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.


     

     

NOTE: VIFA production line along with SCANSPEAK and PEARLESS were acquired by TYMPHANY in 2005. In early 2009 TYMPHANY was separated in two divisions: a Hong-Kong based company which kept the Tymphany name as well as the Vifa and Peerless brands and the Danish Scan-Speak division which remained with its operations in Videbaek, Denmark and continued to produce and market the Scan Speak brand.

Recently TYMPHANY discontinued the production of VIFA brand name. In the following table you will find datasheets from either old VIFA catalogs or the relative section of 'discontinued' VIFA loudspeakers in TYMPHANY's website (September 17th, 2013).
