Floyd Toole, now retired Vice President of Acoustical Engineering for Harman International Industries, Inc. is arguably one of the leading experts in the world on the acoustics and psychoacoustics of speakers. In fact, Floyd Toole has published a book by the same name, which reflects his years of research at both Canada’s National Research Council and Harman. Scott Wilkinson, host of Home Theater Geeks conducted a fascinating interview with Floyd Toole.
For anyone who cares about the interaction of speakers and their room, this is a great interview. If you’re interested, you can also read Floyd Toole’s book by purchasing it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Reproduction-Acoustics-Psychoacoustics-Loudspeakers/dp/0240520092/
