MC's XD-717 speakers

Does anyone have a pair of Xd-717 speakers? I have a pair that I initially was going to sell but after listening to them in a smallish room I am starting to like their low volume sound. One problem I have is that the tweeters are needing replacement. The coating on both of them is flaking off and one sounds distorted when turning up the volume some. Where would I find suitable replacments for these? Thanks

Don't own a pair of the speakers, but have you tried McIntosh parts for the tweeters? They have a surprisingly large inventory of parts to support older gear. If they do not have the exact tweeter, you might ask if they have a recommendation on a replacement tweeter. That failing, ask the couple of speaker repair vendors who adverstise here on AK what they might recommend. They may have a cross-reference. Will need to match the impedance and sensitivity to get proper balance out of the speaker, unless it has an L-pad in the circuit.
