    Default Fixing up my old Mini Monitors - crossover question

    I have a pair of Mini monitors that I purchased back in 95 (I think).
    One of the tweeters blew out and I was going to trash them. Instead, they got cannibalized a little bit.
    Now I'd like to get them back into service. I have located some replacement tweeters (SL4000) and the 5.25" drivers are in good shape. (MW5505).

    The crossover components are long gone. I think it was an RE1500-1.

    Does anyone know the crossover point? I'm guessing it was at 3Khz.
    I can rebuild a crossover if I know the crossover point or at least be close

    any information is appreciated, thank you.

    Turns out the replacements are no longer available!
    I need both tweeters or a comparable substitute.
    Can anyone tell me the specs on a SL4000 tweeter?
    The cutouts are 2" in diameter.

    I need to know some info such as the impedance (4 or 8?)

    I also found the schematic for the crossover (one 3.3 uF cap and a 0.2 mH inductor coil). I got it all back together but I found that both tweeters are gone. I have a generic, harsh tweeter in there for now but I'd like to get a silk-dome installed

    ANY help is appreciated

    thanks,

    The DCR on mine are 2.5 ohms so i am guessing the impedance would be about 4 ohms, I had always thought they where made by peerless like the ones used on the monitor 10
    There is no cure....
