GD70 Posted October 21, 2016 Report Share Posted October 21, 2016 A couple weeks ago, I had to pick up my son at the train station. I was a half hour early so I stopped to get some T.P., In the same small shopping center is a GW. I maybe stop there 4-5 times a year, always nothing or crap. The donations area door was open and when I looked in, sitting on the floor against the wall were the backs of a set of AR's! Wasn't sure yet if they were 3 or 3a's. Yup 3's! 50 bucks and they were in my back seat and trunk! Also they are sequential! The cabs are in overall very nice shape, but will need some minor veneer repairs and refinishing. One original grill was crudely spray painted black including the badge & 3 pin, the other grill is MIA. The metal screens over both mids were removed. ;-( My guess was to boost the output. Got them home and as I expected, no sound from the mids & tweeters, rotating the pots did nothing. I have a bunch of pots I cleaned up in good condition to swap out, hoping this is why there's no output. I'll also put in new caps. I'll probably send the mids to Roy for rebuilding once I confirm they are producing sound. I hope he has some spare covers for the mids in his parts stash! Here's some pics.

Lots of corrosion in the pots. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
