john, are you aware of this link as an information resource? I believe a few guys who worked for AR are contributors.

I remember my AR2ax as being woefully lacking treble. The sound was muffled. I bought the speaker new and was disappointed.
Check my comment below. Did you turn the level controls all the way up which was actually the flat setting?
I remember playing around with the controls to try to get more treble without success. This experience led me to speakers that have no crossover and are time aligned.
curious, what speaker has no crossover and is time aligned?
Reference 3A Grand Veenas have a capacitor between the bass speakers and the midrange to prevent bass frequencies from interfering with the midrange and another between the midrange and the treble for the same purpose. The midrange and treble are set back for time alignment. The Reference 3A diCapos also. Mine are the older model where the Murata Supertweeter is slightly set back from the tweeter.
Dunlavys were also time aligned.
To me a crossover is designed to change the response of a speaker and not to merely diminish that response.
That's a crossover, a minimal one but a crossover. And the speaker may be time aligned; it's not obvious. However I recall hearing a version of it many years ago and liking it very much.
The face of the speaker is sloped back from the floor to the top.
We define crossovers differently.
