The problem is that the foam is affected by the ozone in the pollution we breath, it causes the foam to break down. It is less likely to happen with newer speakers since a minor change in formulation was made to prevent this from happening.
Solutions to your problem, there are two. First there are foam replacement kits that you can get. You remove the old foam and glue on a new replacement. The issue here is that there could be unseen damage to the voice coil, so it could be a short term replacement.
Second option is to replace the speakers, finding the exact Cerwin Vega replacement would be hard at best since the specific driver hasn't been made on 20 years. So you are left with finding a good replacement, that is where I come in, I have a universal 12" driver patterned after the Cerwin Vega woofer, so you will be able to retain the look of the speaker. Better though is that the speaker I have is a much better performer than the standard CV 12" woofer, and it will work in a 4 or 8 ohm system.

Now the only true drawback you have is that being over seas, postage is going to drive up the price, and also you should always replace your drivers in pairs, so buy two. Given the age of your speakers if one is still working, it will go bad shortlyt due to the break down of the foam. Further when you change speakers in stereo pairs, both speakers should still sound the same since they contain the same components.

There is an old cheap way to test any speaker. If you have a multi-meter, set it on OHMS. Then, while holding one lead against one speaker terminal, tap the other meter lead to the other speaker terminal. If the speaker is good, you will hear faint crackles. If you do not have a meter do not despair, you can do the same test using an AA or AAA battery with leads held to the battery.
Good luck! P.S. Nice speakers.

Should be 2.5 amp SLOW BLOW fuses. Not at home, but mine have a label near the fuse holder showing 2.5. Important to get the slow blow. I get mine at Radio Shack in a multipack (amp underwpowered, blow them often)
