AR93 on stands
Posted 27 October 2006 - 03:53 PM
I've got an original pair of AR93's with the foam surrounds repaired.
I'm looking to see if any other improvements can be made.
One thing I was thinking of was putting them on stands.
Has anyone tried this?
Are there any recommendations on how high?

The issue of carpet and spikes is a bit different. When one has wall to wall carpeting, then spikes should be in order (no matter the speaker).

That's about 8 inches? Should be close enough, but you could try the "elevation by phonebooks" method to simulate what stands would do for you. If the 93 uses a cone tweeter (like the 94 does) it is much stronger on-axis than off, but if your listening position is, say, 10 feet away. your ears will be easily 'in the beam' even if the tweeter is 8 inches below them.
Back in the heyday of Stereo Review magazine their guy (Julian Hirsch?) used a test tone and a dB meter to determine how much the sound level dropped at a given angle off-axis. You can do the same; just be careful how much signal you feed the tweeter (there really isn't a lot of high frequency component in most music).

The AR93 only has a single pair of terminal posts (L&R).

In my normal listening position, the tweeter is about 200mm below my ears.

How many speaker terminals are there on the AR93? On the AR-3's and AR-2's we have three terminal posts (1,2, & T)
