Knowledge Base Pages

These pages give you background information about the how & why behind loudspeaker function and design. I've collected and condensed loads of information in order to create a convenient, comprehensive, one-stop resource. Each page includes references with links to the relevant sources. (For the engineers our there, some of the links have the mathematical equations you crave.) I have not referenced the books I've used. Most are easily found online or from your local library.

The Principles & Priorities page outlines the sequence of steps necessary for designing a loudspeaker appropriate for its purpose.

The Types of Audio Distortion page defines in basic terms the different types of distortions and their audibility. It's all about eliminating distortion.

The 3 Keys page sums up the primary criteria for building a loudspeaker that delivers the goods while keeping distortion levels at a minimum.
