Help me replace a blown woofer for a Spica TC-60

How do I replace a blown woofer in a Spica TC-60 loudspeaker? The datasheet is here. I am generally capable, but don't know anything about building/repairing speakers. Can I get away with replacing just the one? Is there any danger of damaging the crossover (whatever that is)? The very nice guy from Madisound recommended a ScanSpeak replacement but how do I know if it will fit and/or work properly? If I'm reading the datasheet correctly, the original seems to be 180mm in diameter, and the replacement he recommended 170mm - is this a good idea? How can I tell if there's anything else I should try? What, if anything, do I seem to be overlooking? Thank you!

Madisound is great and has been around forever. ScanSpeak is also excellent.

If it were me, and I had a pair of speakers with only one blown component, I'd replace both the damaged and the undamaged speakers so the pair was identical following the repair.

The woofer in the Spica TC-60 is a Peerless 832732, according to the Spica datasheet, but that speaker doesn't appear to be available. Comparing its data to the ScanSpeak, it looks like the two speakers are quite a bit alike. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the ScanSpeak and put it in the Spica. Up to you if you want to replace both speakers at once. Wouldn't hurt, but not required.
