Sound Design, a new book on innovative and interesting ideas in speaker design.
I wish to create a small book as a free pdf, as a go-to for inspirational designs.

I haven't come across one in my searching.

The aim are to try and cover the most unique designs mainly commercial, in terms of styling and how this relates to there sound. Primary interest is the aesthetics and perhaps the smaller elements that make some design great.

Current shortlist is (in no order):

Kef Muon

B&W 800D, Nautilus

YG Acoustics Kipod

Martin Logans Summit X

Rogers LS3

Duevel Planets

Avant Garde, Duo and Trio Classica

Quads electrostatic


JMlabs Grande Utopia

B&0 BeoLab 5

Jamo R909

If anyone has any comments, ideas, suggestions or general thoughts, let me know.

Studio Au.

You are missing the Walsh driver and HEIL driver based systems. Maggies. You might consider what Earl G is doing. Then what makes something like a Vanderstein 2CE just plain work. It seems so generic, yet it is like an old comfortable pair of shoes. Linn Isobaric, and what is that funky Peerless auto woffer? You would have to include the Bose 901.

Then there is the Tanburg Facets. Revolutionary in several ways as I believe the first mass produced molded plastic, bright orange things. I still have a pair on my desk as computer speakers.
