Speaker Design - Extreme Beginner

So I love high quality music.  I want to get into speaker design, and pretty much everything that has to do with high quality sound.  Is there a book, articles, website, or anywhere I can look since I am a complete noob and am in the dark.  A point in the right direction would be great, especially if its specific to speaker design.

Is hobbyist speaker

Is hobbyist speaker construction still viable?  All the literature I've been able to find is pretty dated.  Is it still possible to teach your self speaker design and construct your own speakers that are better than industry?

Sure, there is useful information, but the book is not easy to navigate to find it and actually apply it to a project.  There are other sources that are better for the beginner that will actually help them build loudspeakers.

Yes, it is still possible. Your best bet is getting involved in the numerous DIY speaker websites and forums.
