Please examine pictures carefully these speakers are fabulous! Technically the speakers sound great as they should and will operate reliably for years to come. The Acoustic Research AR-5 from 1969 is often named to be one of the greatest vintage speakers available at an affordable cost. The AR-5 is a three way speaker using a 10″ woofer, a 1,5″ dome midrange and a 0.75 dome tweeter. The AR5 features the intricate and well-designed crossover network of the AR3a and a similar midrange driver. Therefore, AR-5s have a detailed mid and high response and at the same time deep bass, less deep than the AR-3, but with more “soul” than the AR-2ax. According to audiokarma┬┤s forum AR5 was meant for those people who thought the AR3a was a little too bass heavy. It’s midrange drivers and tweeters were basically the same as the ones of the AR3a, which was clearly superior to the 2ax. The reason for the existence of the AR5 was to give people an alternative between the AR2ax and the AR3a.
