    So I've been in the planning stages of making some small speakers using just an AV3 speaker (I want it to be my first speaker building project just to break me into things...you know, start small), but I've just been informed by Adire Audio that they are discontinuing the AV3s. They are currently looking into a replacement. Meanwhile, are there any affordable full range 3" mid-woofers that would be a good replacement? What are my options?

    Well, that sucks about the discontinuing of the av3s. I wanted to make some cheap surrounds with them. You could take a look at http://www.nuera-acoustic.ca/preorder.php. You can still pick something up in the preorder stage.

    Wait a minute. Are you getting the kits mixed up? AV3 is made by GR-Research. I just contacted Danny Richie who said the AV line will continue.

    Adire Audio makes 281Kit, H10.1 and numerous other kits but not the AV3. What is confusing is that their owner is also called Dan. But one is Dan. The other is Danny. Dang... now I have the song tomatoe or tomaTO stuck in my head.

    Good luck,

    Al

    The AV3 is a small full range driver that Adire carries and is also the name of a speaker from GR Research. A bit confusing but two completely different items. [​IMG]
    I'd look at the Tang Band drivers for a nice driver at about the same price range.
