OUCH My Dynaudio's have crashed....

After years of building and tweaking my system to my own sonic orgasmatron, my speakers have gone kablooey. The Dynaudio 2.8's are perfect for my room size, my and my wife's ears, and a beautiful match for all my gear. It seems the crossovers or the voice coils got damaged in a series of accidental out of sequence turning off/on of my tube pre and ss amp....dc voltage can do some serious damage.

My system is pretty dialed in to our liking at this point, so I am send them in to Dynaudio USA for a once over and repair estimate, but my fear is peaking the expense of their repair will be way beyond their worth....What should I think of replacing them with?!

My system is detailed here on a-gon:

My room is an untreated 14x16 ft. space with 9 foot ceilings in a turn of the century (last century!) victorian. I listen to alernative rock and alt country, jazz, acoustic, classic rock, reggae, etc. no metal, electronica, classical. (Just saw Neko Case at the Egg in Albany and am convinced she was abducted by aliens and infused with a voice to hypnotize earthlings... but i digress...)

The speakers need to be comfortable pretty close to the back wall...2 feet or so. The Dynaudio 2.8's are a closed box passive woofer system....pretty nice for that application..

Maybe some Special 25's and a sub? I love the sound and look of Sonus, but I fear they're not so great match with my gear...and they need to be out in the room. Harbeth? Man oh man. Any suggestions are appreciated. And, any place in the NY/CT/MA area to listen to suggestion would also be great. About 5k on the used market is my absolute limit for expense...

Thanks for you help!
You should be able to troubleshoot where the problem likely lies without shipping - presumably the sound is bad if you connect the speakers normally, so see if you can figure out how to open the cabinet to get to the drivers. Assuming you can (and I believe a call to Dyn would set you in the right direction) you can touch the leads from the amp that would normally go to the binding posts, to the posts on the individual drivers (low volume of course). If you get sound from the drivers, then they aren't blown and you likely have a problem in the crossover. If the drivers are blown, then you should be able to get the exact driver you need to acquire, and either buy it on ebay or directly from Dyn.

If you believe that direct current was applied to the speaker, you probably blew something in the x-over. In any case, if you call Dynaudio, they should be able to give you a reasonable quote for each driver, for replacing the x-over, and for shipping. They're very easy to work with.
I'm not familiar at all w/Dynaudio. Have you considered Totem Acoustic?...Forests to be specific. Distance from wall would work for you (in my opinion). Also, well within your price range. Best wishes finding repairs or a replacement.
Am I missing something? You love the Dynaudio's, your room likes them, your gear likes them and even your wife likes them. Why would you even consider anything else - you've found it! Get a used pair of 2.8's or their current equal and be done with it.
Budburma, anybody can tweak your virtual system with the link you provided. Might want to change that. I know the majority of the people here aren't like that, but...
Thaks, all good advice. I have been in touch with Dynaudio and we came to it likely being the crossovers. I am going to ship them out tomorrow to the hefty tune of 130 bucks or so. With any luck, they will be repairable (by them, I am and electrical knucklehead and happy to admit it) and not greak the bank.

Fun to think about new gear though....The c1's look sweet, I'll have to see how far away the soliloquy's are hiding (since that is a sweet deal either way!) and find a place to hear the ariel's.....

The 2.8's are pretty special speakers in my system...
