    LM386 when operated from 6 volts can give sufficiently loud sound.

    Would it be possible to design class AB amplifier which can give that
    kind of loudness but with only 3 volts battery.

    Can I just use single stage class AB amplifier or .... what.

    Thank you in advance

    You only have half the volts available so, even ignoring for a second device
    saturation losses, at best you have a 6dB quieter sound.

    To regain the required volume you could try 2 AB stages operating in 'bridged
    mode'. This is where the 2 amplifiers operate in anti-phase and the speaker
    connects between the 2 outputs.
