    It's long but it's good read.


    Some of the issues covered include:-

    * Why do we put the speakers in a box?
    * How the speaker was invented and how it works.
    * Hermann and the Helmholtz Resonator and it's applications in the creation of vented loudspeakers enclosures.
    * Horns
    * Impedance transformation - the compression driver.
