Pretty much. The comment was aimed at dgta's lumping of the faceplate in with butterfly (there are some drivers like that -- the VIFA and SEAS 19mm units for instance)

Yes, Dave is correct. I did not realize the faceplate can be separated from the butterfly on the Audax. They are stuck together with some type of sealing/damping "goop" on mine so they appeared to be glued together. In fact they are not. They can be gently pried apart.

Well, I ordered and received the parts from Falcon. They don't fit or look like the originals. So I'm still looking if anyone has a diaphragm or full tweeter.

i too had this problem so i made some tweeter not successfully so the only joy i had was to find a tweeter which was used in the model 3's over all it is a better tweeter its round so you will have to cut a small amount off the top and bottom etc it starts at 8 ohms 600 hz to 20khz it aluminum dome much nicer this is the only replacement available i have been searching for 12 months now veandersteen will not help i have rang then so many time getting the runaround the tweeter is for sale on ebay not sure where you live the part number is DT500 you can also buy it from a company called WES Components in Ashfield Sydney NSW there phone number is 97979866 there open from 8.30 to 5.30 pm if you can't get them or find it give me a buzz you use PayPal send me funds i will pick them up post them giving you the cost for fast postage etc its a good idear to change all the caps on the crossover with poly caps your local electronics parts store should have the values 4.7uf 3.3uf

Thanks bigspeaker but I am not interested in replacing with a different tweeter.

Epilogue

My experience with Falcon Acoustics was not a good one. The info on the website is incorrect.

There is, however, a simple way to redo the original Vandersteen (Audax) tweeters. I found it with the help of a local supplier. I am proving it out in the next few days. Anyone interested in the details PM me.
