The A/V-3S

The A/V-3S is a sealed box version of the A/V-3.

It uses the same drivers as the floor standing version, but it has been optimized for this smaller sealed box design.

This sealed box design allows it to be used as a center channel speaker or as left and right mains when placement dictates that they be up against a wall or mounted in an entertainment system.

The sealed box design limits low end extension to the upper 80's, but the roll off is more gradual.

It comes fully shielded unless otherwise specified, so placing it next to or over a tube type TV is no problem.

On its side, as pictured above, the off axis horizontal response is good to about 25 degrees off axis. If seating forces some to be outside that range then the standard A/V-1, with the tweeter mounted above the woofer, is recommended as it has a wider horizontal coverage range.

This kit is easy to assemble and can be considered beginner to novice level in difficulty. The wiring diagram has been provided in picture form, so you don't even need to know how to read a schematic.

Tools needed for assembly include a soldering gun, a heat gun (for sealing the glue filled heat shrink) or a really hot hair dryer, a Phillips head screw driver, and a number 15 Torx driver. Other tools that may help include a pair of needle noise pliers, and some good wire stripers.

The enclosures are designed to be easy to build as well.

For building the enclosures the recommended tools include a table saw, a router with a circle jig, wood glue, claps or finishing nails (for holding it until the glue dries), drill, sand paper, etc.

Depending on how you choose finish them there will be an expense for veneer or paint.

We now offer the new patent pending Electra Tube Connectors as an option on all of the A/V series kits. The tube connectors are superior to all current binding posts. These have a $59 a set retail value.

The standard kit now comes with Erse XQ inductors and Erse Pulse X poly caps. Sonicap Gen.2 by-pass caps are also standard with this kit. The standard internal wire is a high purity solid core 16 gauge with a polyethylene jacket. The kit even includes screws, solder, heat shrink, and binding post cup.
