Sometimes it's the door trim rattling, sometimes it's the speakers torn. Do you have the Bose system?
Just use the adapters, any decent 6.5 will fit. You need an adapter anyway to space it out the inch or so like the factory speaker.the stock speakers are very low rated only 20W ( probably RMS) and made of plastic with a tiny magnet. Not exactly made for loudness or quality sound. Buy yourself a new set on component speakers, its an easy job and will make a lot of difference. Focal get get reviews here and for £125 or more you'll do alright. Focal are good because they have multiple mounting holes and the stock speakers only have 3 whereas most speakers with have 4. The focal are easier to fit because of this. Other makes will need some adapter rings to allow for the 4 holes.
Car speakers are usually designed to need the airspace of the door, be careful using these as you are likely to actually hurt SQ. They are certainly no substitute for liberal amounts of deadener on the door skins.Water will always manage to get between the rubbers and the window glass so any water that does make its way in is supposed to drain through small holes at the bottom of the door. Get down low and take a look. It would be worth cleaning these out to make sure they havent become clogged with dirt over the years. When I replaced my speakers recently I also fitted these baffles behind them. Not only will they protect your nice new speakers from getting wet they are supposed to improve the sound quality.

Yeah Sorry I forgot to add that when using these baffles you should cut the back open and some of the bottom to allow the speaker to breathe as such. They end up looking like the ones Hakkon has put the link to.Car speakers are usually designed to need the airspace of the door, be careful using these as you are likely to actually hurt SQ. They are certainly no substitute for liberal amounts of deadener on the door skins.
They tend to be used as a band aid for poorly sealed doors or poor installations. The G front doors however are excellent for audio - well sealed and a solid base for the driver (and great tweeter placement). And good quality car audio speaker will perform better with the airspace of the door and these foam cup baffle things will just kill mid bass performance.
But used as an "umbrella" with the bottom half cut away they can be useful. Rigid ones are better though.

Best place for deadening is metal around fhe speaker mount on the whole panel. Next is the inside of the outer door skinThanks for all the advice Im glad to have confirmation on the water in the door.... definitely worried me a little at first!
I think my plan going forward will be a set of pioneers for all 4 doors, an umbrella for the speakers to protect from the water (as you rightly point out haakon, rain in sunny England is an issue!!), and then a layer of sound deadening over the plastic inner door skin!
I think i'll also be putting a layer of sound deadening in the boot and wheel arches - but that'll be for a separate project!
Once again, thanks for all your help. If I remember, i'll try take some photos when I get around to doing it!
