Acoustic Research AR18s - Replacement woofer?

Discussion in 'DIY Speakers and Subwoofers' started by IsaacAunkst, Aug 2, 2017.

  1. I recently found a set of AR18s speakers at a garage sale in pretty good condition. Getting home with them it became obvious that someone had replaced the original woofers with some manner of no-name poly cone woofers of equivalent diameter. They sound pretty good as is, but I would much rather return to factory, or install a replacement woofer that is known to be a good replacement for the factory set.

    Any recommendations for replacement woofers in a AR18s running the factory original crossover?
    Alternatively, I could modify the crossover, but I don't want to get away from the "minimal crossover" design these speakers are known for.

    Thanks. Any leads would be appreciated.AR18s.jpg
