Introduction to Loudspeaker Design is written for hobbyists, students, technicians and engineers seeking an overview of the technology of loudspeakers. Starting with a brief history of audio developments the book begins by introducing the concepts of frequency, pitch and loudness and proceeds to develop the idea of a loudspeaker as a system.
The book covers such topics as loudspeaker design tradeoffs, spatial loading, diffraction loss, cavity effect and enclosure design. A complete chapter is devoted to the subject of crossover design. The appendices contain technical references, design aids and a chart depicting 18 different loudspeaker enclosure types.
The author is a physicist/audio design engineer with over 35 years experience in the research and development of audio products. His WinSpeakerz application is widely used throughout the audio industry as a tool for evaluating loudspeakers before they are built.
The illustrated 208 page paperback 2nd edition is priced at $24.95.
