Default JansZen Z-210a - which currently available replacement ESL Unit

I am looking for a ESL unit from currently manufacturing for this model as replacement. Most important is the outer design close as possible. Necessary electrical redesign at the crossover network is no problem for me.

Who know, where I find such ESL parts?

BTW - here an overview of the threads regarded this brand:
Janszen electrstat questions

Janszen ESL re-born
Janszen Z-210a repair?
JansZen parts or repair?
JansZen and KLH vintage ESL repair and refubishment

How low do they go -- JansZen ESL tweeter?
Rheostat for JansZen I-130 ESL arrays?

Those panels come up on eBay once in a while. No current manufacturers of replacements, that I know of. All the Janszen tweeters are the same size, and interchangeable. Though the ones you have are later models, and the earlier are said to be better made.

Good luck, they are simple speakers and sound great in my opinion.

In hindsight, I may be incorrect in the highlighted statement. Maybe someone else can chime in.

I have numerous JansZen tweeters and speakers, and could use those 130 panels, if he doesn't want them. I'm not positive, but I'm not sure they would work in that speaker…

I have seen 2 different sizes of panels with JansZen, some are exact size of RTR's panels and some are smaller
