ctjetta Posted March 3, 2019 Report Share Posted March 3, 2019 I've been looking almost a year for a pair of midranges for my AR5 cabinets. Had I known how unlikely it would be to find AR5 midranges I never would have picked up the cabinets for cheap. Everything else to make these functioning speakers is a small fortune. But, I'm all in now. Having said all that, I had read in a posting or two here, somewhere, that one could substitute AR 3 midranges with the addition of appropriate resistors. I purchased a pair of new "AR3", et al, midranges. Has number printed on back- 12100103 over 1718. They're all black, like later model AR midranges, but they fit the hole in my cabinet. So, I have that going for me! So, now these are 3.2 ohms- can any one suggest the resistors I should acquire to make these work properly? Then it's on to new pots and recapping the crossover. And new/refurbished grilles. in my opinion, never let someone sell you AR5 cabinets cheap. They're not really doing you any favors. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
