AR3a with 1", 3/8 AR3 tweeter

Giorgio AR

Recommended Posts

I have to solder the aluminum cables of the 1" 3/8 AR tweeters to lengthen them with copper braids and I have finally found a person who can do this job. The tweeters in excellent condition belong to a pair of my Heathkit AS-2a .
When they are ready with the elongated copper cables, I will do an experiment: I have always wanted to try these tweeters with the AR3a, but aluminum is difficult to solder, with copper cables, the test with the AR3a becomes achievable!
I could just replace one to compare with the 3/4" tweeter on the other speaker.
Is there any member who has tried the AR3a with the AR3 tweeter?

In the Heathkits, the aluminum wires are locked by screws (the same ones that AR used for the rear connection) and these have sheared the delicate aluminum shortening the cables!
