Busted Woofer

I got a pair of Marantz towers. I don't know the model number.
They are about 10/15 years old. They were about 2000 bucks together. They have 12'' woofers. Now one of the woofers just
busted the other night and it is begining the tear all the way around. The other one busted a tweeter but i cant even tell its busted. should I just replace the speaker? or should I get a new woofer for it? Where the hell do I find a twelve inch woofer for a 15 year old Marantz? they are awesome speakers and I don't wanna get rid of em.

I bought a re-edging kit to fix some torn/worn woofers last year from here: http://www.speakerrepair.com/

Worked great & only cost $30

or, failing that, you could find a replacement driver(s) for the speakers.
Two sites that I've bought components from:

i would think about contacting marantz for a replacement woofer, seeing that you spent 2Gs on the pair you might want to spend a couple of extra bucks to replace the speaker correctly.
