AR 18 Bookshelf Speakers


AR 18 Bookshelf Speakers

The much sought after Acoustic Research 18B bookshelf speakers.

Successors to the AR7 & AR18. Still with the famous AR cone tweeter but this model includes ferrofuild and protective mesh covers.

If you’re after great sounding narrow profile bookshelf speakers – you can’t go past the AR 18.

All original drivers – Bass drivers recently re-foamed at Axent audio. The cabinets are in great order.

These are very nice speakers and will give many years of listening pleasure
