    Loudspeaker design books

    This is one thing I want to get into as of this christmas break, so I'm thinking of putting this on my x-mas wish list. Currently I have two 4" drivers that I'd like to build an enclosure for and run full range with no x-over so it'd be good if the book covers a wide range of speaker designs. I'll probably start another thread with more specifics about the project nearer the time.
    Any suggestions of decent books?

    Vance Dickason - Loudspeaker Design Cookbook
    Ray Alden - Speaker Building 201...
    David Weems - Designing/Building Speaker Systems.

    I would start with the Alden and Weems books...if you can get through that, Dickason book is your next step. The Cookbook is the bible for DIY-ing...but it gets technical and some noobs have a hard time following it...the others take more time to explain the basics.

    Yep, they're the classics. Start with them.

    You might want some design software too. Athough they have some limitations, HT Audio's Bass Box Pro 6 and X-Over Pro 3 are elegant, easy to use programs.
