Ahhh...large diameter woofer acoustic suspension... I know the AR's cost more to begin with, but the large two-way Advents sounded smoother, more dynamic and less polite to me than the 3a's did way back when. If you watch and wait I'll bet ya can find a working pair of the big Advents for about half the cost of your proposed redo. And better still you'll find somebody just itching for those AR cabinets. My 25+ year old big Advents are still in hard daily service with my ex-wife. They're on their second set of replacement woofers as the foams rot out too. Overall, if ya only listen to classical, yeah maybe the AR's are more refined. But if ya wanna rock, find the Advents. Enjoy!
