I'd pop the amp out and measure the resistance (from the drivers) first. You'll need a multi meter but you can pick a decent one for $25 or so.
Set it to measure Ohm(low scale) and test the two wires that would normally connect to the amplifier.
Once you know this information it will tell you two things.
1)If the driver coils.motors appear to be ok
2)What the minimum resistance a new(generic)amp will "see" once its connected.
Also, what is the amp plate size on your subwoofer? (in inches, height and width).
