Stillhouse Posted June 29, 2021 Report Share Posted June 29, 2021 Howdy folks. New guy here, directed from AudioKarma where it was stated this forum is the place to be when it comes to Acoustic Research info. This morning I picked up a pair or AR-5s from a local thrift store for peanuts. They appear to be fairly early versions, from what I have gathered about them so far. One woofer has a date of Jun 18 1969, and a rounded dust cap. The other remains a mystery as I have yet to be able to coax the grill off. Serial numbers on the cabinet labels are K08229 & K08262. All drivers read good on a continuity check, checked Ohms as well, but forget the results(horrible memory for numbers have I). Woofers need a refoam and the pots feel pretty crunchy when turned. I'll be digging into these and bringing them back to life, repairing and replacing as needed, with the information and guidance found here.
