Default I want to learn about (full range) drivers. - Newbie

Hi all,

I'm wondering if there are any books or sites out there that can explain more about drivers.

When I go onto Madisound and have a look through all the drivers on there I get confused. What's good for what? Why is this driver $200 and the other $50?
You know, basic stuff for a newbie like me.

All I can do really is look at pictures and pick the prettiest looking one and then look at the frequency range and price,...

Thanks heaps!

I started by reading about full rangers and ended up researching more about woofer/tweeter 2-ways. Eventually, I might get into 3-ways.

I don't want to spend time repeating everything I've said about this. Have fun reading though. It's an interesting topic.

I would start at a website called fullrangedriver.com. I have learned over the years to buy and try and sell. You can only do this so many times intill the wife says something. I have learned what type of cone I like and what type of box I am willing to build. Its alot of trail and error. You are the finally judge and you have to live with them. Let your ears be the judge.

oh nice. exactly what I was after.
instead of using the search function here I should have used google. How dumb of me.

Thanks guys!

I'll start learning.

@natural sound my girl is already saying things and I've just started, but she means well. There's always the argument that good speakers from a shop would cost me more, that and it keeps me busy.
