  1. Carl Richard (Carlspeak) RIP 11-11-2017

    Wow. I just saw this. I had been wondering why he hadn't posted for a while. Very sad to read of this. He was always very helpful and his articles were always backed up by data. RIP Carl Obituary: Carl E. Richard, 74, of Enfield, beloved husband and best friend of 50 years to Sandra (Drumm) Richard, passed away November 11, 2017 after courageously battling cancer for over 20 years. He was the most loving father to daughter, Jennifer and her husband, Rich Cecarelli, and son, Jason and his wife, April. He took tremendous joy and great pride in being a "Papa" to his grandchildren, Charlotte and Andy Cecarelli, and Liliana and Maxwell Richard. Born August 8, 1943, Carl was the youngest son of Imelda Richard and was predeceased by his sister Rita, and brothers Harry and Raymond Richard. He grew up in Windsor Locks, CT. He graduated from STCC with an Associate's Degree in Machine Design and later WNEC with a Bachelor's of Business. Carl worked for Ahlstrom Dexter in Windsor Locks for 32 years as a Research and Design Engineer, and retired at the age of 62 to explore his many interests. Carl had many hobbies. He learned to play guitar in his early years before discovering a love for photography, and later audio speaker building and classical music. He loved watching the Red Sox and the Patriots play. He was an avid bowler, scoring a perfect 300 game in 2001. Carl also enjoyed traveling, cooking, fine wine and always had a curious, investigative mind. His favorite quote was "Love one another, we're all we've got." Carl's family wishes to thank the staff at the St. Francis Cancer Center for all of their care and support throughout the years. Services have been entrusted to Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels. A celebration of Carl's life will be held privately. Donations in Carl's memory may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

  2. LMR replacement AR90

    You are correct Stimpy but they also used 8" drivers they had 'on the shelf'. Seems there are many iterations of drivers used in that speaker. The three I picked up had the two 8" drivers I referenced. I attached a pic of the (2) 8" drivers I have.
  3. LMR replacement AR90

    Being big on spare parts I've been acquiring spare drivers for my AR90's. I've been successful with all drivers except the LMR p/n 200027-0. They seem to get swiped up quickly on eBay. I've parted out (3) AR94 speakers. The full range/mid drivers are the ones that came in the AR9LS p/n 2100450B. The woofers used p/n 2100370 and look more like the 200027-0 LMR. Can I assume these 8 inch drivers are all pretty much the same? Which would be the better replacement to use (should I ever need to)?
  4. Another AR-91 recap

    Please let us know how Chris makes out.
  5. Another AR-91 recap

    What's with the surrounds on the woofers? They look like composite type you find on old Klipsch Heresy's.
  6. Capacitors Redux

    I believe that's the woofer zobel circuit. Larger driver = larger cap
  7. Another AR-91 recap

    GREAT work Kent!
  8. Capacitors Redux

    Pretty sure the only difference is the 92 board uses an 80uF (no 40uF) cap and the 91 board uses a 100uF and a 40uF on the woofer.
  9. I replaced (for my son's system) a pair of Klipsch Heresy's with Polk RTA-12C. I couldn't get rid of them fast enough. Sounded OK at low volume but it all fell apart with volume increase. I was so lucky to score the TSW610. Are you selling those AR9's?
  10. Wife needs help finishing his bucket list AR92s

    Stewart, Its a RAOK (Random Act Of Kindness) All I need is your addy info.
  11. Wife needs help finishing his bucket list AR92s

    OK I have two extra sheets that I never used so I can cut 2 more. The measurements are: 12 and three eights inches OD X 10" ID. I used the trim ring and traced the pattern. So if you both need some that can happen.
  12. Wife needs help finishing his bucket list AR92s

    I didn't feel as thou they sealed well. I may have some extra sheets of material and could cut some w/o screw holes for Kent and you can have the ones pictured. I'll take a look.
  13. Wife needs help finishing his bucket list AR92s

    I have two cutouts I had used as woofer seals on my 91's. I didn't like them and used the foam tape from Parts Express. If you want the cutouts you can have them - RAOK. You may need to do some trimming. They are made of craft foam that is (I think) 1/16" thick. Let me know and I will mail them to you.
  14. Unbelievable find, NOS

    I don't think I would have gone that high even with pictures of the speakers. That's a bit above the inflation calculator value (using 1982 and $1800 cost).
