I messaged Pat recently and He had two Focal tweeters left. $350 each. 
I know both Greg Osborn and Chris Lees have been ringing around trying to find any they can. 
The 121 in my listing are a drop in replacement with the same specs.

Unscrew the tweeters from cabinet and there should be a label on the magnet with model number.

The Trevor Lees use the Focal 120. Inverted Kevlar dome. Hard to find new. 
 

*** sorry just saw you had mentioned that. 🙈

The TC120k is a much more detailed beautiful sounding 93dB efficiency unit with a huge 1.4kg weight structure and larger faceplate than the TC90k a 91dB and 0.6kg Unit. Well worth repairing to original spec. I would get the replacement voice coils and professional installer to do it as the alignment appears tricky. There is a risk if the repairer tries to resolder broken coil wire that it will be shorter than before and the specs all change along with the sound. The new coils and repair are reasonable price.

I am surprised that you are surprised by the nature of some humans.

I’ve cranked those speakers (they used to be mine)till windows rattle but i had the benchmark amp. i suspect amp may be the culprit?

Ha I know!  They’ve been great, so I’m pretty annoyed!  I tend to take care of my stuff!!  How do you feel the amp is the culprit? I did actually hear some ear-splitting noise just as I returned from seeing some friends off.  I’m pretty sure someone just spun that vol knob to 11...

A clipping amp will punish speakers.

Takes an awful lot to clip that amp I would reckon though....

Any amp regardless of Watts or clipping, when pushed to the max or close to it can damage drivers and tweeters are the most vulnerable due to the fragile and thin wire voice coils.

G'day Mat

 

I've had 2 experiences with Total Recoil. Admittedly some time ago.

 

Neither ended well.

 

I wouldn't let them touch my speakers, even it was free.

 

Just my 2 cents worth.

Anyone- If you are in Melbourne then please do the right thing by your speakers and take them to Atilla in Thomastown.
