Is there an equivalent woofer made for the Spendor SA 300 nearfield monitor?

I've owned a pair of Spendor SA 300 nearfield monitors for about 14 years and recently the woofers gave up the ghost. My question to you is do you know of anybody who makes an equivalent woofer that could be used to replace the originals? I did check with Spendor and (since they've not produced these monitors in years) they would have to produce new ones as a special order. The price given me was over $800.00 US per loudspeaker and I feel fairly confident that someone, somewhere, makes a woofer sufficiently close to theirs that it would make an adequate replacement.

Spendor S 3/5 with NAD 352

I'm trying to setup my home studio, so I'm thinking of Spendor S 3/5 as monitors (legendary predecessor LS 3/5 was used by BBC as nierfield monitors for 25 years, only the best reviews around) powered by NAD 352. I wonder if anyone has any experience with S 3/5 as monitors... anyway for now NAD 352 is only an option, but still I'm looking for opinionsfor best amp for those little gems.
