I have been searching for a possible replacement tweeter for my 107's. What do you guys think of this one? The specs looks rather Nice, and reviews sees to be good. http://www.dynabel.no/Resource/File/988/SB-ACOUSTICS_SB29RDC-C000-4.PDF

That looks like their version of a very basic and cheap 10mm plastic cone tweeter that every loudspeaker manufacturer in the world makes. Shocked
I think the least you could do it track down a 1"/25mm cloth dome of some sort. Wink

My guess would be Audax or scanspeak.

Morel MDT29 look interesting:

I am using SB Acoustics SB29RDC very nice, but they need extesive work to make them fit! http://www.sbacoustics.com/index.php/products/tweeters/sb29rdc-c000-4/

I hve recently aquired a pair of the prefered (unavailable) Vifa MG27 but haven't swapped them out yet http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi-way/97269-better-4-ohm-tweeter-than-vifa-mg27.html

Good luck!
