  1. Can it be true?

    These domes are being purchased from a ebay seller zhzy5500 out of China... the seller is offering these domes in a 8 ohm and also 4 ohm version ..... (2) 4 ohm version @ $9.99 or (2) 8 ohm @ $6.99 see picture Attached this is the 8 ohm version which has a dcr of 6.0 ohms.. the 4 ohm version dcr is 4.4 ohms I have purchase some of theses domes and was going to send to Roy for tech evaluations but just haven't had time with my working schedules... BTW.. I'm not the seller on ebay trying to sell these @ that high ridiculous price also this same zhzy5500 seller sales on aliexpress.com under cn audio parts

  3. Restoring my 3's

    imho I think you better off to replace with new frames and saran maybe Kent has some extra saran left from original order, you can pm Kent for details also see Kents documentation on installing the AR3 grille attached. Replacing the AR3 Grille 4.pdf

    Roger ...Who's the vendor you used for those Foam surrounds? Nice job

  9. What is this ?

    I would have to agree with ra.ra ... also I never seen a AR speaker with what appears to me a driver what I call a full range "whizzer" cone in middle...i'm refering to the driver below the mid-dome driver

    take look at this link http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/IP.Board/index.php?showtopic=7978 post#9 where Carl did the Mod on the replacement back wired tweeters to front wired, this may give you some idea of how to approach the mid range transfer to front wire
  15. Hello Kent,Merry Christmas, yes I also have the Heathkit AA-1600 amp which is the step down from the AA-1800 amp.The AA-1600 is a real solid design amp good dynamic amp rated @ 125 watts per channel @ ohms but Heathkit was very conservative on the posted specs because of being a kit form,I have measured power output @ 8 ohms @ 165 watts per channel and 190 watts per channel @ 4 ohms ,and 225 watts per channel @ 2 ohm I have used this amp with a pair of AR3a and it performs very well nice clean low end and very good transit response very well balanced. I wouldn't hesitate to put this amp up against any Pioneer,Sony Sansui Kenwood in that era of vintage 70's/80's amps.I'm in the search bad for a vintage 70's era Accuphase preamp Model C200 and P300 amp I've been bidding heavily on Ebay for these but there very rare and pricing is getting over $1000 ea piece but soon later I'll hit the jack pot and win a auction.
