Tweeter compatibility T1030

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a T1030 set that has one blown tweeter. Does anyone know what other tweeters from the BA line will fit the T1030?

Needs same: mounting holes, plate size and impedance.

Maybe A70 Series II?? From pix on-line it seems to be the closest size and shape of mounting plate.

I spoke w/ the Tech Support and Parts departments at BA today. Here's what I found:

The following models all use the same tweeter (according to the Parts Dept)

A70 Series II

A100 Series III

A150 Series III

T930 Series I

T930 Series II

T1030

They no longer have any in stock. But this a pretty healthy list to go off of while searching for a donor.

Nice thing about dealing with a company that's still in business.

Appear to be lots of those tweets on epay.

Just to cover all of the bases I spoke w/ the East Coast BA authorized repair center. They used to be able to repair the dome tweeters (swap our diaphragms), but are not longer able to get the replacement parts to the tweeter assemblies. It appears that finding a used single (or pair) is my only option.

After reading other posts regarding this tweeter, I did take apart the assembly to inspect the leads as they exit the terminals. Both leads are in tact until they enter the diaphragm. Where ever the break is, I can't get to it to put in a jumper.

I found a used set of tweeters out of an A 70 II pair. They are a perfect fit for the T1030.

The project is coming along nicely. I hope to get the woofers to Bill at Millersound by mid-February for new surrounds and his upgrades/mods (mass loading the cone and basket, damping coating on the cone, stiffening the cone at it's throat to the voice coil.)

I've said this before--I usually take a dim view of "improving" classic speakers BUT Bill LeGall is a true speaker wizard and if he recommends a mod, it's worth doing! Good luck with those speakers.

I've been using these speakers for about a year now in our formal living room.  We could not be happier with their fidelity. 

Bill found that the spiders were shot in all four woofers.  It appears that the previous owner continued to drive the speakers after the surrounds were deteriorated.  Amazingly, the voice coils were still good.  Bill replaced the spiders, surrounds and dust caps.  He is an artist.

Lots of cleaning and deodorizing, a replacement tweeter, four rebuilt woofers, and a little running around... it all worked out for under $200 and they play "like new".
