My speaker projects
P4 and me
Building loudspeakers is a great
hobby. It requires involvement of 5 important but very different skills:
- and voodoo
The fun part is that there is no one
recipe. No one dominating trend.
Otherwise, the big corporations would always make best speakers having
all their resources.
P10 and me
In Loudspeakers - we small mortals can still make things better than
the commercial giants.
There are many schools in loudspeaker design - small monitors, narrow
floorstanders, horns, transmission lines, big multiways - many many
options. And each variant can be very good (or very bad).
Commercial guys simply can't make very good speakers because of
economic constraints. Good speakers are big, heavy and transportation
requires wooden crates etc. It is OUT OF THE QUESTION. I don't even
mention that the current trend is to build moulded plastic speakers and
them in supermarkets.
Starting from my first Project Zero and ending at the unbelievably good
project 12 (later beaten by 25), I have learnt something about
speakers. I hope this web site
illustrates well the learning curve. Later projects are just variations
