Refurbishing a Set of AR-2ax Speakers

In mid June 2020, I rebooted my search of the classic AR-2ax speakers that I've been wanting for several years now. I managed to find a set from someone on eBay who communicated their story to me: the nice man had purchased them in the early 1970s in Okinawa, Japan, used them for several years, then put them in storage in 1980. They haven't seen the light of day until now and you can read about my little adventure in bringing these beauties back into working order (complete with photos and a video below.)
