I was looking on craigs list and saw a nice KLH 18 FM tuner. My weekness is for vintage tuners because the manufactures today don't make quality tunes anymore. The owner writes back that the tuner is $50 and I say it's a deal. I go to pick up the tuner on Saturday morning and see the people are also moving and geating rid of much stuff. They are the original owners and tuner also has the original box and manual and looks new out of the box.
I ask the big question what else are you getting rid of. She says we have some old Ar speakers. I tell my story about having the less expensive Ar 2ax speakers in my youth. She is trying to get rid of the Ar 3a speakers and shows them to me. They look new out of the box also. The grills are still attached to the speakers with no fading, and no scrathes on the wood. She even has the original cute speaker stands. I take them off her hands for $200.
I get home and one speaker sounds bad. I pry off the grill cloth and see the foam on the woffer is not attached to the speaker base but attched well to the speaker cone. I apply some glue and weights to the foam rim, wait 5 hours for it to set up and hook it up. It plays really nice. The sound is very involving.
Question: The reostates in the back of the speaker for adjusting the mid and hi and very noisy. Does any one know where to replace them? Or should I replace them?
Does any one have any expience with these old speakers?
Thanks for any help.
