Cornwall60s Posted February 7 Report Share Posted February 7 Hi All. I’m a newbie to speaker restoration but have recently acquired a very cheap pair of AR15s that I’m looking to bring back to life. The woofers needed a refoam (which I have done since I took this picture), but sadly the tweeters are completely shot. I’ve tested them with a multimeter and nothing, completely flatlining. I’m in no great rush to get them up and running again, so while I play the (no doubt long) waiting game for a suitable donor with tweeters to turn up I thought I would have a bit of a tinker with the cabinets. Cosmetically these are in really good shape, with just a slight bit of wear and tear and have cleaned up nicely. Both badges however need a touch up, and I wondered if anybody had painted theirs before and had any tips on suitable paint? I’m assuming really any good suitable matt black paint would work, but I thought I would check and see if anybody had any tips on what may work better than others? Although I’m unlikely to do much more to the speakers at this stage until I eventually find some working tweeters, when/if I finally do would it be recommended to also go down the route of a recap? Thanks in advance for all your help! Richard Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
