some of the sentiments expressed here are pertinent: http://lampizator.eu/SPEAKERS/Practical ... 20DIY.html

I have read that before but it was years ago. Thanks for the reminder.

Yes it seems he shares the throw the objectivist stuff in the bin view.

I like the bit that says he studied speaker design and designed them for years and they were all complex, unmusical shite. Cutting bits off table legs to make it level is a good anology. You end up cutting more and more bits of the music away until there is no music left.

The doc's way to design speakers is all about the music. Just a shame that a tweeter needs a protection cap to stop the lower frequencies damaging it. If that could be got rid there would be even more music :dance:

Music at the expense of a table top flat frequency response is something i can live with. :grin: The music is where it's at.
