    Technical References

    I propose we use this Thread to document some of the references that we find pivotal, with a brief mention on why. There are some references I know got buried out in the ether, and I will go find 'em and get it all here.

    Pro Audio Reference

    by Rane's engineer Dennis Bohn (2002). Great stuff on crossover theory, filter design and use, and balanced vs unbalanced with attention to ground loops.

    Great stuff, although it does promote Rane gear. Regardless, they've done a good job...

    Sound Recording

    ...by John Eargle (1980, 2nd ed).

    A wonderful compilation of techniques and experiences with recording that translate to reproduction knowledge.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Long out-of-print, but Amazon's affiliated used booksters are able to find good quality copies.

    Live Sound Reinforcement

    ...by Stark, (1996-2004).

    If you're working live, FOH (Front of House) engineering, or even studio recording, this is a great resource. Comprehensive and is relatively current technology.

    I've got a bunch of sound reference books but they're all now in boxes in the garage, suffering from my recent move, until I get bookshelves back up.

    I can't remember the title or author offhand, but my favorite is a big yellow book about 3/4" thick - I've got it all marked up with pencil notes...

    Great book.

    The New Audio Cyclopedia, Sound Engineers handbook. By Glenn Ballou. Last printing in the 90,s.

    Alot of technical information of speakers, electronics, and acoustics. As well as recording, types of gear for different applications. Informative large hard cover book.

    Although it is out of print you can try www.alibris.com. They specialize in hard to find and out of print literature.

    For people just getting going in this stuff, I recommend The Loudspeaker Design Cook Book and Bullock on Boxes . These are available from parts express.

    Thanks for the thread Bo. Great idea.

    Basic Car Audio Electronics - website

    A most useful, leviathan repository of very useful information. You are able to donate to the cause by purchase of a CD-ROM. Good stuff, and interactive calculators on networks, cabinet tuning, etc. Nice guy...

    http://www.bcae1.com/

    This, and the following one, can be useful when travelling, library-less, but Internet enabled...
