What sort of magnets are in the rear speakers of my 2014 Civic LX Coupe ?

I was initially appalled at the extremely small magnet size. And then, when I tried to test the relative strength of the magnets, I could but barely find any magnetic force there at all!
Can anyone shed some light on this please?
That being said, it is amazing how speaker technology has improved over the years and the quality of sound that comes out of speakers that I would never have considered large enough to produce the sound they do.
Are you thinking of replacements? Dissatisfied with sound quality?
Unless there are rare-earth magnets in these small 5"D speakers (which I doubt due to the cost factor) I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the lack of bass. But still, I am totally shocked at the meager magnetic force I found.
For many years I routinely replaced rear speakers in each new car I bought (probably 10 or 12 times). Rear speakers used to be mounted from underneath and could be easily replaced. Today however, rear speakers require great efforts to replace (especially so in my Civic Coupe) and I don't foresee my doing that.
