Question Down to one working speaker, need advice.

Since I bought the car a little over a year ago the speakers have died out. I now have my rear left speaker working and that is it. Looking around I see that a spacer is needed if putting in aftermarket speakers (at least for the front doors, rear I don't know). I also see a ton of speakers (crutchfield, sonicelectronix) available but they're the midrange/tweeter combos. I don't want to have tweeters in my door and pillar if it's going to mess with the sound.

Anyone have recommendations for speakers that will work? I am not looking to put in an amp and don't need anything crazy. Just something equivalent to stock that won't die out so quickly.

Components will almost always be better than coax speakers. You don't want to double up on the tweeters, that will really hurt the sound. You will need adapters to fit new speakers since the OEM speakers are sort of built into their own spacer. They are held in by rivets and need to be drilled out, but it's not a big task. Are you planning on doing the work yourself, or taking it to a shop? If you don't want to add an amp, look at the sensitivity rating of the components you're shopping for, the higher the better. Do you have a budget in mind?

Crutchfield is a great source to figure out what works. Even if you don't buy from them, they can tell you what fits. Previous owner replaced the speakers in my GTI, stock locations and no issues.
