    I went to radio shack and bought a pair.I believe it was around $8.00 each. The fun was removing the dash to replace them.I tried several after market ones that just did not do the job.And some even said they were 2 way only to find it was really just a plain ole speaker with a bit of plastic in front of it.

    I remember some guy selling infinity 3.5" speakers on ebay for only $35. So that's where I would probably go. I'm sure if you search for them you could track them down. Later

    your going to get what you pay for for the most part...
    3.5's up there take some serious heat in that dash...

    If your dashpad is cracked or dried out(show me a blazer dash that isn't one or the other), you may want to have a spare on hand. Not fun to take off, and just as hard to re-install..........

    Another alternative. Don't use the dash speakers. Put some in the bottom of the door or the kick panel, or anywhere else, and put in good quality stuff........just a thought.
