  1. You should get several answers to this question. If small enough a small “glop” of white wood glue might be enough. Please wait for more answers.
  2. Well couple of questions. What kind of cap and how and what did you use to test them?
  3. Try rotating the woofer. Sometimes the spider gets loose. That does happen by it also be loose so replying it may be the fix.
  4. File is too big max size is 199.76. Try resizing to 100k
  5. Hmmm, These may be the same woofers as the A25 model. How is it misbehaving? One seller has a p/n 509199 S Dynaco woofer on sale at the auction site.
  6. Here is the link for Roys' sealant, he is the person who formulated this for Vintage AR. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ACOUSTIC-RESEARCH-SPEAKER-CLOTH-SURROUND-WOOFER-SEALANT-KIT-ALSO-KLH/193001721613?hash=item2cefcc8f0d:g:aUQAAOxy7rdREiMo:sc:USPSFirstClass!34691!US!-1
  7. Roy has the correct sealant at Vintage AR on the "auction" site. Much better and we know it is correct, the others -who know?

    KLH Nine Prototypes?

    Hi, we need pictures. They should be in JPG format and no larger than 100K each.
  9. Hi the Hi-Vi tweeter and coils are available from https://www.parts-express.com/hivi-q1r-1-1-8-textile-dome-tweeter--297-417
  10. Hi, Your pix should be no larger than 100k. Downsize them and try reloading. Your problem sounds like the "classic" voice coil rub from your description. Removing both the outer surround and the dust cover. Then shimming the voice coil then regluing may fix this. There are several threads with more info out there.
  11. Hi and welcome. Where are you located and only one speaker? Pictures(no larger than 100k) would be welcome. Thanks, RickB
  12. Not only "enhanced" but the woofers looked replaced-double "YUK"!!!
  13. Hi Kap, Make sure your pix are no larger than 100k. Good luck!
  14. These speakers were the house brand speakers of a now defunct chain in California(University?).
  15. Chris1this1 and the Hi-Vi have gotten wonderful reviews but this link shows another replacement(maybe).https://www.midwestspeakerrepair.com/shop/home-audio/mw-audio-mt-4121-75-inch-dome-tweeter/. Has anyone tried these yet?
  16. Your pix are probably too large resize to 100k and it should work.
  17. Bill LeGall at Millersound. Might be able to rescue(recone) your woofer. He has a great reputation for repairing woofers, but that one may be to far gone.
  18. Hello great speakers !!! Download and read the restoration guide for the AR3a. It has the same basic woofer and goes into really good detail on refoaming the woofer.
  19. Well welcome. The 8 is the positive and "0" is negative(ground). As for stacking and connecting be careful you may cause major damage to your amp/receiver if the ohm/resistant drops below 8 ohms parallel. Your amp/receiver may not be able to handle such a low resistance and burnout the outputs.What is your system models?

    NLA grill cloth?

    Hmm, I don't think this is a good match but you have to make your determination on that issue. Plus It says a minimum 3 yards so that may be a a limiting factor also. I would look again at the DoorMill link. https://dorrmillstore.com/index.php/site/products/category/foundation_cloth/17
  21. Hi, The 3 and 3a grilles are different. Cydest are the speakers for sure AR3as or AR3s. Thanks

    NLA grill cloth?

    Yes it is, the fabric from Dorr Mill is very close but in my opinion not worth the many times the cost of what I used. But of course each person has to make their own choice.

    Hi Robert, That is great news and of course keep us updated on the progress. I almost went for them but decided I have too many speaker projects-2 pairs of 3as,2 pairs of 2axs, 2 pairs NLAs,1 pair AR 7s, 1 pair Ifinity 1001s and 1 pair of Lafayette heils(?) lol

    NLA grill cloth?

    I must apologize for the wrong link for the caydo fabric. It is sold now only by amazon. the link is https://www.amazon.com/Caydo-Needlework-Garments-Accessories-62-Inch/dp/B075Q9CV33/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1545222378&sr=8-5&keywords=caydo+linen+needlework+fabric When I did two of my NLAs I reused the black under layment and stapled the new cloth over that after I steam ironed the new cloth. It was pretty easy and came out looking really good according to the "Boss" (my wife). Thanks, RickB
