I purchased 12 woofers for Ar3a , fit perfect worked perfect very satisfied. Delivery wa fast,well packaged. I subsequently discovered that the tweeters were dead so I also purchased 2 for the same Ar3a's. The work perfectly, well packed, fast delivery. I was not pleased to find however that the connections to the drivers was not the same as the originals. Not so much that the connected from the rear and required you to cut the opening for the terminals for clearance . they will not mount in the original diameter holes but need 2 notches cut 180 deg apart for the wire connections. Not a huge issue once the grill cloth is replaced.

Pleased with AR Woofer
My replacement AR woofer arrived promptly, was well packed, and performed as expected after installation. I was very pleased that Simply Speakers were able to provide an exact replacement for a 43-year-old AR speaker system.

I have not yet had a chance to install this woofer in my AR-3A Speakers yet, however I can say the quality looks excellent and shipping was super fast.

Thank you. Happy? That is the understatement of the year, from a land where understatement is an art form. They are just sensational. The depth and quality of the sound is astounding. Those speakers were purchased in New York in 1979. They have been in Accra, Ghana, Washington, Prague, Wellington, NZ and 4 houses in Australia. They knock the socks off my visitors.

Perfect fit and tonal match
This replacement woofer is an exact drop in and tightened the low end of the AR9 due to old woofers that we mechanically fatigued. For the lovers of this system (we are fanatics about the AR9), it is increasingly difficult to find replacement drivers that do not adversely change the overall design of this wonderful speaker system. Good service and delivery, would buy again.

These speakers worked as perfect replacement woofers for my AR9's, and sound perfect! The originals had disintegrated over time, so these were very welcome replacements to get the old AR9's back into perfect working condition!

Replaced old woofer whose cone had disintegrated, with the new AR 12 inch. This restored the performance of the unit to original specs. Solid base notes, and no bass from the speaker when there isn't any in the music.

Fast shipping, solid packing and a perfect replacement woofer. When the time comes for me to replace other drivers on my ARs, I'll be coming back. Thanks!
