Do you need the whole thing or just a new coil/diaphragm?

They sell them here if that helps:

Audax Tweeters, incl. TW025A0 ( HD 12x9D25 ), TW034X0, TW025M1

Cal, I only need the faceplate/coil/diaphragm.

That vendor does NOT have the HD9x8D25. I checked.

Edit: Sorry, my mistake. They do have just a replacement coil/diaphragm to be glued in the old faceplate. Not the same as the original, but I suppose I can just buy 2 for a balanced set. That will work.

Thanks much.

hi there i don't know if you still need this part but i bought a pait of veandersteen 2 speakers and i to need a tweeter i found the best way A if you don't have the old one is to recut the fave plat out of 1mm aluminium this is what was use the size is 90x90 mm i will post photos of the template i have all ready posted the crossover updates and drawings what you use for the tweeer is a VIFA 1 inch tweeter module that you glue behind the old or new face plate etc you have to put a 4.7 ohm 2 watt resistor in series with the possitive this is very important as it changes the tweeter from 4 ohms to 8 ohms the start freq is lower about 1,459 k thats fime more head room the polydax started at 5k more head room more detail hope this was a help i work as a sound technician

Thanks bigspeaker. I just ordered the replacement coil/diaphragm that Cal posted above so I'm all set. They're only something like $20 a piece so no need for complicated solutions

It is very possible that the Butterflies (that is what the dome/voicecoil assembly is called) can be had in North America. Many years ago i got some from Meniscus.

The butterfly is sandwiched between the magnet & the face-plate. Because they are keyed it is a REALLY easy repair.

Great lunch Dave.

I know I'll never have the experience you do but aren't all dome tweeters with a replaceable diaphragm like that?
