Everyone else is right, but I would also go one step further and say that replacing your tweeter is probably a waste of time and money.

Tweeters don't magically blow for no reason (despite what a lot of people think). There could be a larger problem that caused the tweeter to blow and the replacement tweeter might not last.

There are so many better speakers you can buy for cheap, that you would be better off just upgrading your speakers.

i have tried to mail edifier and no answer for more than 2 days now.. i dont know what to do , i really love how these speakers sound and they were not cheap for me. i cant find any replacement tweeters online i dont know what to do

LE: also i have no ideea what specs should i search for online as replacement tweeters. For example if i dont find the exact Wattage tweeters will i put in danger my soundcard from my pc or anything like that that would burn stuff from my pc ? Or i can actually have a replacement of tweeters that are alike these not the same but alike and be all good? i dont seek to have the exact sound.. i just want to have tweeters again

I just wanted to ask, if the OP was to replace his speakers entirely, what happens to the old ones?

It's a rhetorical question, but I am trying to highlight the uncounted costs of consumerism.

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.

Be honest, behind the facade of those things, the real priority is just screwing everyone over in the name of obscene profit & delaying any kind of backlash as long as possible. That's the real world.

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.

In addition to what angel said above you should replace both tweeters at the same time if you do get a model that is different from the stock one as they will sound pretty different otherwise.

If you still want to give it a shot anyway, dayton audio has some very affordable options:

Worst case you're out $18 for both speakers, worth the shot if you like tinkering.

They won't mount to his speakers correctly, I already looked into those tweeters along with the other 4 ohm tweeters on partsexpress.

Thats part of the problem. If his tweeters were just a simple tweeter, then at least we could find a random cheap tweeter he could try. However his tweeters have a waveguide with a 4 screw mount. To make matters worse, I can only imagine that the hole for the tweeter is probably larger than usual, so a regular tweeter might not even have a chance to mount correctly even if you are willing to drill new holes.

I am passively searching on aliexpress and some other chinese supplier sites to see if maybe there is a driver that looks similar to the stock tweeter. I can't even find anything remotely similar so far.

Yeah, it'll need modification to get it to fit properly for sure. Pretty much why I ended it with "if you like tinkering", as that's the only reason to even attempt to "fix" them.

I mean, the logical thing to do if you want a proper functional set is to sell them for "Parts or repair" and get a new pair, as I've seen the drop below €70 quite regularly.

ah, I was thinking more along the lines of tinkering with the crossover which will almost certainly be necessary.

I know I'm late to the party but if you really have nothing to lose why not just spend a few bucks and see what it sounds like? I dunno about everybody else but I have a local electronics parts store here that has all different kinds of random off brand drivers for 5 bucks all the way to 200 bucks. I've built entire speakers that sounded pretty good (A/B tested against some 200 dollar polk speakers and my friends thought mine sounded better) with like 30 dollars worth of woofers and tweeters. Don't think that you have to get the EXACT tweeter model to still make them sound close enough. He's definitely not trying to monitor reference material with his Edifier system.

I miss $250 GPUs that could still play everything.
