Cerwin Vega Foam degradation - repair or replace?

I have some CW speakers for use in my garage/shop and the foam on one driver is falling apart. I noticed on Ebay that you can buy foam repair kits for the drivers. Anyone try this? Is it better to just replace the 8" drivers? They are probably 20 years old anyway. If so, where can I get JUST the drivers? Auto stereo shop?

Thanks

A refoam is advised. Usually the other parts of the driver will last much longer than the surround foam and they will be like new once it is replaced. If you are unfamiliar with doing a refoam job there are many online resources that can walk you through it or there are services you can send your driver to for a refoam. GeoAli in Nashville, TN sells the refoam kits or will refoam them for you. Great refoam kits and they also do an expert job of a refoam should you decide to go that route.
