Feel free to add more as you see fit, we may all learn new things. References to Wikipedia are also great for generalised basics. A few good ideas on where to start on search topics to get the basics down would be as follows; "Acoustics", "High Fidelity", "High-end Audio Cables", "Loudspeaker Enclosure", "Loudspeaker", "Mid-range Speaker", "Musical acoustics", "Sound reinforcement system", "Sound", "Soundproofing", "Standing waves", "Subwoofer", "Tweeter", "Wavefront", "Woofer". Just some ideas for starters, happy learning and feel free to check out the details of my current audio system at any time here --> Audio System Specs (http://www.nrnl.org/post129.html#p129) :-)
