HK problem - best solution?

I know absolutely nothing about audio so I figured i'd post here before I walk into a shop and get taken advantage of.

I just purchased a 2003 e46 and noticed that atleast 2 of the HK speakers have some crackling (fronts I believe). I assume that this means they need replacement being that most likely they are just getting old.

I'd like to know the best solution for this problem. I'm not a huge audio guy, but if im going to spend the money I might as well do it right. Is there anyway I could just replace the 2 speakers at an audio shop or will I have to replace the entire system? Do some shops have a set price for a entire audio overhaul? I know its not that big of a deal, but crackling speakers in my new car is driving me

BSW seems to have the only quality midrange speaker replacement and the cost isn't too bad. There is some cheaper stuff on ebay. A lot of threads seem to indicate this is the driver that goes out first you will have to determine that yourself by listening closely.

You can purchase them a pair at a time of save $100 and get all speakers for $599. They are supposed to be much better quality.

Looks like a pretty solid package

What is BSW's warentee on the speakers? I see their garentee, what no info on a warantee.

Also I am only seeing the front door tweaters, not the front door speakers, am I looking in the wrong location?
