Tweeter replacement for B&W DM330i
 
Unfortunately these tweeters (TP26) are no longer available.
Here are some specs, does anyone know of a suitable replacement?

Thanks

Not an exact replacement, but with some work on the faceplate it can be mounted and looks very similar. Maybe B&W used the customized version of this Peerless tweeter :

Peerless DT 80 H

Thanks Zozo
Looks like a good offer. I'll buy one and listen if it's doable. ;)

I think B&W make their own drivers for years. Hugo can't you buy a used pair for spare parts? Maybe the DM220 also works...

If you go the peerless route, then I recommend to change both tweeters and do some tweaking on the x-over.

Thanks Taco
Customer will be happy to pay for two tweeters but not for me
messing with the crossover. I honestly wouldn't know where to start.
If the Peerless sounds more or less Ok, both parties will be happy.
You can call this a shame but this is the price I pay for not having a math head ;)
If things sound awful, Ill let you know and post the crossover schematic and well see if someone can give some hints here.

We finally replaced the tweeter with a Peerless DT115 .
Sound is fine, a little too much high, but not worth messing around.

Thanks for the help.

The 100 and the 110 series share the same tweater ;-)
