sudhir Posted January 11, 2019 Report Share Posted January 11, 2019 I was home for the holidays and dad showed me his latest find. A pair of not so well kept AR94ER . The speaker appear to be intact except for the tweeter which has been replaced along with the capacitor which is now 3.5μF. I have a pair of spare tweeter for a AR18 project and a few 6μF capacitors to start experimenting with. Now I am wondering if the rest of the drivers are intact as I think they are. Please give me your suggestions. 1. Full speaker. Someone decided to give it a go with a silver paint can. 2.Closeup of surround and woofer material. (is this the original?) 3.Middle driver - speaker A 4.Middle driver - inside (surround seems to be stuck from behind, I though it was supposed to be from the front?) 5.Lower driver - speaker A 6.Crossover -speaker A 7.Middle driver - speaker B 8.Lower driver - speaker B 9.Crossover -speaker B 10. Tweeter ( dont know what tweeter this is ) Now if I get the original tweeters for this is it worth the time and money? I can have my neighborhood carpenter sand and spray the cabinets black again. Replace the tweeter and capacitor. But are the woofer and the materials clean enough? The plastic top and bottom are fine and intact. Cloth is reasonably good , but could use a wash. Dad uses a TSW 510 right now. Even though they are a bit bright, they work well with his ears. How do these speakers fair against the TSW. I use AR18s and love them to bits. Would these sound closer to the 18s? Regards, Sudhir Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
