The main thing I see here is the fact that you have a matched pair. I also run dual matched subs so I know where you're coming from. $400 may seem like a lot, however, these are great units. If you had just one, I would probably say replace .. if you were to go with new units, your cost is 2x a single unit, assuming you still want to run a matched pair.
As a final note, I owned a small electronics repair business for 10 years. If a customer stated "I'd like to get it fixed, but 90 days parts and labor seems to short for the money spent" .. I would say, "What would make you feel comfortable..?" If he said 2 years parts and labor, I would decide if I felt the repair would hold up that long. If I thought it would, I would agree. After all, business is business, and in this economy, shops can use all they can get.
If I felt that the repair had a good chance of failure short of two years, I would not do the deal. I'm telling you this because if you have this discussion with the shop, and they say "No way" .. it should give you a pretty good indication of their comfort level with the repair. IOW.. if they say "No way" .. I would walk, since the odds are the fix won't hold up.
