Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value .These got five stars not because they are the greatest drivers in the world, but because they exceeded my expectations for a driver in this price range.I received a set of two of these drivers a few weeks ago and I am really satisfied. I put them in a sealed box at .15 cubes. The mid range and bass capabilities are exactly what I expected, and really surprised with the brightness and clarity...really no need for a tweeter in a compact set up. I'd buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value for the MoneyWorks Well, Sounds Good. Louder than I predicted it would be. Removed aluminum case and installed directly into speaker box, soldering connections directly to Amp Board for Power, Ground, Audio inputs and outputs. Used with a Lepai LP-2020A+ Tripath Class-T Hi-Fi Audio Mini Amplifierhttp://www.parts-express.com/lepai-lp-2020a-tripath-class-t-hi-fi-audio-mini-amplifier-without-power-supply--310-301Sound quality Exceeded my expectations.

HiVi B3N 3" Aluminum Driver Round Frame

Hello, I am building my first ever speaker and have zero knowledge on the subject. I purchased this B3N speaker along with a Dayton DTA 2 amplifier module. I am stumped on the power supply and wondered if you would suggest a particular wall adapter?

Asked by: Clumpydumpydoo5000
The power supply we recommend for that amplifier is below.http://www.parts-express.com/12-vdc-2000ma-2a-switching-power-supply-us-and-eu-21mm-plug--120-052

The CLIO T/S parameters are much different than the manufacturers specs. Which is correct? I would think the CLIO report but was wondering if anyone has double checked this because of the wide discrepancy. Thanks

Asked by: Chazguy
The Clio parameters will be quite a few years old at this point. The driver specs have been updated since then and what is on our site will reflect the most up to date specs available.

Looking to use 2 of these in a ported enclosure of .56 cu ft. Internal measurements are 14.5" X 7" X 9.5".  What port dimensions would I need to get a F3 of 44Hz?

Asked by: Aaron2477
I would recommend a port that is 1-1/2" in diameter and 1-1/2" long for that F3.

Would these work in 2010 jeep sound bar.. 3 inch hole but its closed behind speaker?

Asked by: wranbler104
These require a slightly smaller hole for a proper mount, but you may be able to get them to work. The only problem I can see would be a slight lack of output due to their low sensitivity and no appreciable bass response below probably 100 Hz or so. The FaitalPRO 3FE25 below would be a better choice in terms of overall output, but it will still require a slightly smaller hole for mounting.http://www.parts-express.com/faitalpro-3fe25-3-professional-full-range-woofer-4-ohm--294-1103

I just bought a Kinter MA-700 mini amp from Parts Express to build a little speaker project. Would this amp be enough to power a pair of these HiVi B3N speakers adequately?

Asked by: DarkLordExodus
Yes this will work for a pair of these drivers.
