Ar9 Restoration


Recommended Posts

A long and complicated restoration, dented and scarred furniture, broken edges, non-original refracted wood frames, punctured canvases, missing metal profiles on the four crossover side supports, out-of-specification crossover components, woofers full of mold inside and outside the cones, some broken and stripped binding posts, two inductors not secured to the backing plate, poorly mounted level selectors in one case, case support sockets not original and to be rebuilt, blocked midrange to be overhauled, missing internal absorber to be integrated, misplaced inside the cases, one failed tweeter. It was a long and laborious job, for example, the metal profiles of the side panels of the woofers I rebuilt by hand by cutting and shaping one piece at a time, then fitted them to each other manually with a file and finally glued them to the edges of the port panel, despite everything, I am completely satisfied with the aesthetic and functional result. They are two very good speakers.

I hope you got these speakers for free considering the extensive elbow grease you invested... 😁

Wonderful job, very admireable. I love people who spend the effort to fix things, thrown out by others as trash(ed).

Splendid work, enjoy!

Spero che tu abbia ricevuto questi altoparlanti gratuitamente considerando l'ampio olio di gomito che hai investito... 😁

Lavoro meraviglioso, davvero ammirevole. Amo le persone che si impegnano a sistemare le cose, buttate via dagli altri come spazzatura (ndr).

Splendido lavoro, divertitevi

Thank you very much for your appreciation, it was a long and hard work.

And was it worth it ? What are your considered conclusions with the audible result ?

How do they compare with other speakers that you have experienced/ are currently experiencing ?👍👎,🙂😲☹️.

Thanks in anticipation !

"Was it worth it?" of course it was worth it, especially for the owner of the speakers who had never heard his Ar9s the way he hears them now that they are as good as new. They are speakers that installed properly in a proper room and with level amplification, express a sound of excellent quality.
