Blown Speakers right door of my '99' SL500 anyone have any,? or maybe some help??

I have a 1999 SL 500. 69,000 miles Awsome Shape
I am new to this site.
My SL has blown a speaker(s) in the right door.
I would really apreciate some help from the SL owners for that year as I also have many questions about the "Command" system and other things.
I wish to upgrade to bluetooth.
I have bought the Argos Module, along with the D2B adapter cable.
I bought both because when I push the Phone button on my head unit it says "no Phone", and I was told this means my SL either came with a phone that was removed by a previous owner, OR, it just did not have one.
I also do not have any controls on my steering wheel at all, but my radio does have the number pad and like I said the "Phone" button.

Basically I have three questions:

1) Does anyone have good instructions on installing the Argos unit for my model year other than the vague ones found on their (Argos') website? The site starts at the year 2000.

2) Can anyone give me a place to buy the original Bose speakers in my right side door? or does anyone have any for sale?

3) I need to replace the convertable top....does anyone have a good supply house to buy the top at. I have an installer.

Any help would be great, Thanks alot, Jimiz

RE: Bose Speakers

In response to your question about my selling speakers, yes it is I who am selling the speakers in the "for sale" forum, but no they are not blown. As I stated in my post(s) I had a blown speaker in my passenger door. I put the (s) after the word speaker due to the fact that I had not yet got behind the door panel-not to hard- and found out if one or more speakers had been blown. Turns out just one was blown so I got ahold of Pat at Bose and got the entire set of speakers since I was replacing anyway. The Stealer wanted $394.00 per speaker! This is why I have extra speakers and my old ones for sale, Bose sent me the wrong speakers for the rear deck. They actually sent four 6.5" 'ers instead of sending two 65mm speakers for the rear deck. Hmmm, 6.5" in the doors and 65mm in the rear deck?? go figure. Anyway I am selling the perfectly good speakers (with the exception of the 1 6.5" that was in fact blown) for the rest of the car because I just simply replaced all of them while I was doing it. By the way, if anyone would like to know how to remove the rear deck properly PM me. I have the good fortune to live near Dennis Ficken (MB hydraulic repair) and he and I took the whole damn thing apart to replace the rear deck speakers and replace the two main Hydro-seals for the conv. top. *Not an easy job*
So now you know.............Cheers, Jimiz

Sorry man. I meant no harm and certainly didn't mean to accuse you of anything.
