Lucky Pierre Posted October 6, 2018 Report Share Posted October 6, 2018 Greetings, I recently picked up a pair of AR-5, s/n K 17388, K 17389. The PO refreshed the veneer, refoamed the woofers, and cleaned the pots on one of the speakers. That speaker sounds great, the other not so much. Weak muddy highs and mids. I am planning on cleaning the pots on the one that wasn't done and recapping both. I have the big, wax block caps. Is there a way to test them in place, or should I just plan on replacing? If I replace, should I cut the wires at the block and leave it in place? Can I use a brass brush on the pots, or should I stick to a salt and vinegar soak? Thanks!
