Greg's advice is correct (I have said those words
myself a number of times on this and other lists), but
I believe you were talking about the Kick-Panel
speakers Don sells.  

The answer is yes, you can use Don's kick panel to
replace the front speakers.  However, I'd suggest you
use both.  Having the high-frequencies bounce off the
windshield helps with the imaging of the audio.  Some
of the better speakers are "separates", where you can
mount the tweeter in the dash and the mid-bass speaker
in the kick panel.

Another bit of advice is to NOT use the stock wire
harness for the speakers.  The stock system used a
"common ground" system, where most modern systems use
a "floating ground".
