Default JBL Control 5 broken tweeter and reform question.

Hi, I recently got started into speakers. I got these for free from a friend and I want to know if it is worth repairing. I don't have alot of knowledge about speakers and I want to learn more and I thought this would be a perfect project.

The two woofers have foam rot and need to be reformed. One tweeter has blown.
Is it worth repairing?

The tweeters in the Control 5 are protected by a small light bulb in series with them,
most likely this is blown. You can test this by bridging the light bulb (and maybe leave
it that way if you donīt care for this kind of tweeter protection).
