Blown AR4x woofer, repair or replace?

I posted this over at AK, but I would like the opinion of the fine folk of CSP.

I recently paid way too much $ to have a KLH Sixteen amp repaired. It was hooked up to my AR4x. After about 6 hours of play time, something happened. I was not in the room, but my wife said it sounded like when Marty hooked up to Doc's amp in Back To The Future. She rushed over and turned off the amp, but the damage was done.

Seems to have bottomed out the woofer in the right speaker. Now there is a wicked voice coil rub. I can manipulate the cone while playing and the noise goes away, until I take my fingers off the cone.

Question is, do I try to repair the woofer, or just replace?
