I need to find a replacement Rockford Fosgate tweeter from many moons ago...

FNQ 1401 or
FNQ 2401

If you have any or know of any, please let me know. I have one that failed on me, and I don't wish to replace the whole component set unless I have no choice.

I don't have much experience with those comps but I can tell you that there are a few used sets on Ebay right now. This one may have the tweets your looking for but comes with mid bass drivers as well.

I could not find any sets with tweeters on eBay. The set you have the link too actually have MB Quart tweeters in the photos, not Rockford ones.

I have a feeling these are going to be too rare to find.

I don't have a Facebook account.

I dug around last night looking for something unrelated and I came across 2 FNQ prototype tweeters I had. I am going to try them out and see if they will work.

Yes this may be a hard find.. hopefully the protos work out or you may have to mix it up with something that has similar characteristics. I have some old MTX Thunder Pros that are a nice soft dome in the garage if you need them. Good luck Eric.

I have to stick with originals as they mount co-axially with the midrange on the speaker grill.

Normally I would be OK with changing them to something more modern.

that's the set I have ...
all I remember was that the tweeter was mounted in the middle of the grill

Here you go. Hopefully the guy will ship but the price is right.

That is close to correct, but is the bottom of the line P series not the top of the line Q series.

Mylar domes in the P vs aluminum in the Q. Also, the Q tweeters handle more power I believe, but I don't know how, as they have the same motor structure in all three lines, P, X, and Q.
