    I remember years ago while putting in new diaphragms into a pair of blown LE85s I thought they sounded better as dome tweeters than they did with the horns attached.


    If you can't find any proper JBL backs, I have worked with a foundry that could cast new ones for you... I would expect them to cost around $75 to $100 each though. They would be less expensive if you needed a bunch of them, but for four or five they do end up being pretty costly.
