More likely than not, they are a marine grade two way/coaxial speaker which are readily available. You'll have to match replacements according to the size of your current speakers including impedance. Most are 4 ohm, but not all. You can get a good set for around $100, but if you're an audiophile you can spend as much as $300-$400 for a set.

Remove one of your old speakers and take some measurements.

These are the speakers I replaced my outside ones with.

2015 30 DS and they sound great.

If these don't work for you, Crutchfield has many options / sizes.

Equally important is to match the continuous power rating of your head unit or amp to the speaker rating. Example if my head unit is only rated at 8 watts continuous so it would not make much sense to get 150 watt continuous power rated speakers. They likely would not sound good and have no lower frequencies. Go for something with a lower rating say 30 to 50 watts with a high sensitivity rating in the 90+ db range. Peak power is marketing bull. A speaker rated 75 watts continuous with a 300 watt peak is just lies. Even with subwoofers.
