You could do worse than picking up a copy of Vance Dickason's Loudspeaker Designer's Cookbook if you're just starting out :)

Welcome to the forum Will :)

Better to grab it at audioXpress, Madisound, or Parts Express and support the little guys in the industry.

I would buy it from one of the smaller companies but im in the UK so il probably end up getting it from amazon! =/

shame - i really wanted to get stuff from parts express but shipping to the UK is over $100 on most things. . .

Hi Rocker,

What kind of use are these speakers you have in mind for?

Home or Car?

Don't worry - I've found a few sites to help you out.

Impact Audio - Visaton Loudspeakers, TEAC, Myryad & Roksan HiFi Systems

The first sells many of the high end stuff you'll see here, it also sells various speaker books, including the one you're after.

The second is more of a Visaton specialist, selling a few high end ones and quite a few "general purpose" speakers.

For general speakers, have a look at CPC | CPC - Over 100, 000 products from one of the worlds leading distributors of electronic and related products. - while they don't show all specs on the site, if you need parameters etc, they're more than happy to help.

Welcome to the forums,
