Hi new here hoping some one can help I think my tweeters have blown in my control 5's both of them.any idea's how to fix them or where I can get replacement parts.

I took it apart and the copper seems brown in colour and a bit smelly.

I'm a newbie to all this speaker stuff so any help would be great

tak.thanks

There've been some Control 5 parts on eBay in the last couple of months, but they rarely appear....
