My experience with fitting aftermarket speakers is that it is a tedious but not difficult job. Well worth the effort.

You may need spacers for clearance behind the speaker and you might then have to make some minor modifications to the door trim so it fits without contacting the speaker.

If I was to do this all over again, I would bypass SCA and Auto Barn and go straight to my local-ish car audio specialist. They will sell you speakers that will meet your expectations and should give you very helpful advice about fitting.

My biggest tip though is take your own music to the store and listen to it with the speakers you intend to buy. You can't really make an informed decision by listening to an FM radio station in a shop.

Let us know how you go.

Life is too short not to have good sound in your car!
Thanks for the advice, the thing is i don't have any local-ish car audio specialists, closest one is about a 40 minute drive away.

I am keen to do it myself, from what i can see, there is quite a bit of space behind the speaker grill so i could fit a small spacer. I am just not sure if it uses the standard 4 bolt or the stupid 3 bolt design.
