fran604g Posted March 23, 2019 Report Share Posted March 23, 2019 Hiya folks, I'm in the midst of replacing the pots in both of my AR3a's and in addition to the bad pots, I also determined that one of the tweeters has failed. It measures at 1.0 ohm - so I'm thinking either an internal short or something has occurred. But, after removing the tape that holds the leads in place (hoping the problem was there - which it wasn't), I realized that the leads for the tweeter are connected backwards in relation to the position of the large red "+" sticker on the mounting ring of the tweet. I consulted the rebuild guide, and on page 11, fig. 3.6, the wiring is illustrated to be the same as mine is connected. Maybe this has been addressed elsewhere on the forum, but is this correct? Why would the positive sticker have originally been placed at the negative lead side of the tweeter? Was this wired out of phase? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
