    Hi Stimpy. You got a winner in the 58s. Hope you enjoy them! Yea, i had a broken terminal on one cab, so i capped the 91 boards..........better connectors. Nothing wrong with 58 board, just easier for me

    Nope, didnt test caps. Every time i use those dayton npe......great results. I cant say yhat for others, and mh worst experience was ERSE yellow turds. Scratch my ear drum! Watco, home depot. David, your going to love those ar9s.

    Ahhhh.....yes... 58 is a excellent speaker. Deep lows, good bass output, clear mids(a touch strong at times), and a crazy great tweeter. Simple crossover that does it all well fir a 3 way. Why didnt they produce more? Its not as smooth as the ar9, nor as detailed, but it approaches ar3a levels in greatness. It doesnt have the smoothness of a 3a(mine at least), however the lows are almost the same with possibly more bass output. The tweeter Blows away the 3a even with a hivi. No comparison. While analizing this speaker, i pulled over the ar78ls. Smoother on mids, almost as low, less tweeter output and highness(crispness and high freq). 78 is super smooth and mellow. Outdtanding specimen of a 12 inch AR. Also great! Room placement is key for me. I found these sounded best on floor in corner. All dayton NPE on 91 board, since it gives me switches. Thanks to my brother for that! I LIKE THE 91! The question is ....why did AR use that fiberglass ring in front of the mids back in the 60S and 70s? Calm the mid?? The ar9 is far smoother, but thats a diff animal. Enjoy...i worked hard on these, and they are great.

    Hi Pete Im listening to them right now. Bass? Has it. Yes it does. Placement is the magic. Im comparing to the 58s right now. 58s is surprising me. A touch deeper, more bass output from 58s, but its not crazy different. I need to learn more about "Q", but these 3 ways are real good. Will they replace my ar9? No. 3a has magic in the midrange.....unsure if its the fiberglass ring on top of the dome, as my brother thinks, or the circuit....but the 3a has a great midrange. The 58 doesnt have that. But the 58 has a totally superior tweeter. Best tweeter ive heard. Im lucky to have experienced all these models. I did work hard fixing them all.

    Picked up some more AR speakers

    Yea, i hear ya. I went through a few that my brother, the Carver expert got me. 1.0, not for me, 1.5 was ok, 500 was pretty, but the 4.0 is superior. Tfm 42 is my favorite. Big balls and smoooth sound. I own 2 kenwood m2a amps, and they sound great,and cheap. 1 draw back ...well 2......heat and power consumption.....carver kicks its ass on that. Tfm 42 made over 550 watts @4 ohms on my brothers test set up. Thats a straight load, not peak ability. The part i like.....its smooooth not forward in mids and great bass. The kenwood makes 340@ 4ohms. Not bad. Great sound too. Never tried emotiva. Enjoy!!!!!

    Owner lost 1 woofer.lol. no badges. Today i pulled the stock crossovers out. Recapped a AR91 crossover, all dayton npe caps. Glued in. Pulled totally smooshed midrange out with industrial carton tape. Notice wood grill,not plastic. 2 coats of watco oil. Simple speaker. Slapped in ar9 woofers. Going for a test ride in 8 hours after glue dries.

    I use Dayton npe exclusively anymore Mez. They offer the smoothest sound with excellent clarity and the price is very low Ive tried others, in poly, and none are as good. Erse caps ,the yellow ones were the worst. Horrible to my ears. Good luck with your ar9. I love mine

    Great idea on the 9s. They go LOW....but placement is important. Carver power to them? Enjoy.

    Im waiting as well. Focusing on what arsurround said, umr cap. The 9's are truely the best i have, but the 3 way has its strong points as well. You will love the ar9, if you have the room for it. Do you own a 3a? For comparison sake?

    Ligs, That was a loaded question. Yes it's perceptible. Leads me to next question on how stuffing effects Q? The amount and the material chosen. I can say the dispersion and warmth of these are excellent, and they are extremely clear, all they need is a little more bass output. My measuremedy of about 4000ci vs 5000ci of cabinet on ar78 vs ar3a.....shows more than 20%more cabinet size on ar3a.
