Peavey 14XT Compression Driver
This driver looks an awful lot like a Pyle PDS 341. Are they the same driver? Can anyone post pictures of their diaphragms?
The Pyle PDS341 is not equivalent to the peavey RX14. A diaphragm is not available for the PDS341 due to its direct replacement cost.

Does anybody like Eminence make a driver that would replace a peavey 14XT driver?
Yes we have many options that will fit a 1-3/8"-18 TPI mount, the Eminence options are below.http://www.parts-express.com/cat/horn-drivers/33?N=21711+4294967118+4294966614+4294964598&Ne=10166&Nrs=collection%28%29%2Frecord[endeca%3Amatches%28.%2C%22P_PortalID%22%2C%221%22%29+and+endeca%3Amatches%28.%2C%22P_Searchable%22%2C%221%22%29]&PortalID=1

Will an RX14 fit into a horn using a 14xt diaphragm?
The rx14 and 14xt are both the same mounting and impedance. They serve similar applications so they should interchange as complete drivers with no problem.

Is there any way to test the compression driver? My diaphragm is testing at 7 ohms. I'm getting a very distorted sound out of this driver.
The only way to test something like that without measurement software is to use an ohm meter to determine impedance which you have done. You can pull the diaphragm out to look for anomalies, or swap the driver with a known good driver to see if the problem lies elsewhere.

Compression Driver test
How do I know if the whole driver needs replacing or just the diaphragm?
Generally the diaphragm is the only thing that can go bad on a compression driver unless the driver itself is physically damaged by being dropped for example. Test for resistance or continuity on the leads with a volt meter. If it reads ~6-7 ohms the diaphragm is likely fine. It it reads open or does not show a reading, the diaphragm needs to be replaced.
