Here is a pic of the Factory midrange speaker, which as I said, is the same speaker whether DSP or Hifi, on the E46 as well - I think it needs to be around 2" or around 65mm overall diameter to fit into the factory "grille" which is clipped into the rear door panel -

EDIT: Now that I'm looking at it, the OEM connection does NOT have a capacitor in line on the rear door midrange, you would know better if putting an additional tweeter set in that location would be good or bad -

rear mid range does not need capacitor on speaker since this frequency band is handled through the systems amplifier. I would stick to mid-range driver for the rears.
