Default 3" Speakers [Reposted, due to server error]

Ok i posted this before but i got a server error message and the thread appeared empty. So i'm gonna post it again here.

I found a pair of Sony speaker which belonged to a TV, they're 3", they have awesome sound, they can sound pretty loud. The suspension is quite soft so i guess they can make good bass sound. The problem is that i don't have any enclosure schematics for such small speakers and i was wondering if anyone does, and if anyone knows if there's possible to have a good bass sound with such small speakers. I intend to use them with a computer (with an amp, of course that is).
Thanks in advance guys!

Without specs, designing an enclosure would be a problem. However, using my powers of heuristic reasoning, I have recently finished just such a project. I ripped out a pair of Samsung 3" drivers from an old pair of Creative CS36 unpowered desktop speakers and rigged them into 75mm PVC sewer pipe. I currently have them in a T-joint, with one foot of pipe on top, two feet below. Seal from the top and stuff with pillow stuffing. Running off NAD 3020i. Imaging is scary good, bass is not. Nice sounding for jazz, guitar, even some rock. Total cost around $5.

Yep. PVC TLs can be fun and give good results. A 3" driver wont make much bass in anything other than headphones.

Planet Dave has a nice little design on his site that may fill the void. It would probably have a better bass response than tubes, but not the imaging from the TLs that hernanstafe is referring to.

There's plans there too.


edit: Post a pic of your drivers, chances are he can identify them.
