Question about Acoustic Research PL900SAT Speaker

1 Answer

Speaker replacement I need to replace the midrange/drivers in an old pair of AR SAT660's. The speakers themselves are stamped "AR 1210053-0A / 653TNI. I've checked with the AR website and cannot locate an exact match. Is there a substitute 4" mid I can use with the same operating specs, and a location to obtain same ?

    Are you replacing these because of deteriorating foam? If so, you can get repair kits to replace the foam, and its fairly easy to do. I have repaired many speakers over the last 15 years including some Acoustic Research.

Fix a torn speaker cone?


If it is a woofer, you would probably fix it quite easy. If the speaker driver is used for both bass and midrange, you have a problem.
Fixing a speaker cone is depending on the material. If it is paper cone, it is very easy by using paper that you glue with wood glue (White water based glue) on to the cones rear side (for estetic reasons).
A midrange or bass/midrange driver is operating in frequencies where the cone starts to break up. Not torn apart, but the break up frequency is the frequency where the inner and outer part of the cone not longer follow each other in the same direction. These properties of a cone determine the sound of the speaker which is that type of speaker drivers "identity". Messing that identity up, you end up with a speaker that does not sound as the original one.
Remember that cross over network used to split up frequency ranges, not only are lowpass, bandpass, and highpass filter, but they also filter irregularities where the speaker driver is not longer providing a linear frequency response (Its characteristic sound).

If the cone is polypropylene, there isn't much glue that bite on that material.

How To Bi-Amp And Bi-Wire Speakers!


What is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but separately connecting that power source to a woofer and a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers) and connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier to a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

How do I bi-wire?
Your speaker must have two separate positive and negative connections (one set for the woofer and one set for the midrange/tweeter). Connect one wire between the positive terminal on the amplifier/receiver the positive terminal on the speaker. Connect the other wire from the negative terminal on the amplifier/receiver to the corresponding negative terminal on the speaker. Remove the jumper straps connecting the two sets of speaker inputs. Repeat this process for the second set of terminals on the speaker, connecting them to the same positive and negative terminals on the receiver/amplifier. Repeat the steps for each speaker you wish to Bi-Wire, connecting them to the appropriate terminals on your receiver/amplifier.

How do I bi-amp?
Bi-amping is similar to bi-wiring, but involves separate amplifiers: one for the woofer and one for the midrange/tweeter. Passive bi-amping involves a direct hookup between each amplifier and the speaker terminals. True bi-amping involves hooking the preamp to an electronic crossover that replaces the passive crossover network in the speaker. The active crossover then connects to multiple power amplifiers.

Hi,I have a floor standing speakers and the mid speaker on one of them doesn't work ,do I replace it with any same size speaker for it to work or does it have to be a certain one?k


There are hundreds of midrange speaker drivers on the market. If you like the sound of your system, best to get the same one that was there originally. I would try the manufacturer first, and if they can't help you, join

http://diyaudio.com/

and ask for help there. These are folks that will take time to look at a picture of your dead driver, and help you find a replacement.

Midrange and tweeter driver not hit the the high range.


Are u sure u haven't messed up with the polarity of the speakers while rewiring the speakers? If all is ok and only u find that the speakers are not so vibrant as the other there cud be a possibility that the coil has shifted inside the magnet and is either scratching or not aligned. Also hav a look at the crossover

I have a 400 watt speaker and the board in not working and the the speakers and everything else is working good but i think that it the board inside the speaker.


the board that you are talking about is the crossover, does any of the speaker work the woofer or tweeter or midrange drivers? If the woofer does not work then take out the woofer and take the wires that attach to the speaker on the back and hook them directly to the speaker that you took out if it plays you need to replace the crossover in the speaker, this should be easy, just call the company that makes the speaker and order a new crossover, you can do this also with the speaker if there is no sound when you hook it up direct.

Midrange faulty


I've had the same problem/s. A manufacturing fault with the original midrange drivers of all of my Mission 780's and 782 speakers. If you contact Mission through their website they will supply an updated style driver for about £45, I would recommend buying 2 because the other one will fail eventually, if like me you use them every day. All four failed within two years of each other.
