I opened my old onkyo SKF-4600 tower speakers.

It has 2 5" speakers @ 12 ohms
and 1 1" tweeter @ 6 ohms.

Tweeter is not working. (confirmed by checking with working tweeter from another tower speaker)
Can it be repaired? Any alternate tweeters in market?

Also, Out side of box its written. Speaker can handle 120 W @ 6 ohms. How did combination of 2 12 ohms and 1 6 ohm become 6 ohms?

your speaker is a combination of not just the drivers but also a crossover which has its own impedance.
