II spent some time digging through radioshackcatalogs.com and managed to put together some of the old ads.

I've also posted them on my own site: www.aphenos.net/av.htm

Ken,

Great pictures from the old catalogs.

Very nice work on your model listings.

A number of small errors, however. For example, you have the old and new 2ax as having the same tweeter and x-over specs. The old 2ax had x-overs of 2000 and 7500 and a tweeter 1 3/8" (1.375") diameter. There are a number of these small mistakes.

It's daunting task, to be sure, but most of the original brochures are on the site and the accurate specs are contained therein.

I know virtually all the specs by memory through and including the AR Verticals (9, 90, 91, 92), as does Tom T. I have literature for all the models after that through the Ken Kantor's 303 etc. series of 1995. If there are any AR specs you can't find in the lit that's already on site, I'm sure that Tom or I can dig it out for you.

Again, great work!


Steve F.

Thank you for the comments. I cleaned up a few discrepancies. The AR-1 is listed with a crossover of 1000 and 1800 hz in different places, for instance.

I'll go back through the literature as time permits.
