    I need to replace the subwoofer in my AR1. It's the 15" side firing type with the Sunfire power amp and I'm not sure how to take it out. Any help would be appreciated.

    Chuck,
    The AR7's 9's 5's and 1's are all built roughly the same.
    To remove the 15" Sub from your AR1 you need to remove the
    cloth grill. It is a little tricky to get that grill off
    but it is meant to be removeable. You need to push straight
    down on the grill (from the top) and it will bow enough so
    that the tabs will release and you should be able to pull
    it off.
    Once it is off you just need an allen key to remove the
    allen headed wood screws around the sub woofer basket.
    Once it is removed from the enclosure call AR and get a
    Return Authorization if they require one or email them from
    thier web site ( www.acoustic-research.com) they should
    replace the sub no questions asked.
