'Hi boredsurfer, you'd be better putting this on the 'multi-way' forum, but I should think the obvious replacement would be the SEAS 27TBFCG aluminium dome tweeters. No doubt the crossover network would need to be modified to suit. The TDL tweeters are long discontinued of course. I suspect I was the first DIY user in the UK to buy a pair. I ended up using them in a couple of designs, one of which a friend of mine still uses- still sounds good too! Good luck with the repair. '

any comments or further info on this would be great, but i have one question, if i biwire the speakers will i need to modify the crossover network? as i said im a complete newby, lol

I have a pair of Musical fidelity MC2's (mk1). The tweeters are metal dome types, they were made by Elac.

i am wondering if they hare the same tweeter as mc4's (mk1), i found some info on another forum about mc2 mk1 tweeters which sounds almost identical to mine he said - 'the label on the back of the (tweeter) unit is printed "MADE IN THE UK" and stamped 25DT 34 348 8Ohm'

mine have same label, with 25DT 34 398 9 Ohm, his MC2 mk1 have same tweeter housing as well, would they be a possible replacemnet for my mc4's?

Default Happy ending!

turns out that the mesh protector grill was touching tweeter, when dismantled tweeter and pushed out grill works fine!

Hi,
I see some MC4 with the SEAS H414 ?
SEAS still makes this dome

THE ART OF SOUND PERFECTION BY SEAS - H0414-08 19TAF/G

The 27TBCG is bigger and might need a bigger hole. A nice and useful tweak is to flush mount the new tweeter.

Hope this helps.

For future reference in this thread, I have a pair of MC4 mk 1 and the other day I bought some monitor audio R952/MDs and Monitor 9s (late 80s?) and the tweeters on these look just like the MC4's (except for the different company logo) and sound just like them so I suspect they are indeed the same!
