Recommendations for replacing a damaged Usher BE-718 beryllium tweeter
I have a pair of Usher BE-718 speakers with the beryllium tweeters. I bought them used years ago and after shipping, there was a dent in one of the tweeters. I could not hear the difference, and money was tight, so I did not replace. Well, recently the tweeter cracked, so now I need to replace. However, I'm having a hard time locating a single (or pair) of the original
beryllium tweeter(s). The new diamond series might be good, but they appear to cost $900 for a new pair... approximately what I could sell the speakers for if they had both tweeters working. While I like the BE-718s, I'm pretty sure that I do not want to go down the new diamond path. Any suggestions/ideas? Someone have a single (or pair) of old beryllium (or diamond) tweeters they want to sell? Ideas for possible speaker "projects" using the existing cabinet and woofers? Thanks!
