Blown speakers

I bought a '00 740 about 2 months ago. I love the car but both of my rear speakers have blown out. Is there an diy solution to just replacing the two? I don't want to go to the dealer just to have them charge me $600 for something this simple. And best buy told me $1500 because they have to "gut out my audio system". What speakers should I buy (btw im a young black guy so I need some that can handle the bass lol) and is there a diy video or written instructions anywhere so I wont screw my car up.

Actually the rear speakers on your car are excellant they just get dried out and dirty so once their gone its best to follow the other guys advice and get them at a junkyard or ebay
