there would be a button on the dash in which you could turn on the h/k speakers

Usually the Speakers up front have a HK logo on them as well as the HiFi button near the heated seats!

The speakers suck and blew shortly after my new head unit install.

Anyone know what are a good set of speakers which are also a direct fit in terms of size and ohm requirements?

I would go with Eclipes for the quality .. I dont think it would be a direct fit thou.

Nope, but the HK systems used better quality speaker wire.

Thanks for the responces guys. I think i'm going to wait for something to blow before i start fixing it, then probably go aftermarket.
