Hi all, new member here just got my first ever pair of AR speakers! They were given to me by a family friend who is elderly, her husband passed on and her sons were going to throw these away, she kindly stopped them and asked me if i wanted them, she really wanted to pass them on as her husband was a music lover. So i have started to restore them but have a few questions, this seems like the best place to get good advice! One of my tweeters seems to have had a hard life and needs replacing, the other one is like new and working well. The bad tweeter does produce sound but sounds dull. You'll see in the images i used a dayton dats v2 to measure and test the drivers. Can i find a suitable replacement? Maybe find a second hand tweeter from this model or a 4ax? I believe this had the same tweeter? I have also seen this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/193009544680?ul_noapp=true could this be a suitable replacement? I also have a pair of ar 18b tweeters, thought i could use these for the moment until i source a suitable replacement. Thoughts on the potentiometers and old sprague capacitor? From what i've read the pots can be cleaned up if not to oxidized but also a straight new l-pad 8 ohm replacement is also fine.
