All 4 of my speakers are blown on account of being 40 years old and dryrotted. Trying to find replacements but unsure of wattage/ompedence?

Anything will work with an stock radio as they orignals are not the greatest on performance. Since you have 10x4's in the back you'll be better off with aftermarket. I've used Kenwoods with stock radios.

The rears can be converted to 6 x 9's for a far better sound by either using adapters or cutting a couple notches behind the rear seat just below the rear deck they are maybe 1" x 6" .depending on the speaker.

Get with your local stereo shop. Easy upgrade to awesome sound with little money with a factory radio

I'm pretty sure the factory specks are notebook paper smeared with low grade dog food over a #2 pencil for a voice coil.

Specs: Crappy 40 year old GM delco Speakers
If you're not super into car stereos, pioneer 4x10s (rear) and 3.5 inch (front) will sound just fine. Under 100 bucks from amazon.

Factory original car speakers don't have to be 40 years old to be crappy. They come that way from factory. An easy inexpensive upgrade that pays big dividends. Keep the original radio and upgrade the speakers
