Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: AR-2a Question

Could the potentiometer positions have changed in the meantime? that's a wild guess on my part but possible.

Also it's a good idea to set the potentiometers for the mid and treble at full on. The mid point, usually thought of as flat was set below the woofer level to ameliorate what AR thought was poor treble on recordings. Besides you will only be affecting response above 2 kHz. That's where the dual 5" 'mid ranges' rolled in. Today that's often the crossover point for a 1" dome tweeter. And, of course, the mid ranges on the AR-2a were the tweeters on the AR-2. The dome driver is more a super tweeter.
