Quickie FaitalPRO 3 vs. Aurasound NS3 in 1.8 liter sized enclosure

Just a quickie, unscientific DIY test I did to compare low end response between the two 3" speakers.
Just knowledge sharing here. No response requested. :cool:

Enclosure size:
  • .065 cu.ft. / 1.85 liter sealed.
Nicely enough, the mounting hole patterns match up between the two speakers.

Radio Shack digital SPL meter about 3" / 90 degrees from center of speaker cone.
Lepai 2024 connected to my computer set at volume 12.
Identical volume/gain for both tests was used and tests were back-to-back.
This is NOT a maximum SPL test nor does it have anything to do with output capabilities. It's just a quick comparison of two speakers in an identical sized enclosure to compare low end response. The FaitalPRO was NOT expected to get as low as the NS3 nor is it designed to do so. I just wanted to see for myself the differences. :)

FaitalPRO 3FE25
---------
60 hz = 93 dB
80 hz = 96 dB
100 hz = 95 dB
120 hz = 96 dB
160 hz = 101 dB
200 hz = 101 dB

Aurasound NS3
---------
60 hz = 93 dB
80 hz = 95 dB
100 hz = 94 dB
120 hz = 95 dB
160 hz = 98 dB
