Default Help with B&W 802 Series 80 woofer

Hi - just picked up a pair of B&W 802 Series 80 in pretty decent cosmetic condition. However, the lower woofer on one speaker plays distorted and buzzes to the bass notes. I am looking for a replacement B&W woofer (8" or 8.5" I believe) and am not getting anywhere. These were manufactured around 1988. Since it's for my own use, I am willing to look at a Vifa or Seas woofer and add on a baffle to take the substitute woofer. That will change the signature sound for sure, but usable. Any suggestions on where to find a B&W woofer or suitable substitute? Thanks in advance.

I bought a pair of B&W's at San Francisco Stereo & Theater and had them replace a blown driver once. They stocked the part and replaced it quickly. Have you called them?

Thanks. I just called the guy there, and he's looking it up. His first comment was "That's pretty old!".
