Scorpion, I have had a brief look through the link, but I'm a complete tech dummy and have no idea what I was reading.

I would have commented sooner but I didn't want to sound negative or stupid.:) I'm sure I'll find something in that lot that I can make sense of, so I'll keep going back for a read.

yer, the klippel stuff is pretty darn technical. requires a lot of background knowledge on transducer design to make sense of most of it. i have a very limited grasp on transducer design so most of it doesn't make sense to me either :)

I've made a couple of posts elsewhere that link to some useful sites, but I reckon this is the thread for them. They're written by people that really know what they're talking about (not like me, lol), are invariably great resources if you have the patience and above all, they're well written and presented. Apologies if you know about these sites, otherwise, fill ya boots;

Speakers. 5 pages of really meaty speaker design material from Siegfried Linkwitz (yup the one that the Linkwitz-Riley filter is named after); http://www.linkwitzlab.com/frontiers.htm. A modest man (check out his cv), his entire site is chock-full of useful audio stuff for diy audiofools.

A Power amplifier design and diy advice from Professor W. Marshall Leach, Jr. Includes plans & resources for building a high-current, low TIM amp (I made one myself ages ago and, aside from frying a couple of output transistors when I was fooling with a woofer once, it's been rugged and dependable as well as sounding mighty fine). The design originated in the long lost "Audio" magazine from the US of A and has evidently undergone updates to make it more rugged and to incorporate modern devices; http://users.ece.gatech.edu/~mleach/lowtim/

All sorts of useful stuff from Keith Howard MSc, contributing editor to Stereophile magazine. I got on to EAC, (CD ripping software) via Keith's site and it works a treat (btw, read about the McLaren F1 and Ferrari F50 just for fun). http://www.audiosignal.co.uk/resindex.html

diy Loudspeaker plans from John "Zaph" Krutke at http://www.zaphaudio.com/. Chock full of driver tests, etc. some of which are available here in oz. I especially like the look of these for those of us who share the a/v with the lounge room (wife's domain); http://www.zaphaudio.com/audio-speaker18.html. Drivers available locally from; http://darcheraudio.com.au/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=26. I'm going to get a bunch of these for my next speaker design. If they're as good as Zaph says....

Hi All,

I'm new to all this, but would appreciate any help or advice. I have a NAD 3240 PE with a pair of Advent Prodigy's hooked up to it. The NAD has allowance for 2 pairs of speakers. Is there any way I can hook up a subwoofer to this setup, or is what I'm asking ridiculous? Over to you.

For all those interested in audio DIY I would recommend the link below and check out the latest on ceramic capacitors. Very interesting stuff.

http://www.eevblog.com/

That David Jones is a legend!

Check out the Audiophool blog in particular. I don't necessarily agree with what he gets so emotional about but he has some valid points.

Make sure to check out the link to the cable debate.

This one is is a bit different. Music rather than Hifi, and sales are via e-mail communications. (It's not an online store) I got hard-to-find manuals for my Roland keyboard and Yamaha Reverb Processor from this gentleman.
