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

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

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,

"If you underspecify some resistors they can add extra phlogiston to the music mix. This gives a much more dramatic effect than refulgence, however superb it may be. Phlogiston can move a listener in a way that ordinary music cannot." - DF96
