swayzeeee Posted February 8, 2019 Report Share Posted February 8, 2019 A couple of years ago, I bought a pair of AR-4X's off a guy from Craigslist, having never heard any Acoustic speakers before but having heard plenty about their reputation. I stuck them in my office where they have been in service at moderate or lower volumes pretty much everyday. I thought they were ok. Nothing to get all that excited about really. Recently, I've been thinking about re-caping them and was inspired a bit by the great AK post about restoring the pots, I decided to open them up and give them some care. Well... what I found after prying off the grill of the first one just now was quite a surprise. The woofer is not at AR-4x woofer at all but an AR-7 woofer! And the tweeter? That's not the original, right? Grrrr. Well... what to do? Does anyone know about these parts? Is the AR-7 woofer very much different than an AR-4x woofer? As in, can they be interchanged? The tweeter appears to be a modern reproduction, probably this one from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/SS-Audio-Tweeter-Replacement-T-135/dp/B00F4FHR16 ...And can this setup approach what an original AR-4x should sound like... or should I go searching for the real parts?
