Best schools of speaker design, electronics etc
 
Hi guys are you aware of the best schools of speaker design, crossover design , speaker electronics etc ... in Denmark or Europe please ?

Your University of Denmark has a good history of audio subjects and Soren Bech there was involved with excellent research in psychoacoustics. As for speaker design, no one really teaches it directly. Find a good engineering school and take all the analog and digital network design you can find, plus physics, magnetics, acoustics, architectural acoustics and a little music theory.

Before you go too far you should look into the job market some and see whether this will realistically be a career or a hobby.

There are no schools of speaker design. Engineering is split into various disciplines such as mechanical, electrical, civil, etc... the best fit of which is likely to be acoustical engineering although it is fairly rare as a first degree. DTU is the obvious one in Denmark, ISVR in the UK is perhaps the largest and best known but there are others. Salford in the UK run an Audio Acoustics degree. However, there tends to be an inverse relationship between specialisation of the course and status of the institution and degree.

acoustics program and spk design
 
In Canada prof. John Vanderkooy (University of Waterloo) was heading such a gradute program in acoustics research. I know he cooperated with Bowers&Wilkins on their speakers, and I am guessing probably has ties to "Paradigm" since they are local to him.

If there are no speaker design schools , how do those speaker designers create them ?? Where do they get the knowledge from ? :O

Actually I just want to do it cause it is my passion :) And why not improve on the conventional speakers :)
