Dunno about really early models but a '93 124 already has a hole in the right place (back of the door pocket under the armrest) of the inner door skin and with a bit of care you don't even need get the door pocket recovered whether using generic speaker grilles or making something nicer for a more professional/invisible instal
Exactly how Nick did mine now I remember. A really good set of mid-range Dynaudio speakers and similar quality tweeters gave quite glorious sound from Becker connected via a Genesis amp and a whole load of crossovers.

I had a set of custom door builds made. I was running 3 way Focal Utopia's off a JL 300/2 amp. I did away with the speakers on the rear shelf, to act as ports for the sub. The sub was a JL 13w7, off a 1000/1 amp. A balanced, loud, clear sounding system.
