I had my speakers re-foamed by a shop ≈10 years ago so I don't know what was there originally. I had thought that AR was big on sealing their enclosures...

Thanks all!
The best source of information for Acoustic Research loudspeakers is :
Home Page | The Classic Speaker Pages
Some sort of roofing tar material was and still is used to glue and seal speakers in place. A cheap solution, and NOT convenient for frequent rebuilds. I don't know the brand name used, but it melts at quite low temperature.

These days a lot of firms use a soft plastic gasket to seal against air leaks. Quite important with closed box. Air leaks produce a curious shudder on bass cones, but there are a variety of plumbing materials or cardboard that would do the job quite adequately IMO. I increasingly get rubbery stuff from builders merchants.

FWIW, the schematic I came up with was simply untangling the confusing AR filter schematic. AFAIK, it is an accurate electrical representation of the crossover in a form the modern eye can follow. Just Topology really.
