Replacement drivers for M5 surround speakers.

Hey folks, my faithful M5 surround speakers are starting to growl and I was wondering if 6.25" drivers are available for replacement?
If these can't be rebuilt then what recommendation for a comparable speaker is currently available?

Best regards,
Jon

    Describe the problem. There are many available drivers. Have you taken the driver out? There is a number on the back mw65xx
    I want to say they are mw6502 which is very common.

    I think he might be talking about the white/black speakers Polk made back in the 90's that could be put up into corners and such...

    Ha, thanks for all the responses!
    Yes these are truly M5 surround speakers, they are wedge shaped to fit in corners, etc. My searches on this site have presented detail on the monitor 5 but very little for the model I have. The tag on these has Polk Audio M Series with a barcode and 'M5 29687' printed under.
    I was able to find a PDF on this site that detailed how to change the drivers in M3II and M5 but there were no part numbers included.
    Thanks in advance for suggestions.

    Best regards,
    Jon

    I have a couple sets of those and the drivers match those in the AB805's that pop up every so often on the auction site. Not the 800's, but the 805's (and possibly 855's), which use MW7006's, if I recall correctly. Pop one out of the M5 and check it.
