I realize that probably most of you don't give a second thought about where your trash goes and the long term effects of our garbage mountains, but for somebody like me, it is a primary consideration when it comes to repair or replace.
Sometimes the easy way isn't the best way in the long term.
OP: I would take this question to a hifi forum, surely the expertise and knowledge there would surpass what is available on this forum.
Here is my rhetorical answer. Turn it into a bird house. Honestly, if you take out the drivers, speakers do actually make decent bird houses. I have gutted a few larger speakers for my cats to play in. At the end of the day, speakers are just wooden boxes, so finding a use for dead speakers isn't particularly hard.
And I am actually on the other hifi forums. I make my own speakers, design my own amplifiers, and the whole 9 yards. And no, the hifi forums wouldn't say anything different because the problem is the same.
We know almost nothing about the tweeter in question. We know its a 13mm (1/2 inch) silk dome tweeter rated at 4 ohms according to the speaker data sheet. We don't know the tweeters sensitivity. We don't know the frequency response. AND we would have to find a tweeter with a similar wave guide and mounting holes so that the OP could slap it back in the speaker without any issue.
You just can't slap any old tweeter in this thing and have it work.
The only thing I can think of is that maybe someone might have a similar speaker up on ebay that you can use for parts. You can also check the tweeter to see if there are any part numbers on it.
