A set of splits comes with the door speakers, the tweeters, and a crossover to split the frequencies between the two.

How much do you want to spend?

every pesron has different taste in music and sound reproduction, so "what speaker" is a very broad question, with a lot of answers.

As the two fella's above have said, you want a 2 way speaker with seperate tweeter and individual crossover. This allows the tweeter to be mounted in the dash and the woofer in the door. The door pod will accept a 6" speaker (or 6.5 with a little modification) and a 1" tweeter in the dash.
The rear door is a 6"/6.5" speaker, but has not allocated spot for a seperate tweeter. In this case you are looking for a coaxial (tweeter mounted on woofer as one unit).

Now you have the configurations and sizes worked out, the next factor is price, brand and quality. Generally, most well known brands like Pioneer, JVC and Clarion are good for OEM replacement, stuff like Alpine, Polk etc. are more designed for competitions and more involved setups. Your best bet is to head down to your local car audio retailer, listen to a few different speakers (take some music you prefer in with you) and let your ears and wallet make the decision.
