Books and Papers:

My enduring design handbook High Performance Loudspeakers (John Wiley & also available at, ISBN: 0-470-09430-33) has been in print for 30 years, and is now in its 6th edition. It has been translated into several foreign languages and received a most favourable review in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, Vol. 40, Number 1/2. The extensively revised 6th edition was published in autumn 2005. Dr Paul Darlington ( contributed a new chapter, comprising a radical and refreshing approach to the theory of diaphragms and sound radiation, through a simple model which leads directly to the familiar equivalent circuits. All useful classes of radiator are analysed.
