Dynaxox and HiVi have both knocked off this style of Dynaudio woofer. Both spec similarly to the Dyn’s

Millersound will repair your woofers to brand new condition at a very reasonable cost. Simply outstanding all the way around.
@audioman58 makes a good point, if there isn't any sound coming from the woofers it could be a crossover issue which would be far less expensive to repair then a driver replacement. The OEM drivers are pricey, they are built to last so it wouldnt surprise me at all if it was the crossover. Mine looked new, even the rubber surrounds show very little signs of age.
To be totally honest the Xovers in over 90% of speakers under $15k are not thst good of quality. I know for not only have I owned a Audiostore for a decade
but learn8ng over 20 years ago on parts quality in Loudspeakers as well as electronics ,only 25% or Less goes into the complete speaker including all packaging this is a fact the rest R&D overhead and markup.
and I just upgrade the resistors and capacitors , BTW Dynaudio use parts from their area such as The Very good Jantzen inductors , the resistors , capacitors not that good . If you email me in c o d e I can show you picture examples .
go to humble homemade hifi capacitor test ,the exceptional Tony Gee has this capacitor guide as a loose reference , different drivers sound better with different capacitors and resistors , I totally recommend WBT connectors .Dynaudio drivers have not changed that much. The build quality excellent. In my 3.4 contours I rebuilt including Cardas best -0 Crystal 6-9s copper Litz wire sounds better then their new 30 model it replaced by a good amount I spent $1600 just in parts .
I may be selling these later in the fall in rose wood cabinets each driver has its own dedicated chamber these weigh over 90 lbs each with boxes .
That's not true, you can build a really good crossover for less then $100 in parts, the same way you can build quality speaker cables using 12 ga oxygen free copper for well under $100. Dynaudio has upped its game recently when it comes to name brand components in the crossovers, but even the older stuff was still high quality despite lacking some name pedigree. The sound quality is in the design and execution of the crossover. As long as the parts do what they are specced to do, it will sound good.
