  1. Well,I do not know that they need replacing.I just got them in.I usually gather information before actually doing the rebuild.I have two bad mid driver's with burnt up voice coils,

    So I was not able to hear them.When and if I sell them,I usually replace all capacitors.I will not sell a piece of equipment,not knowing it is fully up to spec.Most capacitors I have found,have a

    20% +/- tolerance.I like to replace them with a 5% to 10% cap.I really love the older,well made pieces,I believe they should be as close,or better than original,when I am finished with them.

    I will pull them out,and test them of course,It just save me a little time to already know what I might be knowing,so I can source them before hand.Thanks,Rob

  2. Thanks Stimpy, I have done surrounds,and speaker realignment  to several sets of AR speakers,but,on these,it looks like the material has become unglued from the card board tube.There also seems to be little rips in the material.I noticed rub marks also.I can not figure out what would cause this to happen.The rest of the drivers,and cabinets are in great condition,so thank you,I will call Bill,at miller sound.Rob

  3. Chris,You recently repaired my 2ax tweeter.Thanks,it works great.That same speaker fell from its perch.Now the bass driver buzzes,or barely works.So,I am also in need of a woofer.If you come across more than you need,give them my contact imfo.If you do,I will send you the blown speaker for shipping price.There are some on ebay,but they have been refoamed,and I am trying to stay original.Thanks,Rpb

  4. Does anyone have a picture of the back(magnet) of a DQ 18 bass driver?Are there any identifying marks,stamps,or stickers?There is a pair I am trying to buy,I just want to be sure the driver are unmolested and original.I would have to drive 100 miles to pick them up,and the owner(2nd) does not know.Thanks for any help.

  5. I just came across a pair of B-A  T 930 II.The tweeters work fine,but the midrange's and basses flutters and chirpped at just under 50 watts.All controls were flat.I know now the the bass speakers are transplants,they read low 5 ohm.I pulled one of the midrange speakers,it had Made in taiwan stamped on the back.I guess my question would be,what are the actual specs for the individual speakers? Also,I can not seem to find replacement speakers,even ones needing surrounds,Any help would be appreciated.Rob


  6. I spent a lot of time thinking about the grills.Since they do not affect sound,should they not be appealing to the eye?The originals or prone to breaking and warping.I also understand keeping them as an original feature,true to the speaker.I made some frames for my 2 ax's out of 1/2" square dowels.I am just waiting for the material to finish them.I do have the originals,but they  are in sad shape.I will post pics when finished.Now,I guess I will have to refinish the cabinets.Just my 2 cents.Rob





    I have a pair of KLH 17's and a pair of 4 ax's.$150.00 a pair plus shipping.Both are in good condition internally.All original.Have to make room.Any questions?Just ask.The
    AR's are mismatched(serial No's)Both have minor chips and scratches.I have pic's of all,Just ask.Thanks,Rob
