ATC SCM20 tweeter replacement

One tweeter in our ATC SCM20SL (passive) has stopped working. Is it best to assume it's the tweeter and not the crossover or something else? It's completely dead.

It's a D27TG-46-06, which is no longer available. Is it best to replace it with a new model? Both of the pair I assume.

I tried ATC support but I haven't heard back.

Thanks, Dom

A Vifa D27TG-35-06 might work.

They are available from Falcon Acoustics or Wilmslow Audio for about £30 a pop.
You might need to swap the faceplates with your old dead ones since ATC fitted their own. That faceplate may well be the only difference between D27TG-46-06 and D27TG-35-06.

Or even a Scanspeak Discovery D2606/922000 which are marketed by Scanspeak as direct Vifa replacements.

Best to have it confirmed by ATC though.

They are probably on their way back from NAMM is the USA.

I would wait a day or two and then give them a ring if you don't hear anything.

Thank you both. Finally got to speak to ATC - their option is to upgrade to their newer tweeter for £277 each.

I went with the £29 Wilmslow Audio option, indeed their D27TG-35-06 tweeter is apparently identical, apart from the faceplate, as you say.

Best,

Dom
