they don't fit :( er.. well i was under the impression it would be a drop in replacement with no adjustments.
anyway, I consider myself pretty lucky here, i found a pair of Monitor 5b's on the craigslist free section, with the only problem being one blown tweeter.
i decided to skip trying to find an ebay deal on an original and go ahead an order the RDO194's after reading everyone's enjoyment of those on this forum.
I believe my original tweeters are SL-1000 they have a brushed aluminum plate with an inverted V shape to the leads on the front, and the back is marked with a couple rubber stamps 5514 04 84 / APR 05 1984 and M5
The magnet of the RD0194s fits into the hole in the speaker box, but the mounting plate doesn't line up correctly, it is bigger than the inset in the box, and the mounting holes are spaced too far apart vertically.
I need advice as I am very new to speaker modification, and my woodworking skills are .... amateur to say the least, I am pretty good with electrical stuff though.
Can i use the original mounting plates from my SL-1000s on these replacement tweeters? not only would that solve my hole placement issues, i like the brushed aluminum look about 100% more than the plastic on the RDOs. I just dont want to go tearing these brand new tweeters apart if A) that wont work, or B)it will ruin them ;-)
Thanks for any advice, i'm super excited to hear these new to me speakers in action.
