Check out www.partsexpress.com they have a lot of choices. Get 2 that matches your current woofer's specs as close as possible. That may be difficult for that one, it's a pretty high end speaker. They also have surround kits if it is just the surrounds and the voice coil and spider are ok. Then you could check for a shop to replace the surrounds locally. Look for speaker re coning in the yellow pages or google. Good luck.

The surround is the flexible ring that attaches the speaker cone to the frame. It is usually made of a foam material as shown in this link: Surround Kit For 8" Speaker Foam
