Fun AR17 fix up

Speakers | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - audiokarma.org
I stumbled on a pair of these a couple weeks ago and am now having a blast getting them back in shape. In general, I love the winter months when I can strip old, rotted foam off drivers and put new ones on, then plug the speakers in and see how they sound. These appear to be in super condition and I can't wait till tomorrow to give them a listen. Look at how big the magnet is on the 8 inch woofers! I guess these were the next generation of AR4's....

I know it's not the best pic, but I wonder about this capacitor. I'm going one step at a time with these speakers. I know of the guys here that swear by putting new caps in no matter what, but I also know from experience that sometimes the results are not exemplary. Anyone recognize this particular model?
