Hi folks,

Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I have a pretty extensive understanding of electronics, but a complete beginner when it comes to speaker and cabinet design/selection.

My project is a largish desktop radio (19" across) with fixed speakers in a sealed cabinet, a class d amp and all digital sources transferred on I2S to the amp. Love to hear from anyone that has worked on anything similar, especially about how they went about selecting drivers to use. Thanks for reading and all the best.

Hi Dave,

Please to meet you. I would love to pick your brain a little once I have gotten up to speed on driver characteristics. I have been reading an older book called "Advanced speaker designs for the hobbyist and technican" by Ray Alden and Joseph A. D'Appolito.

Decent source of information, but a little dated.
