* The editor makes no claims as to how well any of these projects work. Some are really well documented, some just description, some with a large historical context. In each case the builder_author was pleased enuff with his work to write an article or forward me information for me to generate their pages.

Transmission Line Speaker design is still as much an art as it is science. These projects encompass designs from classical methods to serious attempts to quantify the relationship of speaker parameters to the transmission line we put it in. They provide examples of approaches the builders have taken to get something they can use to sit down and enjoy the music.

If you build one of these designs, or a variation let
me know how it turns out. If you would like to put your project up on these pages I would be very pleased to talk to you.
