Question about Acoustic Research AR1 Speaker

Acoustic Research AR1 HiRes subwoofer amplifier

When Recoton owned Acoustic Research they used a amp based on Sunfire technology to power the subwoofer. No one seems willing or able to effect repairs on them. Is there anyone, anywhere, that I go to for support on these amps? If not, is there a replacement solution available?

What is the problem with your device?
Now a days most service techs do not do a level repair but swap assemblies that is why you are not getting much help.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

WHY DOES MY ACOUSTIC RESEARCH AR3 TOWER SPEAKER BLOWS INTERNAL FUSE..FIX?


Check to see who the manufacturer is. The Acoustic Research name was sold a couple of times. I think yours may be Recoton. If so, you may be able to get some help from them.

I just got a Acoustic research S108 PS subwoofer from a friend. No instruction manual. I'm wondering how to connect this to my stereo system. I have an old JVC amp with a out RCA jack marked SUBWOOFER, but...


What makes you feel that isn't right?

You can't just slap a sub onto a receiver and have it work optimally (if at all). The receiver must typically be configured to know it has a sub, then bass managment and sharing decisions must be made, then crossover frequency choices and levels adjusted to match it all up.

All self-powered amps work that way.

Have you looked at the manual for your JVC?

Acoustic Research AR-1 Qusetion- LFE Input and Output functions??


using the LFE input will give you cleaner less distorted bass. You must have a sub out on your receiver or pre-amp. it will give you greater control over the bass output of your system. If you only have one sub-out on your receiver simpley run a 10ft rca from the sub-out of reciever to the rca input of either speaker than use the rca out of 1st speaker to the rca input of second speaker. check to see if you have control of the level of your sub-out on your reciever. adjust the 30hz boost on rear of speakers. now you will have bass that most people only dream of having.

AR1 Subwoofer Keeps Blowing the 5 Amp Fuse


Well, so far so good. I reinstalled the newly repaired amp and fired it up and so far, so good. Ran it through about an hour of fairly intense break-in tracks and then ran it through about 2 dozen power up and down cycles to try to get it to fail (better now than a month from now and have to fight them on backing it up).

Acoustic Research ARS115PS Subwoofer, No Sound


I have the same problem with the smaller AR 112PS speaker and since Acoustic Research went out of business, I too have been looking for a solution. I may have found an alternative to throwing away this really nice speaker. I found a company on the web that appears to sell an amp that may fit nicely into this speaker enclosure for $99.00. Check it out...
