Fabric Dome Tweeter 96db - altern. to Glockenklang phenol 99db (based to RCF TW116)?

In generall, high efficiency fabric dome tweeter without horn are hard to find.
But today I have read in the German magazine "Hobby Hifi" about a new device from the Italian brand "Ciare", type: "MT 320" (MT320)
http://www.lautsprechershop.de/pdf/ciare/ciare_mt320.pdf
(Italian language)

Are there any audible experience ?

An older phenol dome tweeter in this kind is that one from the follow box ("Bass Art Box MkII") from the German brand "Glockenklang":
http://www.soundland.de/catalog/images/products/tn/20/203545-350x407.jpg
and "Acoustic Art MK-III" (= appropriate Button)
Products - GLOCKENKLANG
Unfortunately, this tweeter was just a spare part and not as an industry standart available, and therefore there are some diy projects to diy such a high efficiency tweeter, e. g.
http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/bastanis/vc.JPG from
Bastanis DIY Forum

This Glockenklang dome tweeter is based to the no longer available RCF driver magnet TW116 ("TW 116")
http://i28.tinypic.com/33c655i.jpg
and the cone from the appropriate recone kit
http://www.speakerrepair.com/ebaypics/dia_eaw_rcf_dm_39f.jpg from
Orange County Speaker Repair - GLS Audio Wholesale: EAW / RCF Diaphragm DM-39 - M39

If there are a appropriate successor for the RCF TW-116 magnet, I can order this and the TW-116 recone kit for clone the Glockenklang tweeter, that have 99 db spl/2,83V/m efficiency.

Who knows more about such a RCF TW-116 successor ?

Regarded the "Glockenklang" website more exactly navigation advices to find this tweeter:

1) Products - GLOCKENKLANG
2) scroll down left side of sreen in the button aera until the headline "Bassline"
3) choice the button "Acoustic Art MK III"

navigation advices by such websites are neccesary, because there are no deep links available. Therefore this site is hard to find.

Hi,
I have one Mkll and one Tedd speaker,both from Glockenklang.
The Mkll has the Rcf driver dome tweter.
I have contact the Rcf in Portugal and they said the driver its out of production.
I have notice theres a new one on the newer Glockenklang, do you have any idea what driver is?

Thanks,

Pedro

No, unfortunately. I phoned Glockenklang this morning and get the information, that recone kits from the old driver are stil available, but only few devices. In general the new transducer comes in for replace. The manufacturer of the driver is a good known company, but it is confidential according the informations from Glockenklang. The currently used dome tweeter is separately available as spare part by Glockenklang for 200 €/pc excl. VAT and shipping costs. This model will be available for a long time according the informations from there;
here a pic of the currently used dome tweeter:

Basically the kind of realize is in the same kind as to see at the first image from
http://www.audioasylum.com/cgi/vt.mpl?f=bastanis&m=788
The only difference to the dome from Glockenklang must be the face plate and the direction of the connection terminals of the dome itself.

I am looking for two used RCF TW116.
Additional I am looking for a high SPL dome tweeter from currently production. Close to my requirements are this tweeter from SICA
http://img08.shop-pro.jp/PA01036/661/product/23201999_o2.jpg
and
LP 90.28/ N92 TW
but I want to have more efficiency - at best in the area of RCF's TW116, I. e. around 99-100 db/1W (8 ohms)/1m without horn.
What you have heard about new dome tweeter releases.
