DIY speaker building hints, links, and several modest proposals on how speakers REALLY should be built.
(5/21/2021) Important Note! These pages were written in the early 2000's. In those days, the only speakers that used electronic crossovers were professional public address systems. Now speakers using electronic crossovers are common. But what I wrote is still valid, if you have a bunch of old school loudspeakers and several spare amplifiers. Most of the links on this page were written in the early 2000's and are still valid. I just now took a pass through and commented out dead links. Other content may or may not still be valid.(End of 2021 content.)
(Early 2000's important note) This was written under the assumption that the reader would be a typical speaker building hobbiest. If you don't have much experience yet, please do more research before you do anything expensive. As a rough rule of thumb, if you are already a current subscriber of Speaker Builder then you should be OK. (Old advice that was written when Speaker Builder was published. Back issues are available, though.) At the very least, get The Loudspeaker Design Cookbook.
