Yes, you can bring it to electronic repair shop to rewind the coil. or buy it in the electronic shop. if they don't have same brand you can replaced it with other brand same size and same watts of speakers. thanks
The tar like sticky substance is the suspension of the speaker cone and there is nothing wrong with that. Its doping compound applied by the speaker company to damp the speaker ( Was it not always there? ) If the suspension has come off the bass notes will flutter, if not its some other problem. Play some music and put your ears near the tweeters flared horn to see if they working. Nearly 30% of your sound comes from the upper part and if you have damaged it there will be a volume drop. These speakers are quite complicated on the inside. It has two amplifiers, one for the woofer and one for the tweeter. It also has a digital sound processor. Any thing could be at fault, even a simple wrong setting.
Ebay sell Cerwin Vega Surround (rubber bit) replacements. If he has ripped the cone too, appart from replacing his back legs with wheels (joke!), contact Cerwin Vega directly and they will send you out a new "driver". These are easily fitted at home by any one with a screwdriver
If the cone is damaged, it is possible to get it 're-coned'. If you can find a shop that does this type of speaker repair.
Otherwise, call around music stores (by that I mean places that sell musical instruments and PA gear) and see if they sell/sevice Mackie. If you are comfortable taking the old woofer out, just order the part and DIY.
It is not critical that the woofer is an exact replacement (doesn't have to be a Mackie speaker), the important things are:
1) it fits and screws back into the speaker cabinet
2) it is electrically similar to the original (same impedance 4 ohm or 8 ohm) and wattage rating
