alkermes Posted March 28, 2017 Report Share Posted March 28, 2017 Just picked up a pair of AR-18's based on the favorable comments I've read here. I was surprised at how small they were. I am curious to see how they compare to the older 4x's. The vinyl wrap is in nice shape, it's actually pretty nice looking. The crossover could not be simpler, unless they left the switch out. I had a few questions... As you can see the tweeter screws are rusty, just cosmetics but I'd like to replace them, are they are standard size? Foams need replacing, I was thinking of trying the SpeakerWorks foams as I read here that they were liked. I'm happy to go with someone else though. The foam grilles, or whatever the material is, are actually in perfect shape. However, they do smell darned musty from long term basement storage. Is it safe to wash these? To reseal the woofers, is it OK to use the duct sealant like for the 3a's etc.? I have a lot of that left over! Would it be worth it to replace the poly fill with fiberglass? As a part of the restore, I will recap and update the speaker terminals to modern binding posts. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
