Default 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

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 ;-)
