This informative book on speaker building is primarily written to address the enclosures, but has valid information in regard to some Good designs that includes basic speaker information for added clairity for the reader. As given in the description it is a thorough, comprehensive handling of much of the theoretical information of constructing high-quality, top-performance speaker enclosures. This book does cover the advantages and disadvantages of several enclosure types and includes discussions on speaker drivers and crossover networks. After going through the chapters, (8), Speaker Enclosure discussions came first and then the drivers and how they are utilized in the enclosures, driver numbers and the matching of the enclosures. There is a good explanation concerning efficiencies of drivers, balance importance, multiple arrays of speakers and phasing of woofer, midrange and tweeters. Enclosure baffles is discussed in detail in Chapter three comparing three systems for explation of differnt uses. Bass Reflex or Phase Inversin Enclosures, Horn enclosures and the combination of enclosures follow in the next Three Chapters. There follows a thorough discussion of crossovers networks, picking the crossover frequencies, phase shifts, crossover rates, electronic crossovers, network configurations, equalizers and shelving. The final chapter discusses testing and materials of design, regidity, and speaker placement and phasing of stereo speakers is discussed in Summary. This is an older book on the design of Stereo systems, but the theory is still sound and can give a lot of good information to the reader to design and understand building of Speakers. I recommend this book. An easy read compared to those books from some of the newer authorities on the subject.
A little technical, but not more than anyone with basic math skills can manage.
