Fisher Speaker Tweeter Help? (XP-6B and XP-5A)


I have a pair of Fisher XP-6B's that I really like, but the tweeter is blown on the right one (not an uncommon occurrence from what I have read). I picked up a pair of Fisher XP-5A's (in great condition) on the serious cheap at the local thrift store wholesale lot recently, and was wondering if the tweeters in the those speakers were the same kind and if it would be possible to swap them out. Does anyone have any experience with this or know of a good place to find more info on this?

As a side note, I currently have the XP-6B's hooked up to a vintage Fisher 200T and my wife absolutely loves the sound (very warm and creamy, but then a tweeter is out...), so I would like to get these up and running properly with a pair of healthy tweeters. I know, I know--if my wife loves the sound already, why fix them, right? I wish I had an answer for that other than I am curious what they sound like fixed...

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
