Can you take a measurement and let me know the DC resistence of the TSW-810 tweeter?

The speakers have such a full sound and great imaging. They blow away everything in the house.When I first hooked them up after the refoam job they took several hours to break in, but once they broke in they blew the 90's out the window and my 90's are in mint condition. The highs are clear and maybe a little too bright, but you can cut the treble a little if you wish. The bass is solid and they use the same 12" woofers the infamous AR 9's use. I think they are some of AR's better work and I can believe the TSW stands for "This Shits Work". If you ever get a chance to get a pair of these jewels you won't regret it. After listening to the 910's for several hours then switching to the 90's I thought someone had put a hole in the 90's. They are both great speakers, but the 910's are on the top shelf in my opinion. Maybe these speakers didn't break any new grounds for AR, but they are clearly at the top of the heap and who says you have to break new ground to be good.

You guys are simply amazing! How do you remember all of this stuff?
Once again, thanks for the informative replies.

One of the reasons that the 810 and 910 probably used double mids and the 1” tweeter was increase their power handling. Large speakers such as those could logically be expected to be used in large rooms with big amps. Their double-woofer systems could already handle lots of power; with double mids and a 1” dome (instead of a 3/4" dome with its more delicate voice coil), the mids and highs could now better keep up with the woofers from a PH standpoint. Yes, it would have been more consistent, from a marketing standpoint, if all the TSW’s used the same dome, but logical, consistent marketing was never one of AR’s strong suits.
BTW, the stated upper-end frequency limits for the TSW tweeters (40kHz for the 3/4", 32kHz for the 1") have the ring of meaningless marketing blather to them. I'll go back and re-read both Stereo Review's and High Fidelity's test reports of the 910, but I don't recall either magazine saying anything out of the ordinary about the speaker's "32kHz" response. Pretty meaningless, in any event, to a 30-50 year-old male listener whose hearing hits the wall at 15kHz.

The 1¡± MB Quart titanium tweeter was better built, smoother sounding tweeter and more expensive compare to the 3/4¡± TSW-610 series titanium tweeter. It was made in West Germany around 1979 and custom order by AR with the special designed faceplate/acoustic lens by AR. The original MB Quart tweeter had very small faceplate with different acoustic lens to diffuse the sharp sounding characteristic of the titanium dome. This tweeter can crossover at 2800Hz in the two way design. It has wider range and higher power handling but don¡¯t forget the TSW-910 speakers will suck a lot of juice out of your amp when play loudly. So if your amp is not up to the challenge then both tweeters may turn silent forever while you are showing off to your friends of how loud your reference AR speakers will play during the Demo section!

Would you by any chance happen to know the difference between the 1" and the 3/4" titanium dome tweeter used in the balance of the TSW line?
I noticed that the xover frequency of the 1" drops to 4,000Hz from the 5,000Hz of the 3/4". Is this becasue the 1" has a wider range of frequency response?
PS: just wondering because I have the 3/4" in my TSW 610's
