    Hi, does anyne know where i can get a replacement tweeter for wharfedale valdus 500s from, other than wharfedale itself as they can not help. The shop where they are being fixxed said the tweeter slots in to the cover rather than being screwed in (didnt give me anymore info but i can find out if needed). any help on where i may be able to find a suitable replacement or ideas on the cost of a replacement would help aswell (as these only cost £200 5 years ago i dont really wanna spend too much) , it doesnt have to be the same tweeter either.

    Thanks for any help

    oh I dont know if i am allowed to do this , ill edit it out if so, but if any1 has the right tweeter they can put it in the classifieds for me and pm me :)

    thanks

    I would remove the tweeter and look for any identification marks. The chances are Wharfdale bought the driver from someone else.

    When you say it does not need to be the same tweeter, why is this

    Hey altho I posted a long time ago, thanks for the help...

    The guy I took my speakers to eventually found some after 3-4 weeks of lookin and now they are fixed :)

    Unfortunately Ive moved back from uni and havent had a chance to paly with them since about a month after they wer fixed and have been sitting in my garage :S

    doh!

    hopefully Ill move out so i can use them again, but they are too good to sell :)
