I just happened to be in the right place last Thursday and caught a pair of AR 4xa speakers in a moving sale. Once I confirmed they were actually AR 4xa speakers I took the chance and grabbed them untested for 20.00. They are in rough shape and will be a a restoration project for sure. Took them home and did the battery test 1.5 volt to see if we had any action which I did. So hooked them up as the were and to my surprise they worked perfectly. Amazing AR sound. Being the newbie here I now have a lot of questions. 1. Someone has gone and painted them with what looks like flat black spray paint on the cabinets. Anyone have any suggestions or know of any products to remove the paint without damaging the veneer underneath ? Or is careful sanding the only way ? 2. My other concern is, did the AR 4 xa use foam surround woofers or were they another material ? If they were foam someone has used a rubber or plastic coating to cover the foam, or was that the way these speakers were. What is the best way to clean up the surrounds without damaging the cones ? I will pull all the drivers and stuffing and start the woodworking project, and try to clean up the drivers as best as can be done, along with checking the crossover components. Any suggestions or recommendations on any of the above would be a great help, some pictures below as I found them. Thank in advance for any help. Brian
