Anyone know what the tweeters are and whether they are still attainable?
A guy in my town is selling his Meadowlark Ospreys. He has them on craigslist and I went over for a listen. They sound wonderful and are in excellent condition. Just in case you are interested, it's in the FortMyers section of FL. I chickened out of buying them because I was afraid I would not be able to re-sell if they didn't work out for me. And, I'm getting too old to buy speakers that I can't lift. :)
the auction got too expensive for me :(
811815. Anyone happen to have one or a pair?
If Madisound does not have better suggestion, try this one
close in sensitivity (1db down at crossover but slightly smoother up)
quite close impedance at crossover frequency at 3kHz
diameter of ~100mm (which is it seems diameter of the original, check it)
quite nice sounding and for
for very reasonable price.
For comparison see
Everything that you could loose is ~70$ (even less if you re-sell tweeters). Otherwise you have two large paper weights.
Note that it will not sound exactly the same, but may be good enough (or even better) for you.
If it works, you owe me a lunch :-)

Orig was a Peerless that is no longer made
Mark 2 was a Vifa XT, with "possibly a replacement", but not all Xt's are the same.
I don't think that Peerless tweeter is still available. Call Madisound and see if they have a replacement dome for it.
It should have some numbers on it unless they were removed.
tweeter and would like to know how hard they are to come by....
I did some searches and did find some information on the model and specs, but even back in 2009, finding a replacement seemed impossible.
Are you looking at the pair on eBay?
Thanks for that link!
If you can get them for under $200, it would seem to be well worth the effort to invest a little more for new tweeters.
