1. step 1


     -Read our tutorial articles to get a detailed picture of what hifi

     

     speaker design is all about.


     -Browse the list of loudspeaker manufacturer websites and use

     

     our database of downloadable loudspeaker datasheets to select

     

     your drivers.


     -Choose the right design software that suits you best to

     

     calculate your enclosure dimensions and buy everything

     

     you need from a retail shop.




  2. step 2 v2


      -Assemble your crossover-less speaker and let your lab equipment

     

     (or measurement software) acquire the necessary response

     

      measurements. Use your crossover design software to decide a

     

      crossover network that fits your acoustical targets.


     -Browse the list of component manufacturer websites and buy all the

     

      necessary components.


     -Use a suitable pcb and your soldering equipment to conclude

     

      your crossover network implementation.



     

     

  3. step 3

     

     


     -If you get addicted to hifi speaker design you can try to

     

      broaden your technical background by consulting our

     

     book review section and -why not- browsing the

     

     journals of the existing audio societies.


     -You can also get closer to audio enthusiasts' community

     

     through our list of worldwide audio websites,

     

     web-magazines and discussion fora.
