The 70's need re foaming. I took them out to send them out and find that they have different woofers. Both baskets are identical but the magnet assemblies are different. Also one is vented through a hole in the back of the magnet assembly. The other is notand has a porous dome making it front vented. The serial numbers are only 4 digits different and they look like original woofers...ie don't look like they've been out before looking at the screws. Unfortunately I don't know which woofer came out of which serial # because I didn't notice they were different till they were both out. I will not be an archaelogist or historian anytime soon!!!
I'll try to do pics tomorrow. I'm concerned that they will sound different. Will advise when they are refoamed.
The A-100's look to be an erly series because they have round basket dome tweeters whereas the brochure I have shows rectangular assmblies for the tweeters. Also the cabinets do not have the 2 1/2" pedestal base shown in the brochure and the cab bottoms don't have screw holes or glue remnants to indiscate there ever were bases.
I'll do pics tomorrow.. its too late now.
Appreciate input from anyone knowledgeable in these models.

On the right is a screen type dust cap and the venting takes place thru the dust cap out the front of the woofer.
They may sould a little different. However, during music passages that difference may be hard to detect.
