    This would be a great option for me because of the 8 ohm load, but I am haunted by a post from Brian Bunge about how great the AV1+'s are. Primary concern is music clarity and will use a sub regardless, so I know the AV1+ would be great, but if the new AV3 is as accurate then it is probably a better solution for my HK amp. I wonder if Danny has a pair built in Iowa Park (2 1/2 hour drive for me)?

    Cody, I've got the parts from Danny and I've got the MDF all cut and stacked. When I finish a current order of 7 speakers for a customer, I'll build the A/V-3's. There's a guy here at work who just listened to the A/V-2's and is pressuring me to get the A/V-3's done so he can audition them. I can let you know what his impressions are.

    Thanks Hank. Look forward to hearing your thoughts. Obviously the AV3's should play lower, but my question is whether they are less accurate/clear than the AV1+ as a trade off. Sounds like speaker building is keeping you busy.
