Athena micra sat1B blown?

I have 2 of these Athena speakers that have no sound output. When I put ohm meter leads across red and black the meter starts in meg ohm slowly rising until it shows open circuit.
I opened the enclosure and disconnected the 2 spade lugs attached to woofer. I put the meter leads across the woofer terminals and immediately shows a open circuit. Am I correct in assuming the woofer is blown? Is there a way to test the components on cross over to make sure that is okay? Where can I buy a replacement woofer?
Thanks in advance for an input.

The best place to buy a replacement woofer is from parts express. They can try to match them as best as they can. By the way, I need to say, that I used to love Athena Speakers! They were great value on the market, especially their towers AS-f2. They sounded fantastic for how much they cost. Unfortunately Klipsch bought them out and seemed to bury the company. I guess you could see if Klipsch sells any replacements, but i doubt they would. I never saw another Athena speaker made after Klipsch bought them out, so I highly doubt they will have anything. Good luck resurrecting those Athenas!
