    One of my Focal tweeters has gone bad and although Loudsystem claimed that focal would honor the warrenty they will not and now I need a new tweet. So, moving on from that, I am looking at buying a new tweeter. To save money I'm specifically looking at getting a quartz tweet instead of a focal tweet and running it on my system.

    How much of an effect would this make?

    thanks :)

    if you replace a tweeter with something different, replace both tweeters not just one.

    I would not use two different tweeters, it would probably not sound that good.

    Can you not buy a replacement part?

    Focal said since I bought through a vendor then I would have to get the warrenty replacement through them. The person the focals were bought from were loudsystem and he's the one I was told to call focal and tell them I bought the speakers through audio atmosphere.

    :dunno:

    It's a 100$ tweet I think. I guess I could buy a single from focal buy havent called and asked.
