There's a company that sells re-foam kits specifically for Boston A 40's - http://www.wooferrepair.com/
I did refoam a pair of EPI 100's, and it does take lots of time to get off all the old foam. You also have to get the woofer basket clean...I mean Adrian Monk clean. Otherwise there is the horror of the surround not sticking to the basket. Otherwise, it was not too difficult a project.
("Adrian Monk" refers to the TV series about the obsessive-compulsive detective. See http://en.wikipedia....onk_(TV_series) )

>DO replace, what speakers should I use and where should I buy
You can repair your woofers yourself with the re-foam kits available.
You will only be replacing the rotten foam surrounds, no more.
Re-coning the woofer is replacing the surround, cone and spider.
This is usually, in the case of burnt voice coils, and I don't think you will be successfull today, finding the exact original re-cone kit.
You really want to repair yours, the new replacements sound differently.
If you do need to replace yours, a good source is ebay for example.
If they aren't blown, they may need re-foamed as well.
Always try for the original parts, if you want and enjoy the original sound.
Original parts or OEM are not available now new.
If you are not up to the challenge of re-foaming, there is several suggested business' that do quality work, for a fee, plus shipping and handling.
