    A good video from a previous RMAF on acoustics as it relates to speaker cabinets/design. Stumbled upon it this morning.



    + covers good concepts such as diffraction, compression, rarefaction, interference at various frequencies, etc.
    + he uses good analogies and props to help you understand the concepts
    - it's an hour long
    - he has an annoying stream-of-consciousness style of speaking

    He references this paper from the 1950s which is a great read on its own: http://www.dwdrums.com/images/moonmic/olson_direct-radiator-loudspeaker-enclosures.pdf
