Infinity Kappa 62.9i. Just got done installing these in the sound bar of my 2013 Sport S, and they sound fantastic even with the under-powered factory head unit. They are 6.5 inch with the "plus-one" cone, they come with all the brackets, so that will save you money. Power handling is 75 watts RMS and 225 peak. You will need one pair of Metra 72-6514 speaker harnesses, and installation took about an hour, would have been quicker with a second set of hands. And they have an adjustment on the tweeter that will go from +3 db to 0db. Best all around coaxial speakers I have ever heard.

For a 2002 and older sound bar, 6.5" speakers fit fine. Sound pods used 2003-2006 are pretty well limited to 5.25" so far as I know.

Don't worry about how many watts the speaker will handle, that isn't important with a stock head unit that doesn't put out much power anyway. The most important specification is the speaker's Sensitivity rating. Without a high, like 90 dB or higher, Sensitivity rating, the stock head unit won't be able to drive it. Polk's DB line of speakers is one that has a sufficiently high Sensitivity rating that means it will sound good with a lower power amplifier like a stock head unit has.

Speakers with a lower Sensitivity dB rating like down in the 80's will only sound good with a fairly high powered auxilliary amplfier.
