I recently replaced the speakers on my 79 B and had a few problems.  First of 
all I
believe the size is 4 or 4.5 inches.  The problem came with finding a full-range
speaker that would fit in the door.  It's not a question of how much space 
there is
between the door panel and the door, but rather between the door panel and the
window mechanism, which is about 2 inches.  There are plenty of mid-range 
that would work, but they won't give you as good a sound.  The trick is in the
grill.  Find a grill that sits out a bit from the door panel and gives you extra
room to put in a thicker speaker with a bit larger magnet.
    I also had to put new connections on the wires in the door, but thats easy
enough to do.  Although I tried, I could not find a way to keep the original 
in the door, but if you do please tell me.
