CrutchField one day!
