The speakers are 4 inches. But two-way speakers like the Polk DB401 that gets used by GL1500 owners are too thick to fit into the GL1200 housing. So an automotive 4 inch speaker that is not a two-way would fit. I would probably try to use a marine speaker, that is intended to be outside in moisture, like this one:
