Default Apple iPod Hi-Fi Boombox repair 3 inch speaker.

Hello !

So I really don't know much about speakers but I need some advice on attempting to repair a portable boombox I have. Its the Apple iPod Hi Fi boombox that has been discontiuned for
several years. one speaker blew out, i took the thing apart
and it seems that all i need is to buy a spare 3 inch speaker, Ive been told 8 ohms. there are absolutely no spares from apple or online nor much specifications.

"Finally, behind the front grille are the Hi-Fi’s speaker drivers: two 80 mm wide-range drivers—designed to take the place of separate midrange and tweeter drivers—in sealed enclosures, along with a 130 mm, dual-voice-coil, ported woofer in a larger overall enclosure; the woofer’s two ports are clearly visible with the grille removed. The speakers are powered by a built-in Class D amplifier, but Apple doesn’t publish official power ratings."


Frequency response: 53Hz to 16kHz plus or minus 3 dB
Maximum peak sound pressure level: 108 dB at 1 m (AC); 102 dB at 1 m (DC)

If someone could suggest me on what to buy I would greatly appreciate it. I have spent several hours online trying to learn about this product but it seems that I still have difficulties.
