  2. @lance G Thx Lance! It all worked out fine, this speaker sounds superb now! Only thing left is to replicate the process on the other speaker and we are back in business.
  3. Hello, I know this is an old thread, but do you still sell the grill badges for the AR 2ax. The a and the large AR 2ax. If not, can you direct me to a possible source. Many thanks, Bill
  4. "Have everything connected now. About to close this one up for a test run". Good luck !!!!!
  5. Today
  6. Plus: Managed to score a Acoustic Research A-07 amplifier. After an overhaul i think these two will mate quite well. In my small friendgroup everyone knows that i love AR, and everything they encounter regarding AR they will send my way. Lovely isn't it? Friends that make you buy more audio gear.
  7. Thx. @Aadams I wasn't sure. Have everything connected now. About to close this one up for a test run.
  8. I get mine from Rick Cobb whos sells on ebay as looneytune2001 or you can contact him directly at rcobb@tampabay.rr.com
  9. Welcome Mustbrad to the CSP forums. Your AR 38S speakers use the 200040-0 woofers. These are mine. They pop up on the auction site from time to time. You may have to refoam them. Hers a pair I refoamed for my AR48S speakers. Same woofer used in both models. Notice the inter foam lip is glued to the back of the cones. A bit different than other AR 10 in woofers. They are some really great sounding 2 way speakers. Much like the AR18S speaker except for larger enclosures and woofers. The Rat Shack woofers you currently have probably sound pretty good, but to hear them as AR 38S's you will need the 200040-0 woofers. If you are patient enough they will turn up.

  11. Resto guide shows woofer coil to middle (2) post and the other to the T post.

    AR 38s

    You'll just be replacing one wrong set of woofers with another wrong set of woofers. If anything, the JBLs might actually be a worse wrong pick than the Optimus. At least the Optimus was another sealed box and not a bass reflex like JBLs.
  13. Back at it again. Wired up the mid lpad as per restoration guide, but i am running against a wall here. I don't know where to connect the wires coming from the coils... 😕 Maybe the pictures provide some clarity for you guys.

    Why so rare?

    Welcome Greg Wow. I didn't know they made koa stands. Nicer IMHO than the lucite ones. Are you in Italy? If you're in the US I imagine shipping was very costly. Kent
  15. This is good. 1 kit per speaker https://www.speakerworks.com/11-Inch-Angled-Speaker-Repair-Kit-p/swk11a.htm
  16. https://www.parts-express.com/speaker-surround-re-foam-repair-kit-for-11-ar-ar-3---ar-3a-woofer--260-972 This is a good one.
  17. Good evening. Tonight one of my ar3a improved woofer foam decided it had had enough (crumbled to pieces). After buying these speakers 6 months ago I originally refoamed one of the woofers with a cheap locally sourced kit which was way to stiff, just to check the speakers worked ok. As the speakers Ara I keeper, I'm looking to refoam both woofers with the correct size and compliance foam. What is the general consensus on good refoam kits? I was looking at vintage ar, but fleabay says they are out of the office untill the 18th of march.... Please forgive me if this is posted elsewhere, but I couldn't find this information with a "best ar3a refoam kit" search. Regards Matteo Tirinnanzi PS I have taken my JBL l40s out of the garage while I refoam the ar3a, but I have to say that for the money they are a really good speaker. Yes the bass is a little woolly and doesn't extend down as far as the ar3a...but I can make do for a month is so....
  18. Thx Aadams. I will be leaving the third post out of the equation. The standard wiring in the restoration guide doesnt mention any difference in wiring regarding the lpads. I will be preparing the mid lpad shortly. It's dinner time here in NLD and my daughter is screaming for pancakes. So i guess duty calls. Brb

  20. Not absolutely necessary but if you must troubleshoot later it will be a standard wiring configuration that will not in itself be an obstacle if you need help.
  21. The middle post? As in the middle cable terminal? I don't really need that i think...
  22. Looks good. It might be simpler later if you re-install the middle post before you get the lpads permanently positioned.
  23. As requested, wide angle picture. Thanks for your support @Aadams
  24. The tweeter lpad appears correct. A wider angle image showing the caps would be good.
  25. Today, i finally managed to pick up the project. I've been very busy lately with no time to tinker around. So.. Progress. I prepared the L-pad for the tweeter in one speaker. It's a bit messy, but i know exactly what is what. Just wanted to check with one of the guru's here, is the way that i wired up the lpad correct?
  26. Original 1 owner Acoustic Research Model AR303 aka AR3 in mint condition Cherry cabinets are near perfect and the grills are flawless. All the drivers are working properly and sound amazing! Also included in the sale is all the original paper work and owners manuals. Make a fair offer. $800 located in New York can meet half way or deliver.
  27. Hallo, dit forum is voornamelijk op gezet voor Amerikaanse Acoustic Research luidsprekers. Ik denk dat de luidsprekers die jij hebt een speciaal voor Snyder Hifi geproduceerde luidspreker is. Gezien de gelimiteerde oplage en het gebrek aan informatie. Groetjes, Ben
  28. I recently found a set of AR 38s with a replacement Optimus 100 woofers installed, the boxes and grill are quite nice I was thinking of replacing the Tandy Brand woofers with a set of JBL 125A woofers that I salvaged. Is this Ok to do, will it work, are they similar? Any help is appreciated.
