Parts for 8030A

I'm in the US and am trying to aquire a replacment woofer for a 8030A. I contacted the rep in the US and was told that these speakers needed to be sent back to the manufactuer to be repaired. Is this true?

For backgound, the woofer sounds like its blown (it makes a "fuzzy" noise at med.-high volume). I found another thread on this forum that suggested that it might be the magnetic sheild rubbing against the actual speaker instead of the speaker itself, so I took a look at that and found nothing amiss. I would like to buy a replacement woofer and change it out myself, but was not able to get a part number or cost from the rep in the US.

Is there any way you can let me know what speaker I need to buy so I can do this repair myself?

it is true. We use custom woofers which aren't available any where else. You should contact our US rep again and make a service request.
