Replacement part number PRO 002 G
This is a rebuild of the 1" airspring tweeter found in many Epicure speakers from the late 70s, characterized by a cast aluminum 5" diameter faceplate, with a raised "natural" silvery ring at the edge and "EPICURE" logo below the dome.

The number on the identifying stickers, if yours has one, might be 1205.
This part is a rebuild of your old part, which means you must send it in with your order.
If you don't have the old tweeter(s) to rebuild, I do make a new replacement tweeter.
There are a couple of reasons why these tweeters are labor-intensive to rebuild: one, for some reason, over the solder joint at the terminal, EPI usually added a drop of a black cyanide-based adhesive. Special care must be taken when desoldering this connection to avoid inhaling highly toxic chemicals in the smoke that is released; and, two, the desoldering and resoldering steps heat up the terminals, that are simply riveted through plastic insulators in the aluminum faceplate, which tend to melt, requiring great care in how much heat is applied and for how long.
I recommend the safer, easier, and cheaper solution, which is to buy and install a pair of the PRO 002 ME1 in their place, but if you simply must have your vintage "EPICURE" logo tweeters rebuilt, I can do it.
In any given case, I reserve the right to ship the new replacement tweeters (and return your old ones) for any reason, usually involving unforeseen issues regarding rebuilding them.
