dick Posted November 12, 2008 Report Share Posted November 12, 2008 SInce my 3a's are 40+ years old, I've noted in reading in the resot ration guide that the caps have no doubt drifted. What does this mean? That they clip off more frequency or add more to the served speaker? Does the resulting sound of drifted caps result in lost frequencies or overlapping sounds? Also, in reading threads here, I've noted that the early ARs are dispersion type speakers. I no doubt incorrectly think of this something like spreading all sound about as opposed to pointing it? But if pointing, then to where? to a sit down sweet spot? So what is dispersion in the 3as and how does this differ from contemporary speakers?Clearly still the beginner, I'm nevertheless enjoying reading what is said on CSP Forum and hopeful to learn more. Whatever the 3a has, I'd sure like more of it and will soon get to cleaning pots and changing caps. The deliciously articulated and rounded (my innocent sub-audiophile speak) sounds really seem to activiate air molecules in our high ceilinged wooded interior.Lastly, for cap replacement, where does one find the cap mounting brackets shown on page 16 of the restoration guide? Madisound said they don't carry them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
