For the battery, as long as the dimensions fit and the CCA are enough you will be good. I am currently running an Optima Yellow Top.

For the speaker question I am not sure excatly what you are asking. You are asking if the dash speakers will work if you dont ahve them??? If they are not there they will not work. If they are there they should work even if the door speakers are blown unless there is a wiring problem.

I upgraded my stereo and replaced all my monsoon speakers and it sounds aswome.

You need a group 48 battery, the 49(TDI) is a little bigger and will fit with a slight mod to the battery cover.

You can also use an optima.

You can find a GP48 at Costco or walmart for around $40. It will take around an hour for you to put it in if you haven't done it before.
