Likely won't work out the same as before. I'd at least change both tweeters, or there will be a tonal imbalance.

Can you get a replacement from axiom.

i belief the tweeter is same as axiom. they LOOK exactly the same. of course not 100% sure, i have to contact axiom see how much they charge it.

but for replacement procedure basically just swap and solder??? nothing else

found a thread about dayton audio tweeter and axiom tweeter.

The dayton Ti tweeter is obviously from the same molds and factory. Frankly, I'd be surprised if there was anything different besides the face plate logo. Or course it's possible they spec'd them differently, but I wouldn't bet on it

You won't know without measurements if they are the same.

It is possible though.

Yes, just swap and solder. Or there may be clips so no solder.

Axiom manufactures all their drivers in their own facility and have done so for many years. Unless they also manufacture for other companies (highly unlikely) they are not the same.
