So after my search for an interesting midrange to mate with my Fountek NeoCd3.5H tweeter. After some suggestions to go with a 3" driver I decided at this point to use something I have on my shelf. I have 4 different 3" midranges. 2 of them look like they can work. One is the HiVi C3N-III and the other is a Tang Band W3-881SI. After reading a review from ampslab-spk about the C3N-III, I decided to give it a shot. The problem I have with most 3" drivers with a ferrite magnet, is that the mounting hole and magnet are close to the same diameter. With my left over butcher block counter I am using
for the speaker face, it is hard to get any breathing room for those drivers. I decided to make a metal faceplate and rear mount the 3" driver and make a much bigger hole for the rear of the driver. Here is where I am at now.
