  1. Hi guys, I opened a pair of 2ax and 1 has a short, square magnet and the other a tall round one. Which is the best and why? Thanks!
  2. I've just uploaded some AR speaker reviews from High Fidelity magazine to my server. You can access them here: https://archive.mgm51.com/library/AcousticResearch/
  3. Now that I've replaced my mid's. I'm wondering if there's a definitive way to establish correct polarity. Not only for the mid's but tweet's as well....Might as well be sure??
  4. Finally got around to redoping my Ar2ax. Next the pots. Sure it'll be a bit more difficult. Anyone have any pointers for me before I dive in? Ones that are not included in these instructional forums?
  5. Nice looking pair of AR 2ax speakers showed up on CL - Sherborn, MA for $195.
  6. Some background: I bought pairs of AR3a, AR2ax, AR4a, and AR 58BX when they were on store shelves and moved them from house to house, over the years. I still have them all. About 5 years ago, I pulled the AR2ax and AR4a's out of their place in the attic to use as surround speakers. Of course, I found foam rot. Not knowing of their "classic" status, I replaced the bass drivers with equivalent size drivers from Ed (and threw away the old drivers). Both pair were bought in unfinished pine, and have been repainted at least twice and the grill cloth was replaced with black grill cloth. Have I destroyed the "value" of these speakers and they are now in their highest and best use?
  7. Hi everybody, My father recently got hold of a pair of AR2ax with woofers in need of re-foam. The mysterious thing is that although the drivers look original (at least to me) the cones look like they have a flat edge and not an angled one! All the re-foaming kits I have seen for the AR 10" woofers seem to be targeted at angled cone edges, and I was told that AR never made woofers for the AR2ax with a flat edge! Both woofers look identical in all respects: basket, magnet, cone material and shape, and dust cap. The basket looks like stamped steel, and one of them has a stamp on the magnet saying "Feb 3 1972". They both have exactly the same paper cone with a 2-1/4" felt dust cap. Did somebody re-cone both woofers with the wrong cones at some point? (a clue may be a sticker on both woofers reading: "Stuart Elec 1-5-88 UPS" - or maybe URS instead of UPS). I attach pictures with the hope that somebody will be able to shed some light on this mystery. Thanks in advance! Ben P.S. I have been reading the posts on this forum for quite a while now, but this is my first post. I am always amazed at the amount of great advice and knowledge on this forum - it is very educational!
