I need some advice on a replacement speaker.

I bought a good used RCA surround sound system with a sub that had cracks around the speaker itself. It is an 8" 4 ohm speaker, and I'm trying to replace just the speaker because the cabinet is good. I'm not sure whether to get a home audio or car audio speaker (if there's a difference), what brands are worth buying, how much I can plan on spending, and a good online store. I know next to nothing about speakers, so whatever you would like to teach me would be much appreciated.
Thanks, and God bless!

I hate to say this but that system is very old and and worn and not good quality in the first place, replace with the same size at r.s. buy the cheapest speaker they have. then save save and invest in a good quality 5.1. system steweee
