As Earplug says it looks like they are a standard thread so a proper screw thread comp driver will fit but it really isn't worth it.
It looks as though the piezo's linked to above are the same so buying a replacement pair of those should get these back up and running for less than £15.
Doing this will also mean they've been put back to 'as new' condition if you ever decide to sell them on.
Cheers, Chris.

I used one of those piezos in a lockdown (1)  project. I had a pair of Faital Pro 6FE100s laying around I put them in a box with a Selenium HM17-25 horn.

Rather than bothering with a crossover I put the piezo on the back of the horn with a 4u7 polypropylene cap and a resistor. Results were surprisingly  good.

I used it with a 10" sub (Volt) to play some tracks after the "Clapping for the NHS" last summer.

I have used the ones below and they are quite good.



Terralec sell the same ones for £5.75 each inc delivery:

   

 I've got a pair of those kicking about in a box of old drivers in the garage, you're more than welcome to them OP if you cover the postage, although it may be more economical to order new units from the links above..

Just found this on the net. It suggests a method of improving the sound of piezos. Perhaps someone could comment on this???
