I have always replaced mine in "pairs" YMMV go for the pair at $20.00 each and replace the bad one and demo them. If you don't notice a difference you have a spare.
Now..........."Why" did that "One" tweeter diaphragm "Fail" ?? Have you clipped that speaker (for what ever reason)or just how loud is Your Loud?????
If you have a volt/ohm meter check your networks (and your drivers) and call Bob Crites for the correct readings. It might be time to re-cap your X/O's. IMHO every twenty five years or so if they are played weekly recap or just replace the networks. It's about time for my 1989 Heresy II for a re-cap but they still sound Great. But I don't crank them as loud in the bedroom system so maybe that has saved me a HII tweeter diaphragm. 5 years ago I purchased new Type B networks in my 79 Cornwalls from Bob Crites and sold my original oil can Type B to help pay for the Crites. I did the same when I changed out my K-77 Alinco tweeters to Crites CT-125 and those made more of a improvement then new networks. I play them Loud in my small den (fronts for HT and analog stereo) and so far I have hurt any of my Cornwall drivers. So my new networks are working correctly and I have not gotten "STUPID" with the volume control with my MOSFET amps.
