Default Ditton Celestion 250 - Is it worth fixing it?

Hi,

I have used the search function but found no post related to the Celestion Ditton 250. My friend's son asked me to fix them, I found that tweeters of both speakers are dead. I need help for 2 questions:

1- Is it worth replacing the tweeters on these speakers?
2- I doubt that I can find original part (see pictures), what can I use as replacement? I can't find original part specs.

Thanks for your help

Thanks for thr link, they are very similar to the parts I am looking for but not sure that they will do, the price is high to buy and make a try.

A friend of mine have an used KEF T27 in his junk box I will make a try with.

I tried with the FEF T27 it works perfect.

Since I do not have 2 of them to replace I repaired the voice coils of original tweeters. I never did this before but it was not so hard. Speakers are sounding again, the boy is happy now.

Don't throw away these tweeters if they are dead, voice coil can be repaired easily.
