DavidR Posted July 12, 2018 Report Share Posted July 12, 2018 The original tweeter (200011-1) in my AR10Pi speakers went OL on the voice coil. I had read several posts on replacements; one sold by VintageAR and another from Midwest Speaker Repair. RoyC had suggested the Midwest saying it sounded very close (paraphrasing) to the originals and was suitable. I checked eBay and there were some original tweeters FS in the area of $130 each. The Midwest tweeters are $70 and are new. I thought I'd try a pair. I ordered two in case they sounded different than the 2000084-1 AR replacement tweeter in the other cabinet. They arrived with bent terminal blades and one was loose. They had packed them one on top of the other and there was no cushioning either on the top or bottom. I placed a call to Midwest and I have to say they were quite professional about it. They paid return shipping and took steps to ensure safe arrival of the replacement tweeters; i.e. larger box so they could sit side by side and an added piece of stiff foam between the two terminals. I hooked one up and was surprised how much they sounded like the 2000084 tweeter. The replica have a cloth dome vs paper on my two AR tweeters but look very much like the originals. The DCR of the replicas measured around 3.88 ohms and the original is around 3.5. The 10Pi are up and running. Now to compare them to the 91s. I already know the bass of the 10Pi will best the 91s.
