Nigel, the speakers have the same power requirements so if the mounting holes match up it will be an easy job if not you might have to tinker a bit. I do know that the door speakers are an easy swap once you get door panels off-- not so sure of mount-up on dash speakers though. Hope this helps
Actually the door speakers( less than 50W) do not need high wattage speakers as they are mainly powered from the head unit. Unless you are powering with a power amp a speaker of 300 watts is not required. But if the mountings are correct , the impedance of 4 ohms is correct, then it will fit OK and work. The only main issue will be the sensitivity issue of the speakers to work with a low output.
I have considered that a highly sensitive speaker( small voltage response) will sound great like an expensive power amplifier and high wattage speakers. Jensen had some good ranges in the 80's but now we have hard suspensions with poor response.
So my final suggestion is if powered from your head unit test it , there is no damage but if there is a response problem if you are a soft listener. Other wise there is nothing to worry on as the amp will handle except your listening pleasure.
So test to decide. Credit me if this info is helpful.
Before I post this for you, I just wanted to let you know that you can buy an aftermarket harness that plugs right into your existing harness. Then it allows you to hook up to the wires without cutting your factory wires. They might even have it at Wal-Mart for less than $15. Anyway here are the specs. Don't forget to vote if this helped you out:

I'm clueless which wire are which.
In the front door, that's a factory 6x9 speaker. There are some aftermarket 6x9s that will fit. In the rear deck, they use a speaker similar to a 6 1/2 but the bolt pattern doesn't match up, so there are a number of 6 1/2 and 6 3/4 sized speakers that will fit, but you'll have to redrill the mounting screw holes.

You have to cut out a large enough hole in your door to fit the speakers. But you have to keep in mind if your factory speaker came with a grill your new speaker will have to have one too. It will make it look better. As far as fit, you have to make sure the depth of the speakers are compatible with the window mechanism, or else you will have real problems when you go to roll down your window. Measure the depth of the stock speakers, and when they are removed, roll down your window to see if your new speaker will catch on anything. It may have the correct depth, but the diameter of the new speaker magnet/cage may be too large. If it fits, you are in luck. Get a handy saw/sheet metal cutters and make your hole big enough to fit. If you do not have enough room you will have to have a spacer added where your speakers will mount. A spacer on the outside of the door with the speakers mounted on top of it will work. Wood would be the cheapest route, using a solid piece and painted to match your color scheme. If you use the spacer, you may not have to cut on your door. If you want to get fancy, you can cover the wood in fiberglass cloth and resin to make some nice custom speaker mounts.

I just replaced mine on my 2002 Diamante LS yesterday. It really isn't that difficult. To get to the front door speaker you will need to remove the door trim panel. This is done by pulling out on the bottom part of the panel. I used a flathead screwdriver to help with the separation. Just be careful not to scratch anything.
There are 4 or 5 clips that lock the panel on to the door frame. After you have pulled the clips out you will want to lift up on the separated panel as it hangs on a rail adjacent to the window. Pull the panel out far enough to reach behind and disconnect the various wiring clips. They have quick disconnect fittings and come out easily. You will also need to disconnect the door interior light by rotating the base about a half turn to get it out of the removable panel.
Once you have removed the door panel you will have full access to the speaker frame mounting. It has a removable plastic frame that you screw the new speakers in to. It attaches to the door frame with 5 or 6 Phillips type screws. I found it easier to remove the mount and get it ready to accept my new speakers. I just srewed it back on before actually attaching the speakers.
While the dealer spec for door speakers on a Diamante is a 6 3/4" speaker, a 6 1/2" will work just fine if you have a drill to pre-drill new screw holes. Just line the new speaker up on the speaker mount, mark where the new holes should be and then go ahead and drill them. Make sure the drill bit isn't bigger the the screw. It is a machine type of a thread and is easy to self thread with a regular phillips screwdriver.
After you have the speaker mount ready to accept your new speaker you can go back to your car, screw the mount back on to the door frame. Next attach the two speaker wires to the back of the new speaker. White goes to the positive post. (You might need to change the fitting type to match the car wiring and the new speaker) You can get some quick connect friction fittings and put one on the end of each wire that attaches to the speaker. Walmart, Autozone, Radio Shack all have these as they are readily available.
With the speakers in place, just reverse you installation of the door panel. I found it was easier to roll the window down so I could hang the panel back on the channel. Line up the clips and the bottom of the door, push in and you will feel and hear them engage. Once you are sure they are lined up correctly, go ahead and give it a good push where each clip attaches to make sure its on tight.
