Assuming they use the same ribbon tweeter in other models, it's definitely not the same as the Dayton Audio one;That AMT tweeter sure as heck looks like the $35 AMT Mini-8 from Dayton / Parts Express. https://www.parts-express.com/Dayton-Audio-AMT-Mini-8-Air-Motion-Transformer-Tweeter-275-095
But I have seen very similar ones on Aliexpress;

Btw, that passive filter in the Elac Carina FS247.4 makes you instantly sad of course.
So the drivers are probably from a mass manufactured production company in Asia somewhere. (on Aliexpress you often will find the rejects and such)
Although that sounds like strange, I think that the vast majority of loudspeaker drivers come from these kind of production manufacturers.
Goes to show why it is absolutely essential to also do a little teardown and see and show what parts are being used.
A good quality product contains more than just RAW audio performance.
So if you want to be as objective as possible, this is an essential part of any objective review.
Even more so if you want to explain certain discrepancies. Otherwise everything can be dumped under the term "resonances".
Which is on itself a very useless and meaningless term without context.
