Well since you're new, I'll jump in and give a possible reason why people aren't jumping all over this.

Problem 1) We don't know what you're looking for in terms of sound, and what type of music you listen to. (Do you want big bass, wide imaging, clear mids, that type of stuff)

Problem 2) Saying you have a box, and want to put speakers in it is like saying you have a car and want to replace the engine. Some details about the box please. (What are the inside dimensions of the box?) Do you want to keep the same crossover? (You REALLY don't want to, it makes the job even more challenging)

Problem 3) You don't give much information as to the original manufacturer of the speakers. Are they generic "white van" speakers? Were they a name brand?

Problem 4) You don't give any idea of a price range. This is about as important as problem 2.

Personally, I'd say junk the speakers and build it yourself. It won't cost much more to build a new box and you'll end up with a better sounding system that is more tailored to what you want to hear. (That's also why most people have avoided answering your questions, they'll all agree with me on this point as well)

Oh, and one final thing, have patience and don't get snippy.

Also, giving recommendations on suppliers, would be nice to know were you are located.

what size woofer I assume 8"?
close to TV hence you need shielded drivers, few good shielded drivers I would recomend a Vifa or Peerless if they fit your price range. But they only make 6" shielded drivers.

tweeter look like cone tweeters (I assume 2"). You can try the 2" "full rnage drivers 300-15k) recomended eariler on another thread. I am too senile to remember details.

If Vifa and Peerless are too expensive Parts Express has some no name drivers that might work. try this...
