You guys are screwing this up big time. Let me take a crack at it, just read this next part out loud to your wife:
"Unfortunately the damage from the cone being pushed in by one of the children is rather significant. The risk is that a voice coil short circuit could occur, which would then of course damage your receiver and possibly even cause a fire. The safest thing to do is replace them with upgraded units, and you best do the receiver and all main (front) speakers at the same time. The good news is that the surround speakers should be fine. You are to be applauded for your patience with the children, you are certainly deserving of the wife making you a special meal and some quality alone time afterwards"
