The cheapest option without any measuring equipment or XO design skills is to replace the tweeter like for like. contact EPOS or keep an eye out on ebay or similar for a K3 for sale.

The cabinets look proprietary / custom - so I am assuming you don't want to modify to fit another tweeter that has different faceplate dimensions.

The tweeter was probably used in other models too - so check those out. A visual might be all you need to sight which models.

Without knowing the model number, and whether a EPOS made it, or had it made to order (OEM) or "off the shelf" - we don't know what we are targeting re impedance and FR curve for a potential replacement.

It all depends on how much effort you're willing to go to.

If we are talking Epos K3 floorstanding speakers then the tweeter is described as a '25mm silk dome tweeter with short horn faceplate'.

If you have removed the tweeter, could you supply photographs, front and rear, which may identify the tweeter?

Take it out and have a look what's underneath. Could be a normal tweeter with that horn-like faceplate added on top.

Those connections/soldering are not of the quality I would expect of this manufacturer.

Have you owned these speakers from new? Could the tweeter shown be a diy replacement? What does the tweeter in the other cabinet look like?

Have found this interior shot of the Epos K3. Your tweeter looks like the original, but apparently has been resoldered while replacing the tweeter wiring.

Can you confirm if that is the case?

Thanks galu yes there are the original tweeters. I brought them second hand awhile ago. I want to replace them and do a much better solider job that what you can see in the cabinets. Do you have any good suggestions for me. Once again galu thank you mate.

The only tweeter labelled 025D08 I know is the Audax TW025D08 - maybe they are based off those?
