    Question Monitor 5B and 4.5 tweeters

    I've got a pair of 5B's I've had since 1989 and a pair of 4.5's I just bought. I use the 5B's as my main channel speakers and one of the 4.5's as the center channel.

    My question is: Do the original sl2000 tweeters in the 5B's or the newer silk replacements sound more similar to the RDO202-1 tweeters in the 4.5.

    On a similar vein, are there new silk replacement tweeters for the 4.5 that would sound similar to the new silk replacements for the sl2000?

    I'm just trying to find the best combination that would make the 5B's and 4.5's sound most similar.

    I actually found the 4.5's dome to be better than the sl2000.

    So I would recommend getting the RDO replacement for the 5's.
    Monitor 7b's front
    Monitor 4's surround
    Frankinpolk Center (2 mw6503's with peerless tweeter)
    M10's back surround

    RD0194 is the replacement for Monitor 5's. Silky smooth high. Very well recommended. I don't know about the sound of the RD0202's. I just know the difference between the RDO's and the 2000's.

    I love how music can brighten up a bad day.
