AR-4x tweeter dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. A few weeks ago, I won an Ebay auction for an original AR-4X tweeter. I received it, today, but the tweeter is too small to fix into the speaker opening in my AR-4X speaker cabinet. The screw holes do not match at all. Obviously, it seems to be the wrong AR model tweeter, but I am not even close to being expert on Acoustic Research speakers. Did AR ever manufacture differently sized tweeters for the AR-4X model?

I’ve included two photos of the tweeter I received, today.

The problem is you did not win an auction for an AR-4x tweeter. The tweeter in your photo is a later AR tweeter used in other AR models years after the last 4x was manufactured.  Different animal. This tweeter was never used in the AR-4x.

I'd contact the seller and tell him you want a refund because that's not an AR-4x. Any problem, you can file a complaint with ebay but most sellers are honest and will correct a mistake.

There are two listings for real 4x tweeters on there now, $49.99 each (I have no connection with the seller)

This and his brother are the best substitutes today


Perhaps the expense will be greater, but the AR4x were born and designed for these tweeters! You will have a splendid pair of AR4x with the original speakers and above all the tweeters.
