We begin with a short survey on recent results on closed hyperbolic 3-manifolds, with the emphasis on the volume and the smallest non-zero eigenvalue and their relation. We show how to construct examples which demonstrate that these results are roughly sharp, and we discuss some related open questions on the geometry of towers of finite covers, with some new supporting evidence that these conjectures are true.
