Early AR-1W found at Kutztown Radio Show

Recommended Posts

If you connect them to your a and b speaker terminals they will show around 2.5 ohms to your receiver.  Your receiver will interrupt, maybe permanently.  You could perhaps connect in series but you probably would be safer using an amp rated for 2 ohm loads.  See what others say.

Are you asking if you can use an AR-1 on one channel of a Sony receiver, and an AR-2 on the other channel?

The short answer would be "yes", but the combination wouldn't be ideal for a few reasons. 

An AR-1 in working, unmodified original condition is worth a little bit of money;  the Altec 755A driver alone is selling for close to $2,000, so you might want to investigate this before doing anything to the speaker.
