Default Aurasound 3 & 4" on sale at Madisound

https://www.madisound.com/store/specials.php

The NS3-193s are a decent price, but what I'm really curious about is whether anyone has built anything worthwhile with the cheap ones - the NS3-194s and the NS4s. Haven't found anything good on Google.

That one looks interesting. A couple do. At under $5 each i bet they sound good enough. Thanks for posting the link.

I agree Chrisb... that driver looks great, especially from behind!

The NS4-194-8A look pretty good. The frequency response looks too perfect and is probably hella-smoothed, but for this price, I might try a couple.

how do the 193, 194, the hivi b3s and any other super cheap (say below 15-20 bucks) drivers compare. i could go for some for computer speakers. any suggested good super cheap woofers or tweeters to pair with these.

Hi,
Some woofers have been added to the sales page.

Godzilla and IG81, what designs are you considering for the NS4-194-8A. A BIB perhaps?

no bib, sib just looking for computer speakers, something good to replace my altec lansing mx5021. this one gives tons of bass and pretty much nothing else. they dont let us audition computer speakers here before purchasing and i ended up with this lousy set somehow

Did not consider anything that that moment, mostly I would have measured them and figured out what to do with'em, but would not have been in a hurry to do so. Perhaps could try them in the K5 Karlson I'm currently building. Not sure I'll be getting any, shipping is kinda expensive versus the item price.

doors666,

How about doing something with the NS3-193, which is a well-regarded driver? Some ideas:

IG81,
Yeah, shipping is a killer on most US "deals".
