In Topic: AR-4x price ?

25 March 2015 - 07:03 PM

I think it's 'a rising tide lifts all boats' kind of thing. AR3 prices started to soar, then AR1 prices blew past those,

and all the original models started to increase in price. Even the AR2 is increasing. Just check the auction

(asking) prices: $520 (reduced) for AR2as? A pair of 2axs went for $495 last week.

I don't know how bad your stain is, but... Oxalic acid in crystal form is what I used on these.

It also comes as an ingredient in deck cleaner, and it's easier to get in this form.

I still see sought-after speakers reasonably priced at my favorite thrift stores.

I would call it a consistent trickle. The first pair I found 20 years ago- AR2s-

started me in this whole vintage speaker thing.


These are purchases in the last 6 months.

2ax: $50

2a: $30

Old/original Large Advent: $35


They all needed some level of work, but it's easy to justify when starting

this inexpensively.

Thank you!


I've got caps and will order surrounds.


I have referred to that link before, but got confused, obviously. The late production shift in woofers is mentioned.

The cabinet does not look like the NLA.


How much fiberglass do these need?
