In everyone's opinion, which DIY book is the best. They sell alot of them at Parts Express. In terms of amount of designs, quality of designs, etc.

In addition to construction/speaker design theory/calculations it's also very handy to have an understanding as to what's actually doing on with acoustics. The 'bible' for that info is:

"The Master Handbook of Acoustics", 3rd Edition
by F. Alton Everest

The famous book "Dichtung und Wahrheit" (for me the best book in German) now available again, but as PDF file (free Download): - solutions in sound
