Does anyone have a good link or two that gives noobs a tutorial on speaker types/design and sound theory? For example, something that delves into the frequency ranges and the type of woofer, driver, tweeter required for each range and their limitations. Maybe something that discusses port design and its importance to sound quality or something that describes the difference in number of drivers can make to sound? I didn't find any article links in my forum search.

There are many books about this. Try Colloms: High Performance Loudspeakers

Thanks Kal, it might be a bit heavy reading but its better than a random opinion on the net!

OK. Try Vance Dickason's Loudspeaker Cookbook. Less theory and more application info but, perhaps, more readable.
