I have a pair that CP21s that are about 25 years old.
I have tried to pick up JBL 077 on eBay but the bidding goes way over my head.

Are they really $139 each? If so, haunt Ebay for ferrite magnet JBL 2405H's - really clean ones have sold in this price range recently, including JohnAEC's old ones. Plus, if you get tired of them, you can turn around and sell them again, recouping your investment. If you really have to have Alnico, you will have to pay up to $180ea or so for each one and since they're all old, diaphragm condition will be much more variable than the newer 2405H - search the threads to find consensus on sound quality differences between the magnet types, or keep saving for a pair of both to make your own decision. Skip the 075/2402H bullets and stick with the 077/2405H slots.

Good luck!

I got my CP21 at $65 ea, 25 years ago.
The CP21/F is very good HF driver. Beyma is the JBL of Spain.
On eBay, no affiliation.

It will be interesting to see what they go for.

I have heard from those that use the Beyma tweeters that they are good. They sound a bit different from their JBL counterparts, but good they are, and affordably priced.

I DO know that Beyma is a highly regarded manufacturer of quality products, and I saw someone mention US Speaker, and I have done business with them, and Alan is a great guy to deal with. And HE also recommends Beyma as a quality product, in the proper applications.

Congrats on your NEW Beyma tweeter purchase, and please, keep us informed when you get them, I and others, want to know your opinions and evaluation of them!

Thanks, :D

If so that's a good price.
Back in the mid 1980s I did business with an speaker company on the east coast that imported Beyma speakers. I did a few systems for other people using Beyma.
At the time they cost far less than JBL and the sound was very close to JBL.

Maybe your wife will only leave a few bruises.:blink:
My line was "I don't go out drinking, I come home to be with you" and listen to my JBLs. When you get them let us know how you like them.

7 days to go and already 315.00. As a DIYer, though I love JBL, I have been considering this tweeter myself. Pricing is crazy over 077's.

JBL 077 and Beyma CP21F , if neglect say about 5~6 dB less efficiency, everythink good
