Default JL Audio tweeter replacement?

so, one of my tweeters in my JL setup has "broken". I use the quotation marks because, while it clearly doesn't work, the tweeter itself has done something that I've never seen. I don't have pics unfortunately, but the dome on the tweeter has bubbled and bulged out to the point where it has actually broken through the grill that covers it. it's the weirdest thing....

anyhoo, my actual question is this -- does anyone know of a way to purchase just one JL tweeter? it seems like i can only find them in pairs.

Glen, can you direct me to the 75 a pair? The cheapest I'm finding is around 85-90. BOE is over 100, Crutchfield is 150. Ebay is the cheapest right now, but still not 75.

JL Audio packages them in pairs so unless you find someone with similar circumstances on eBay it isn't likely that you are going to find a single. Call Jim at BOE and tell him that you can find them for a lower price and see what he can do for you.
