JKent Posted December 18, 2015 Report Share Posted December 18, 2015 A fellow New Jerseyan bought some reproduction speaker badges from me for his AR-4x's. Those speakers are special to me because they were my first (in 1969). They were also my first refurb project, with plenty of help from CSP members (John O'Hanlon in particular). I asked to see photos and noticed one non-AR tweet so I asked if he'd like me to work on them.These were in relatively good condition but had one Rat Shack tweeter. The owner bought a pair of what he thought were 4x tweets from an ebay seller in Canada but they turned out to be 4xa tweets (with front wires). Our options were;buy another 4x tweet use the 4xa tweets with an adapter plate and xo mods buy the phenolic ring tweets on Parts ExpressThe owner chose the 3rd option so I sold his one good 4x tweeter (will also be selling the xa tweets) and ordered parts from PE. There were a couple of cabinet dings, a chunk out of the hole where the RS tweeter had been mounted, the pots were very corroded and the protective cloth on one woofer magnet had a hole in it.One pot had been bypassed with a paper clip!More to follow.....
