  1. AR-90 In Scituate, MA

    Not a bad ride for me BUT I have a pair (which really means nothing) AND I'm running out of room. Great speaker.
  2. Driving these AR3a speakers

    Thread title should be "Releasing the Magic Smoke" <sorry, couldn't resist>
  3. Not with AR speakers but back in college with my first pair of Bose 901_II. I had a Nikko STA-8080 receiver (IIRC was 45wpc). It would clip so bad with volume the amp would actually shutdown (no sound) and then slam back on. Needless to say it didn't last long. THAT was my learning experience.
  4. AR 3a's in the house...outstanding pair.

    Freeckin' AWESOME !!!!!
  5. Picked up some more AR speakers

    Luigi, thanks for the drawings. Unfortunately I have no means of weighing the polyfiber. I have a bathroom scale - not sensitive enough and a jewelers scale 0 to 100 grams and its small.

    Does the PE NPE resemble either of the other two (Jantzen/MDL or Bennic) ?

    Harry, that is the correct LMR driver for the 9 and 90. Does it have a square or round magnet? On my 9's one has a square magnet and the other is round.

    Other than the cabinets that need some work I too have decided to use NPE. I will use Mundorf ECaps on the smaller values and bypass with a Vishay 1837 cap. The larger will be Bennic or P.E. I'm more excited about the 10pi. I want to try them with my tube amp in place of the AR91 (which have polypro caps - But had to bypass the 2 series caps). Attached pics from the internet.

    Some have characterized the (yellow) mylar/polyester caps as being harsh. I have some ERSE in the drawer but never tried them.
