  1. Anders, Here is a thread about a woofer like yours. It is worth reading for the information about properly repairing these old woofers.
  2. The outer edge of the new surround is glued to the Masonite spacer ring. The woofer in the photos shows a ring later woofers don’t have the ring.
  3. It is unlikely, especially with the big caps being Spragues. If you are hearing distortion with the woofer out of the cabinet there is probably no need to switch the woofers but it would offer confirmation. Have you checked the attachment of spacer ring on the metal frame?
  4. If it doesn't rub when you do a manual push test, you can further isolate by swapping the woofers to see if the problem moves. If it is the woofer and not in the wiring ,applying a signal directly to the woofer terminals would be my last choice after examining the cone and all of its attachment points. You can Wait for RoyC to reply. He probably already knows the answer from the sound in your video. Adams
  5. If you connect them to your a and b speaker terminals they will show around 2.5 ohms to your receiver. Your receiver will interrupt, maybe permanently. You could perhaps connect in series but you probably would be safer using an amp rated for 2 ohm loads. See what others say. Adams
  6. Here is one from 1999. Recorded live for TV at the Supper Club in NY, originally as reenactment of a 1930's dance club engagement, it was remastered as a CD recording and released in 2000. Captures the live ambience and energy of an outstanding live performance.
  7. This has been discussed several times. The Simple Speakers version is a last resort substitute for any AR 11" woofer after the AR3. There is no alternative for the AR1 or AR3 original woofer if you want original performance, not even a later AR Woofer.
  8. And those had all Compulytics in both cabs.
  9. Assuming you have the Spectral Balance controls at the same setting on both speakers and your electronics are not the source........ You may need new fuses. Have you tried swapping the fuses to move the problem? Failing fuses are reputed to cause this sort of issue in LSTs.
  10. Duct seal works great and is inexpensive but can provide an unfriendly experience on particle board baffles, if you must remove drivers later. I second Jkent's preference for tape. For your project it is the preferred choice. Adams
  11. They were designed ideally to be placed on the floor, back side square against the wall for best bass but not in a corner. Those should be good performing speakers. Even better if you could get all AR drivers.
  12. Yes original. Those look like Unicon caps and they are probably still good. It could be worth it to listen before you replace. Replacing caps can be a low payoff activity. Adams
  13. If everything is original, the internal cab volume and the crossover specs will matter more than appearance. The tweeter appears to be a .75. Any one of the 6.5" named above should sound practically the same as this Redbox version.
  14. I think it is a version of the TSW110 or possibly 100.
  15. Redbox 2, which was a British reissue of the AR18s, has been discussed here in the distant past. Your description seems to fit an AR8b which can be found in the AR section of the library in the "Post Classic Series". It would help if you provide photos.
