4.0 out of 5 stars OK for starters., 5 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Great Sound Stereo Speaker Manual: With Projects (Paperback)
A good beginner's book for those interested in building their own speakers without getting into heavy mathematics, passive electronics, complex woodworking, or folded horns. The book explains some the rudiments of speaker theory, and barely enough to design your own simple crossover network. The book has several economical projects which the author already debugged and are ready to build, including: the make and model of the speakers, list of passive components, schematic - which usually include extras like a Zobel network, and the cabinet dimensions. Their are several two-way projects and one three-way with a ten-inch woofer. Most designs use a soft-dome tweeter, if that's what you like. There is a list of raw component vendors in the back of the book. The designs for the ported boxes use the Thiel method, and I am finding that this may be conservatively sized toward the large side with respect to a flat bass response. The prose is a bit wordy, but still easy to read. Overall, I have learned a few things from this book.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great Sound Stereo Speaker Manual: With Projects (Paperback)
I just love this book. It has some great projects from clossed box designs, ported vent designs through to transmission line projects. It even has a design based on a flue pipe enclosure!
