It's really a crap shoot, because it is impossible to merely diddle the
crossover and get a good balance with a tweeter that is not efficient enough
for the rest of the system.

Default Tweeter replacement for Kef 107

An update... I installed new tweeters purchased from Kef (R1549).
Contrary to what they told me, these tweeters are far from being
compatible. The problem is that these tweeters are too loud making the
sound harsh. I am disappointed and I am planning to return them.
