Default CLEANUP! (54) AR S1 4.5" treated paper cone woofers

I have several boxes of brand new (old stock) Acoustic Research 4.5" mid-bass drivers/woofers that were used on the AR S1 or "Status 1" compact bookshelf speaker. The S1 was a very compact design with a 1" silk dome tweeter. The box was ported. I don't have a crossover schematic handy, but I can probably get one if you wanted to recreate the S1.

I have too many projects and this one's never gonna happen.

$250 for all 54 woofers + shipping.

Line array?
Restaurant?
ipod docks?
Coleman cooler radio?

Tons of potential projects.

OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED!! PLEASE DON'T BE SHY.
NO TRADES PLEASE. CASH/PAYPAL/GIFT CARDS, ETC...

(Incidentally, I have about 5 of these same tweeters too. )

I'll see what I can do about getting some measurements for you. I don't have test equipment set up right now because of some house renovations.

Thanks, but turns out Madisound is having a sale on Aurasound NS3's, so I'd go with those, if I even pursue the project.

Curious if you have a way of measuring xmax though.

The only thing I can think of is to use a dial indicator to measure displacement vs. input current.

I don't have any thing that can do that. When I get DATS set up (getting a new laptop in a few days with DATS and LEAP5), then I can do more thorough testing.


I should let you know, I am resto-modding a pair of Mirage OM-5 towers that had the midranges blown out. I am using these drivers as replacements for the mids since they OEM mids are unobtanium. They sound fantastic in that application. Literally plug and play.


Also, there are now 48 woofers left.
