So my 2 year old son pulled one of my B&W DM602 S3 speaker grills off and pushed in the tweeter and broke the phase plug on the woofer while I was at work today (see damage pics below).

I know these speakers are like 10 years old, but they were still in fantastic shape. They looked and sounded like new. Do I have any options for getting something like this repaired? Or is my only option to replace them? What would you guys do?

I left the tweeter domes on my CDM-9NTs looking like that for quite a while, until I felt that my kids were old enough not to do it again. Yes, the sound was probably suboptimal, but man, until they got older I didn't have time to just sit and listen critically anyway.

this is what I'm the most paranoid about now. If I get them fixed or replace them....what if he does it again?

B&W sells parts even for 20 years old speakers. Usually you have to call or fax them to place an order. Details are at http://bwgroup-support.com/forms.html
You will find service manuals there too (you will need them if you decide to replace drivers by yourself).

Now is the time/age to teach him that your stuff is off limits. Unless he's taught otherwise, there's always a chance he'll do it again. However a little bit of education and discipline goes a long way. Just a little bit of advice from someone else with young kids.
