 Loudspeaker Design Cookbook
The Loudspeaker Design Cookbook by Vance Dickanson, currently in its 6th edition, will teach you more than you ever wanted to know or even thought existed when it comes to both the art and (mostly) science of designing loudspeaker systems. You'll also find out first hand how useful that algebra you learned in high school really is. This book covers the most popular types of enclosures from the simple acoustic suspension (think old AR and Kloss designs) to ported bass reflex and bandpass designs that are so popular now. There is also a wealth of information on crossover design. Among amateur speaker builders, and even some pros, this is the one book that you just have to have on your shelf.


 How to Design and Install High Performance Car Stereo
If your are a beginner, and want to build your self an amazing audio system on your car, this is the book you need. The book provides an introductory explanation of each topic, and then it moves to more technical information, always with a reference to real world applications. With a lot of pictures , diagrams, key terms and glossary sections for each chapters, the author shows the basic principles and provides the know how. Features the following chapters: Head Units, Equalizers, Crossovers, Amplifiers, Speakers, Enclosures, Wiring for sound, Ground rules, Installations (Hands on tech). The book may look out of date, but the principles and math are still the same, maybe there should be a second edition or an update.


Car Stereo Speaker Projects Illustrated


Car Stereo Speaker Products Illustrated the moment I read the last word in the title: ILLUSTRATED. Finally a car stereo book that is completely illustrated with step by step procedures for all types of projects for cars, vans, and SUVs. I started reading this book with very little knowledge of how to build my own system, but now I feel confident enough to tackle my stereo project before me. Dan Ferguson really hit it on with this book! It's a must for any beginner car stereo enthusiasts!


The Car Stereo Cookbook


I give due credit for my outstanding audio to the "Car Stereo Cookbook". I found far more audio system information than I will ever need, but scanning through the chapters(and actually reading some) gave me the information I needed to design and install a system in my vehicle. I thought subs were only for gangsta's, but this 44 year old avid hunter now has one in my 4x4 truck, and wouldn't trade for it. Although Rumreich does get rather technical in some areas, the average handyman possessing an average dose of common sense can navigate this sea of information quite easily. Thanks Mark for this great source of "do it yourself" info!


Auto Audio


This book is so easy to read and understand. Unless you have experience, this is probably the only book available that will explain audio and car audio concepts in a language you can understand. I've read other books, and so many were frustrating because they say "Assumes some knowledge of car audio" in the intorduction. This really means "I'm not going to bother defining half of my terms so that you will be left very confused and frustrated trying to make sense of what I'm talking about." Not so with Auto Audio. I understood everything he said, and it was very useful.


How to Custom Paint & Graphics

Essential information concerning airbrush care and maintenance is included along with paint and accessory explanations.

Speakers for Your Home and Automobile


Gordon McComb gives a fantastic explanation on the workings of speakers that will make one feel like a pro once finished reading the book. Great for people wanting to make thier own speakers or just wanting to become more knowledgable. The terms used are not too technical but in depth enough to give a 'sound' understanding (excuse the pun). Well done Gordon.


Introduction to Loudspeaker Design


Even if you don't know a woofer from a tweeter, but can solder, cut wood, and do basic arithmetic, this book will give you sufficient knowledge and intuitive grasp to select the type of system you need, and, with some software and/or experience, successfully design a complete speaker system. In conclusion, I cannot imagine a better "Introduction to Loudspeaker Design" than this book.


Designing, Building, and Testing Your Own Speaker System


This definitive do-it-yourself book on creating and testing all kinds of speaker systems is updated to cover the latest makes and models. It also includes new speaker tests, expanded information on crossover networks, techniques for designing double-chamber reflex enclosures, practical rather than theoretical dimension charts, and more. He also gives good working explanations of crossovers, impedance-compensation networks, notch filters, L-pads, and some alternative, practical approaches often missing from other books. Of great value also are diagrams for winding your own choke coils and a good method for measuring speaker T-S parameters without sophisticated equipment.


Advanced Speaker Designs for the Hobbyist & Technician


For a book of its size and length, it is pact with information on how to measure and calculate various parameters relating to speaker design. The book is based on a high school course offered by the author in the USA. Therefore this book is ideal for persons with reasonable high school mathematics backround. Calculations are stressed and done step by step, in tutorial fashion. Explanations of driver parameters is excellent.

Handbook for Sound Engineers


This book has everything that an audio engineer would need to know, and nothing you don't. It gives you all the technical information that you could ever need while not being so pretentious as to tell you how you should use it. It is a terrific reference and will give you insight as to how some engineers chose to use thier tools.


Audio Systems Technology, Level #1


Audio Systems Technology Level 1 provides a basic platform for understanding the installation process of audio systems. While the information is well written and easy to understand, as a person with real world knowledge of audio systems, I was expecting more technical information. So if you are a Sound Engineer or DJ with road experience, you might want to start at Level 2. If you are a raw recruit in the audio world, this is a great book. The format is excellent, with quiz questions at the end of each chapter, a chapter on first aid and safety, and information about where to take tests to become a certified Audio Systems Installer. I know I will be purchasing level two and level three.
