I read and read these pieces and I must admit it shaped a lot of my own thinking about loudspeaker design. Aspects such as driver selection, crossover points etc. Not everyone will agree with Lynn Olson I accept. So no holy grail but for me, his assumptions make sense both conceptually and through putting some of them into practice and listening to the outcomes.

Maybe worth sharing in DIY section(again)?

Much appreciated bbe22 ! I like Olson's philosophy when it comes to designing amplifiers too . I'll be sure to study these pieces .
