Butting in here.

I'm "practicing" on my AR-2ax pair but have a pair of 1969 vintage AR-3a's with the cloth surrounds which will be next.  Somewhere in here was information on what to use to re-seal those cloth surrounds on the 3a's and a source for the sealant.  Speakers are in mint condition and are sealed well, but I would like to re-seal the surrounds with the right material.  Can someone point me to the link with that information?  Thanks.

If they have a good seal, then no need to reseal the surrounds. ARs usually don't need resealing like KLHs. Simple test, gently push the cones in, and let go. If they return slowly, you have a good seal. If they return immediately, then reseal the surrounds.
