Celestion Ditton 442 broken tweeter

One of my old Celestion Ditton 442 tweeters is broken. I have sent it to be fixed but they did not do a good job: it sounds much less than the other one. Is there any way I can solve this? Is there any replacement tweeter I could use? Than you!

    Exactly the same here. If we could identify a modern replacement, maybe that would do instead.

SOURCE: on my celestion ditton 150's there a gritty

Hi Lewsville,
Assuming after more than 6 months you still have the same problem...
The most likely explanation is that the voice coil is burnt out. This will definitely affect sound quality and will probably deteriorate over time. Cleaning won't fix this problem. You'll probably need to get the speakers re-coned by a speaker technician.

My Ashdown amps tweeter cone plastic screw on surround has broken and the amp is old now. It's a ABE 400 combo and I think the part is probably not in production anymore.......any ideas? Cheers

Either you can get a sutiable tweeter to be fitted which matches the size and fits correctly.
If the amplifier is good order it can be restored , if not as mostly the older generation has moved off it will be difficult to replace the board or components. You can fit in a newer version of a power amp board.

The tweeters are not working

The crossover caps may have failed, or the tweeters themselves burned out. Using a small 1.5 volt cell touched across the tweeter leads should produce a sound. If not- they are burned out.

I had a party last weekend, and someone put their finger into the tweeter for my celestion is dented but still works. are there any shops that do spare tweeters for those speakers? i really hope...

If you have little kids the center of a tweeter is the perfect place to poke, And wow it dents just like that. Hears a tip. Get some black electrical tape and cut a piece just big enough to fit on the dent, leave a tail piece to hold on to, Then with a quick yank pull the tape directly toward you. this in most cases will pull the dent out clean. There are some cases where leaving the dent may cause distortion in the first harmonic however this is very small so the dent though ugly , presents no problem. THE GREAT OZ.

The sound from my home stereo sounds muffled. I checked for loose wires but did not find any. I have Celestion 15 speakers - they are about fifteen years old.

Muffled sound? Like no treble? Wires wouldn't cause it. Could be bad tweeters.

More specific details re: electronics, source(s) might help.

Tweeter not working

Check the continuity of the removed tweeter with a VOM meter (I use an original Heatkit MM-1 available on eBay for $20) and do the 1.5 volt battery click & scratch test mentioned above.

Celestion A3 tweeters (also used in the A1 and A2 speakers) or the replacement diaphragms are no longer available from Celestion. A1 speakers show up regularly on the United Kingdom eBay website for $300 or less and are small enough to economically ship to the USA. You would also end up with a midrange spare speaker (assuming it is the same as in the A3 cabinets)

The part number for the A series 3 bar tweeter is T4969/P. The 3 bars refers to the 3 bars in the casting to protect the dome. I got this number from the box of my spare tweeter I have the earlier 1 bar castings in my A3's.

Go to do an "artikelsuche" (article search) for the number T4969/P and something extremeley similar shows up except that they list the manufacturer as Onkyo. The part number and description are so similar to what is printed on my spare tweeter box it would be worth 81 euros to see what shows up.
I have designed an adapter plate for either a Scan-Speak Revelator Tweeter D2904/710002 4 ohm, 1" soft dome, 70 mm diameter magnet, $220 or a Vifa D27TG35-06 6 ohms, 72 mm diameter magnet, 91 db, $37.50..Both are available from: in Burbank, CA

I only modeled the front flange of the tweeter to save time. I have not built any of these yet but the price would probably be $400 for a pair of adapter plates and speaker flange modifications. But when you are done you would have replaceable tweeter for a long time to come. The 2 protective bars are drawer handles available for $3 each.

Other possibilities are: voice coil rewinding in the uk voice coil rewinding in australia in Florida can rebuild the woofer and replace the midrange but no longer have the 4 ohm diaphragm for the tweeter.

If you want the drawings (and 3D geometry file necessary for the machinist to make the curved edges) for the adapter plate and tweeter flange modification contact me at

High buzzing sound coming from tweeter

You have to give the tweeter a good old juicy **** and it will go back to normal.

Tweeters poked to death

I know this sounds silly, but I had the same problem. Your speakers have a little plastic bulb that has been pushed in, right?

If so, simply put your mouth up to the tweeter, seal with your lips and **** gently (seriously). The tweeter dome should pop back out and in to shape.

It worked for me.

Good luck.
