Default What to do?....

So. I have a pair of Aurasound NS3-193-4A drivers laying around. Any ideas on how best to use these little terrors?

A ridiculously large horn cabinet for good LF reproduction. Fire it up, and then show people that its just a pair of 3"s...

I've moved this over the FR so maybe you'll get a better response.

Cornu spiral BLH (20 in x 3 in deep) will impress as well as a 0.40x scale mini Karlsonator are good choices.

If you're looking to extract the maximum bass extension of which the driver might be capable - Hoffman's Iron Law will always get in your way.

you know, pick any 2 of 3 ...

For maximum bas extention, probably Gregg the Geeks reflex box. I used mine in about 1.5 litre sealed.

24 in x 3.5in deep works better if you want deeper bass. It is a 3 in driver though so really should not go larger than that.
