Welcome to ESP, the home of DIY audio articles, projects and (some) shortform kits. Audio is a wonderful hobby, and with DIY there is a huge scope to get the very best performance for a lot less money than otherwise. DIY audio is fun and educational, and by building your own audio equipment, you get to learn electronics as well as build equipment that would cost a great deal more in the shops. ESP is committed to providing high quality projects that are known to work, printed circuit boards (PCBs) for the most popular projects, and to assist you if necessary to complete or debug your project. There is a very wide range of power amplifiers, preamps, guitar/ bass amplifiers, studio equipment, effects, and other projects to build, including loudspeakers, subwoofers, and many others. Purchase PCBs to gain access to even more information.
IMPORTANT: Please see the disclaimer for information about these pages.
You should also read the Links Info to see ESP's revised links policy. It explains why I use external links sparingly.

It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Siegfried Linkwitz. He passed away on 11 September 2018, and will be greatly missed by audio enthusiasts worldwide. I wish to express my condolences to his family, business associates and his many followers. Siegfried was responsible for the Linkwitz-Riley crossover (along with a co-worker Russ Riley), and also developed the Linkwitz Transform Circuit.
While his loudspeaker designs may not be to everyone's taste, there is no denying the effort and passion that Siegfried applied to all aspects of his audio adventures. His contributions will be with us for many years to come, a fitting memorial to an exceptional designer.
