Again a fair amount of solid info but this is a book I wish I had found at the local library.
The book is mostly geared towards recording engineers for whom loudspeakers are essential tools of the trade, but who normally do not have a solid grasp of the physics and engineering of loudspeakers. Unlike many other books and articles on speakers, there are few equations and formulas here. The language is easy to follow, and there are plenty of illustrations and charts to help you understand.
There is sort of a religious debate in the high end audio community between subjectivists (trust only your ears, any part of the sound system matters a lot) and objectivists (everything is measurable, and all competently designed components sound similar). This book sheds light in both directions and shows where they fall short.
Some of the more controversial and interesting bits of the book are about how amplifiers can sound different, and how cables can change the sound depending on amplifier and speaker design. There apparently has been some scientific research on this. The amplifier-cable-crossover-driver system is apparently very complex, and certain designs are much more idiosyncratic to the point where small changes (e.g. different cable) can make an audible and measurable difference.
There are references to a bunch of other books and articles if you want to dig deeper. The authors refer a lot to Floyd Toole's articles and his recent book on acoustics which I recently read and reviewed on Amazon: Sound Reproduction: The Acoustics and Psychoacoustics of Loudspeakers and Rooms which is also recommended reading.
I highly recommend this book to all serious audio enthusiasts!
