Well it's been months since my speakers have been abit messed up, and overtime they've been getting worse and worse to the point where it's now frustrating.
First it started off with the left speaker not putting out any sound at very low volumes, but I didn't think much of it since it was only at low volumes. I used the z-2300's at about 2-3 house parties where they were blasting pretty loud for hours. The next day after the last one, the left speaker went out. I kinda poked at it abit after trying some things and it finally went back on again. Eventually it started going out even more and I kinda just had to tap the cone abit to make them produce sound again.
More time passed and I noticed the clarity in the left speaker wasn't as good as the right one, but it was still pretty minor. Then it got worse. They started becoming noticeably distorted/muffled. Now the difference in sound between the left and right is dead obvious. It gets very distorted easily, especially when making music in FL Studio.
It's become way too frustrating so I've decided to finally replace the drivers. The prob is I'm horrible with speakers. I've never actually done this before. I opened up the bad speaker to measure the drivers and they came upto about 3.5 inches. I've read from many random sites that the brand isTangBand. I checked parts-express.com to see which to get and all the drivers only come in 3 to 4 inches.
So my main question is, which size do I get? The drivers are definitely a tight fit in there so I'm guessing it has to be a perfect size.
Any help would be appreciated.

Are there any part numbers on the rear of the internal speaker?
I do think they are TangBand as I looked directly on their web site. Some of them look like the front of mine do. I have not had the need to disassemble mine further than unsnapping the grill cover piece.
Logitech calls them 2.5" but I believe that is the cones size and not the total diameter including the mounting area.
