Hi every body!

I have one tweeter that is dead. I've looked on ebay and the price for these tweeters are going quite high :(
Does anyone know a drop in replacement for theese? JBL or not but no more than $30 a piece!
I also haven't found diaphragm (original) . Only replacements (oem, quality???)
Thanks for chime in :)

034 tweet --- prone to lead in wire/ foil fracture rather than the coil itself blowing . If you can you should check this.

Any opinion on this replacement diaphragm ? I know that the original is aluminium or titanium, so how about the sound?

The 034 is neither aluminum or titanium, its a soft Dacron dome with aluminum "paint" on it. There is no direct replacement, but if you do go that way you need to replace both. the diaphragms you linked are probably as good a choice as any.
