well, I was hoping for a webpage where I can filter for Outside Diameter: 2.31″
but I allready found out this diameter is probably impossible to find

Not much here:

You can't search by the OD. You need to know the size of the tweeter.

How will you adjust for the differences between a new part and the old?

How does the current tweeter mount?

Pics of it apart will help.

I don't think this is worth the effort though. My first go would be trying to find the exact model speaker used or broken and take the parts you need.

I decided to recoat the tweeter which has been done by some people with satisfying sucess: https://audiokarma.org/forums/index...rs-w-measurements.559836/page-3#post-15054290
Sure, the FR will not be exactly the original, but I DRC everything anyways.
