    It needs to be re-foamed. I suggest refoaming both speakers so that they are identical. Depending on the size of the driver, it should be $5 to $10 per driver.
    I'm having problems understanding the rest of your post. After removing the mounting screws, is the driver still not able to be removed from the cabinet? Have you tried to gently pry it away? After a number of years, I've seen them stick to the cabinet. Pry it gently and pop, it comes loose.
    If that isn't the issue, please add some punctuation to your post so we can better understand your issue.

    Those Bostons are very good sounding speakers for not much dough. It will probably cost 20-30$ to do both speakers. It will take you an hour or two the first time you do it. Just take your time. Watch the free youtube videos on how to re-foam woofers.
    If am not mistaken the Bostons do require some muscle to remove the woofer. A trick I learned to remove stuck woofers because of gaskets or seals is to take an automotive feeler guage and use the thinnest one to pry the seals like a screw driver...The difference is the feeler guage is pliable and if you slip you won't puncture the driver like you would a screw driver...Good luck.
