lARrybody Posted June 2, 2018 Report Share Posted June 2, 2018 In April I acquired a set AR 12 speakers in relatively good shape. The tweeter and mid range are in excellent shape, but unfortunately the woofers are replacements. Even with the unknown woofers and the original crossovers they sound excellent. There are pictures on page 4 of GD70's recap post. http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/IP.Board/index.php?/topic/8721-ar12s-restored-a-few-pics/&page=4 The examples on the web have been rare and expensive. RaRa posted that some of the late production AR2ax's used the same woofer. Last week I found a pair in good shape for about one third what the others were. They both test out right under 8 ohms each. New foams are on the way. Here is my question. These have the flat dust cap of the 2ax. The ones on the AR 12 had a second dome dust cap added. I have some 65mm paper caps that look like a good fit. Did the original AR 12 woofer have mesh caps or paper caps? Cannot tell from photos. Some of the 8 in AR woofers that had double caps with the second being mesh. Thanks in advance for checking for me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
