AR3a Tweeters
Brilliant tweeters. I've finally completed the refurbishment of my AR 3a speakers with the OEM dome Tweeters. I'd previously used the re-foam kit from Simply Speakers on the Woofers. The midrange are original untouched. I also built a new set of crossovers - to get rid of the noisy switch mechanism and I replaced all the components. I'm extremely pleased with the result. Clear, well integrated sound and a joy to listen to. I've found the best placement is to put the speakers on their sides (as shown in the original brochures). I believe you get a more consistent sound with that alignment. I found the midrange tended to dominate the sound when the speakers are positioned upright. Great to have these 60's speakers singing again.

One of my original tweeters was damaged, so I replaced both to make sure the performance matched. The tweeters worked perfectly and provided (as close as my ears could compare) the sound of the original units. The mounting holes matched perfectly, though I did have to modify the cabinets, as the original units have front facing connections and the replacements had connections on the rear. I also installed new foam surrounds on the woofers, midrange and tweeter pots, cross-over capacitors, and fiberglass insulation. The restoration project was a total success!

ar 3a tweeter re[;acement
To be able to find a "bolt in" tweeter replacement for a 40 year old speaker was great. The sound is like the original. The mounting had 2 complications: The rear connecting lugs ( as opposed to the original front mount) necessitated a relief cut in the face of the cabinet in 2 places corresponding to the lug location so the tweeter would actually fit. A hole had to be drilled in the front of the cabinet to run wires to connect to the front connecting block.I used a common hole for the mid range drivers wires, filled with hot glue and taped for a more or less original appearance.

Mr
Finally I have the sound I have been missing for the last couple of years since original tweeters failed (I have had them since new 1976). With the exchange rate and postage my delivered cost was almost $350 AU for the pair, about half the original cost of the speakers in 1976, and worth every cent. Thank you Simply Speakers for my further enjoyment of these incredible speakers for years to come. Delivery was prompt, packaging good and overall a good experience with your company, thank you.
