I'm trying to find replacement tweeters model Vifa D27tg-45 for Tannoy PBM 8 II speakers. I've already tried parts express and did a internet search and nothing so far. Any help is appreciated.

Check eBay and Audiogon?

Looks like they were discontinued in 2010 or so.

I will check Audiogon, but haven't been able to find them on ebay yet. I have contacted the company directly and am waiting for an answer I guess if I can;t get them from the manufacture I'll have to find an alternative. Didn't know they were discontinued, thanks for that info.

What does Tannoy have to say?

I've had good luck obtaining drivers from the speaker manufacturers. Manufacturers often buy up a lot of drivers that are about to go out of production for pretty obvious reasons.

Tannoy in the UK says they still stock the tweeter, they also gave me the name of a distributor here in the states. They are checking for me to see if they can actually get it here and spare me the expense of ordering from overseas. I'll let you know what happens when they get back with me.

If anyone has the tannoy pbm 8 II speakers and need tweeters for these speakers or any similar, I found that you can order them from sweetwater sound here in the U.S. They will in turn order from tannoy in the UK. This seems like the only place they are still availabe from the searches I've done, hope this info helps someone else out and save them the headache of trying to locating parts for these speakers.
