  1. Here it is. Thanks for your interest. I have another pair if someone is interested. George
  2. You can make an offer on this pair AR 1MS speakers since I prefer selling to the classic speaker forum members They are also listed on eBay: item number 302360543351. So you can go there for more details. I can consider offers until there is actual bidding on them. Thanks George
  3. The AR92 (xxx-033) seems to have a longer excursion version of AR 2/5 10" woofer. Therefore, AR 92 could be considered as an update of AR5. I just wonder how does it sound(especially the bass) compared to AR 5 and AR 91?
  4. Geoff, This is beautiful indeed. Have you tried walnut wood patch for the bare areas? https://www.lowes.com/pd/Elmer-s-6-oz-Probond-Wood-Filler-Walnut/50015684 Perhaps others with more wood refinishing experience can chime in? George
  5. Hey Geoff, I am so glad to see those ancient AR3s are getting the well deserved love and attention from you. Long ago I got a pair of dealer's AR11s which had one side replaced with clear Acrylic to show the famed AR 12" woofers fluttering to the music signal. I later replaced the Acrylic panels with MDF and then veneered with 1/16" walnut. By combing the mids and tweeters of AR11's and the woofers from my old AR3as I got myself one of kind pair of AR11's or Franken-11 as you would have named them. I just have to share the story with you. George
  6. Scott, Would you be interested in taking 2 KLH-17 speakers. One has the original tweeter and another tweeter looks like after market. Cabinets are walnut and look decent. All 4 drivers are working. THey would be a nice restoration project. All you need to do is paying Fedex shipping cost to your address. I have been working with Stupidhead on getting 2 AR3 cabinets to him with just shipping cost. I just kind feel good reducing the clutter in my basement. Again both KLH17's are free except for the shipping cost. edited on 3/20/17 KLH17 speakers are no longer available. George
  7. I lightened the picture then I saw the woofer had ridged cone in stead of the smooth cone of AR9. So someone reconed the original woofer?
  8. You are welcome. Many karma points for you too for making this happen. BTW, Fedex still has your parts in Ohio but will start moving this evening, snow storm or not:)
  9. Geoff, I am happy to accept the upper end of your offer, because they do work and look beautiful. I prefer to ship them in a 30-pound package with Fedex ground. You can use Fedex calculator for cost. My zip is 44139. You can e-mail me the details on my yahoo mail. You can also have the two AR3 midranges( don't know if they can be restored?) free of charge if you add 10 more pounds to the total weight(40 lbs). Thanks again, George
  10. Hi Geoff, I received your message in my email. I don't have any badges. Thanks, George
  11. I have a pair of AR3 with the original cloth surround woofers. What do you think is a fair price for them? Serial numbers: 05809 and 05811.
  12. I just could not resist pulling out my AR 58 1.5” dome midrange/Ribbon tweeter combination from the basement and gave another audition. The bass is a pro version of JBL 14” Neo woofer (similar to that used JBL Synthesis 1400 Array), crossovered around 700 hz to AR midrange. Next to it I have JBL 104H-2 4” mid and 1” 035Tia Titanium tweeter used in JBL L100 T3. I have to say the AR combo has no lacking of mid or high and it has the same sparkling high as JBL when program calls for it. I admit AR is winning me over again.
  13. Had AR4x, 2ax, 3a,11, 9, ,18, 1MS and HiRes AR15. Used AR 8', 12", 1.5"dome, and 4" in many DIY projects.
  14. Thanks Tom. You have insights that can not be found elsewhere! Nowadays Harman is probably the only company that has the resources to do in-depth speaker testing. It is interesting they emphasize both listening and lab testing. I don't think neither Revel, Infinity nor JBL uses dome midrange in their current speaker lineups.
