Default Monsoon speakers?

I am parting an 03 with a Monsoon stereo. I am wondering if they are a better speaker than what my 98 has? I used the dash panels from the monsoon car that has the speakers in them and was going to tie them in with the a pilar tweters I have now.
Would it be worth it to swap out the other four?
I put the Monsoon head unit in mine already.

Did you also install the amplifier to go with the radio? The rear monsoon speakers are 2 ohm woofers and the door speakers are 2 ohm subwoofers, and you will need the amp to get the best sound from them.

No I just used the head unit and the original non Monsoon speakers. Are the speakers the same Monsoon and non? Does the amp plug and play into the non Monsoon?

I hope this works
The COMPLETE GUIDE to Factory Audio Systems!

This is a .pdf I put together that has info about the Delphi Monsoon system.

If I had to guess I would think a non monsoon car is wired differently, but you can check for plugs in the left rear quarter near the tail light and see, that is where the amp would be.

I believe all your original speakers are 4 ohm and the Monsoon radio is just a normal 4 channel output like your old radio, without the amp installed.

If you decide not to use the rear speakers, I would be willing to buy them from you as mine quit working a while back.
