    After building a DYI bookshelf speaker kit I am now hooked. Can someone give me advice on a good DYI speaker design book? Also, wondering if a program like BassBox Lite (from Parts Express) would be a good subwoofer program to start with.
    Thanks :b

    I think the programs Unibox and WinIsd are popular for subwoofer simulations. LspCAD is also a good program if you plan on modeling Adire Audio drivers.

    Many people seem to like The Loudspeaker Design Cookbook by Vance Dickason. Keep in mind that the critical component to speaker design is the crossover. Crossovers for subs are less critical but for two-way or three-way designs it will make or break your design. This book does a good job on boxes but may leave you wanting on crossovers.
