Question Replacing/upgrading JBL LSR28P tweeters

The 053Ti tweeters in my LSR28P's are pooched. I really don't feel like spending $160/ea for replacements.

Does anyone have any experience modding these to use different tweeters?

You must use the tweeters it was designed for or it won't be linear anymore.

Ah, well then buyer beware! If they were cheap, and you knew they were damaged, then you should repair properly. If you did not know they were damaged, take it up with the seller. They are good speakers when working properly.

One of mine finally went dark in the treble and it proved to be in the amp. Which you can’t really work/test without a specialized hookup rig. So....i have a good tweeter i’d let go....but you proably want a matched pair.

Honestly, I have other monitors for critical listening, these serve as my tracking monitors and a secondary reference.

If you have a mint tweeter you don't need I'll happily take it off your hands.

However... if you enjoyed that monitor, you might want to see if you can just snag a single one off ebay or whatever, and swap your good tweeter in.

My point was my tweeters are both fine, the amp went funky. Seemed like it was a dying tweeter. Amp isn’t repairable, speaker is toast. Tweeter therefore available.

Bumping a old post here.
I had a similar issue with my LSR28P that I have had since mid 90s.
It was a bad connection within the speaker amp assembly.
It’s a bit scary ripping it apart with glued elements but after reseating connections and resoldering what looked like a bad joint we put it back together and it has not misbehaved since and that was a year or so ago.
