One of the 4 inch tweeters on my mission M7C1 is no longer working properly. You can hear the component rubbing against the coil when gentle pressure is applied on the dust cap. The parts are hard to find and it would be in excess of 150$ to purchase a new tweeter. I love the sound of this speaker.
The specifications are below.

Seeking recommendations from this group:

1) Pay the 150$ its worth it.
2) The speaker has two 4 inch tweeters and I am thinking of purchasing a pair of different tweeters that I could install myself. What kind and recommendations.
3) I can get my hands on a Klipsch SC-1 for 100$, which I was told is of equal quality.



Specifications
Enclosure Type 2-Way Reflex Loaded
Frequency Response ± 3 dB 75Hz to 20kHz
Sensitivity SPL/m/2.83V 87 dB
Cross-Over Frequency 2.8 kHz
Effective Volume 5 Litres
Nominal Impedance 8 Ohm compatible (min. 6.4 Ohms)
Recommended amplifier power 25 - 100W
Cabinet Dimensions (H x W x D) 135 x 500 x 125 (mm)
Finish Graphite Black and Satin Silver

I seriously doubt the Klipsch SC-1 with it horn tweeter has the same tonal quality as your Mission center. If you're front L & R speakers are Mission you should try to find another Mission center.

Are you sure those are tweeters? Very rare to see a tweeter that size, especially in a small bookshelf speaker. And two of them?

You sure those aren't dual 4" woofers?
