  1. Thanks Kent, The AR3a box is verrrry close to the AR1w box and mine will be the same dimensions as the AR1. I read that the AR1w box " was filled with fiberglass" but no numbers ? So now I have a number to start with. I have not read all of the AR3a Restoration guide but will .. Lonny
  2. What have I got myself into, woodworking and MATH! two of my least favorite subjects, but I am a details guy so I know the results will be exactly what I am looking for. It's snowing here again so just about time to turn the heat on in the shop and get to work. Ligs I read your other post and I have a question for you or anyone, is there a formula to figure out how much fill to use in each box?? more to come... Lonny
  3. Hello All: After reading a lot about the AR-1W I have come to the conclusion that I need them (but not for a $1000+). I have my KLH 5 woofers and crossovers being shipped as of yesterday . All the reading I did on the AR-1W and KLH 5 I found the boxes to be very close in size, 130 cubic inches (2.1l ) difference to be exact, So I decided to replicate the AR-1W boxes with the KLH 5 12" woofers and some form of crossover/lowpass circuit ( the AR-1W was low passed at 600-650 hz) I should have my wood cut (3/4" oak to match everything else) before my woofers get here pictures will follow...

  4. Hello Kent: I was not aware of the AR-1w, but after reading this http://acousticresearchspeakers.net/2016/10/acoustic-research-ar-1w-loudspeaker-single-lacquered-walnut-finish-sn-09697-2/ It gave lots of technical numbers for the speaker and the box, I like it. IT gives me another way to go , I'm looking for a winter project (we already have 4-5 inches of snow). Being in northern B.C. Can. KLH fives are hard to find, and if you do find one(two) they are $800-$1000 pr. I've priced out KLH 5 woofers, mids, tweets and crossovers and I could build one (two)for far less. The Dayton kits look interesting in a 15" or 18" I saw an ad for the AR 1w $2500 a pair WoW. I'll keep posting my progress.. Lonny
  5. Hello good people: My CB-10's are the biggest woofer I am running right now (along with baby advents and AR 102's both with 6.5" woofers) but feel I need a little more bottom end bass , and after scouring ebay and other auction sites I see I can buy all the drivers I need to piece together a decent KLH system, model 5 12" woofers mids tweets and crossovers cheaper than a complete speaker set.. DO any of these companies (AR Advent KLH etc.) make a stand alone sub??) What makes these speakers so good ?? the drivers the boxes etc, I should be able to make a exact copy of a speaker box and if I use factory drivers and crossovers would it not sound the same? What are you guys (girls) doing for more bottom end? Lonny

    Baby II crossover

    Hello all: I received my baby Advents on Friday and I am pleasantly surprised by the near mint condition of these speakers , people really do baby their baby's. Replaced resistors and capacitors on the crossover boards then swapped the boards to the new binding posts, simple swap and the holes all lined up on the new cups, nice. I am amazed at the BASS these little speakers put out . As others have stated in other baby Advent posts the corners of the tweeters always break off as mine did as soon as I removed one (the other was cracked but did not break off) Simply Speakers has this tweeter in stock so I might order a pair. pic. with the green cap is the old XO and spring posts, pic. with the Dayton cap is new resistor + cap.+ binding posts.

    Baby II crossover

    Thanks Kent, I looked on Audiokarma but did not see that post, So I will wait patiently for my speakers to arrive. I will change out the spring connectors for some binding posts and replace the crossover components for solens. I think these will look good with the CB-10s. Lonny

    Baby II crossover

    Hello Advent people, I am waiting on a delivery of two Baby Advent II's, but doing a little research on them I found conflicting info about the XO's. Please refer to the pictures one has one inductor and one has two inductors, so which is it ?? the only diagram I found online was a hand drawn schematic which shows one .5mH inductor. Lonny

    CB-10 crossovers

    RTally you are the best. I was not sure about the tweeter being out of phase or a typo on the sheet, but I get it. as for the 7.5 ohm resistor I see it now, I can look at the diagram and see the flow . As I stated in another post they did not teach speaker impedance and crossovers in my diesel mechanics classes. Thanks Lonny

    CB-10 crossovers

    Weird that no one saw this post, any info about the diagram above and my questions would help me in understanding a little more about these speakers. Thanks Lonny

    CB-10 crossovers

    Hello good people: I am having a little trouble understanding the diagram of the crossover, if someone could please explain to me why the Terminal 2 GND. goes to the NEG. on the woofer and the POS. on the tweeter, also what does the 7.5 ohm resistor do??? and what do switch terminals No. 5 and 7 connect to ?? I should have payed more attention when I had these apart. Thanks in advance for helping ... singed, Confused in Canada.

    CB-10 crossovers

    Hello Kent: I had to change the yellow cap from a 5uf to a 5.1uf , still inside the +- 5% . I spent a few hours burning a few songs into my head so I could compare the sound before and after but I really can't hear any difference, but now I know they are new, It has been a fun project and way easier and cheaper than restoring a 1968 Oldsmobile 442 convertible.I am still looking for a decent amp to power these.
