OBS Reg Cab Speakers

Looking to upgrade my speakers I'm my 1996 F-350 XL Regular Cab OBS. From what I gathered there are 6-1/2 door speakers (2) and 5x7 side mounted cab speakers behind the bench seat (2). Are there 4 total speakers our are there tweeters somewhere as well? Would like to know sizes, quantity, and if possible wiring schematic before making a purchase. I am looking to setup a nic, quality system where the speakers are amped maybe a shallow mount sub as well. Any help and advice would be appreciated!

You are correct, 2 front 6.5s and 2 rear 5x7s.
4 total speakers, from factory there are no external tweeters.

I have these in my truck and LOVE them:
Rear: Focal ISS 570 5X7" 2 way Component Speakers
Front: Focal Access 165A1 SG 6.75" Component Speakers (These required slight trimming of the speaker opening in the door because they are 6.75" instead of 6.5")

I have a set of Infinity coaxial speakers in my front doors (only ran about $60) running off off my 1000w Sony amp with a 10" Xplode sub, and a JVC deck with JVC speakers in the rear. It was pretty cheap to put together, but sounds great! Although I think I blew out the speakers in the rear lol.

I want to get Infinity Kappas, had them before and they are insanely loud. Have to be amped though, which space is going to limit me in a regular cab. Being 6'-1" my seat has to be all the way back.

That is true... I'm 5'10 and have an extended cab so space wasn't a big issue. I don't know how much space you have under your seat, but I mounted my amp to the underside of my back seat to keep it out of the way.
