Replace the crossover components ($10?) and wire it back up like the original (find a wiring schematic if you can). Probably not worth spending more that that to try to improve them. You will...

I've done it. Obviously the results depend greatly on what cabinets you find to reuse and how well the woofer matches the cabinet volume/tuning. Empty cabs can be dirt cheap and they are probably...

Good chance that replacing the 20 year old electrolytic caps will help...and that should cost a good bit less than $17.

Yes, by all means rip into them and check out the build quality.

I'd try a pair of triple chamber bandpass subs. Why? Because JBL did it and got sued by Bose for patent infringement....and no one else would have one. Nothing to do with easy or practical.
