Basic info on the subject of acoustics

  1. Jul 6, 2006 #1
    Hello again,
    I am wondering where I might find some basic info on the subject of acoustics. I have some books that I plan on reading, but I was just wondering if anyone knows of any online sources. I have already done a search for acoustics here but not any luck :uhh: Anyways, I would also like to hear your comments on the books I have choosen:

    "Basic Acoustics" by Donald E. Hall
    - this is copyrighted in 1993 so I think it's fairly up-to-date..

    "The Theory of Sound" by J. W. S. Rayleigh
    - this is the first volume of two...it's the unabridged version

    That's the two I have so far..I got them from two different libraries and I have about a month to read both...

    Also, if you have any tips that you wish to submit pertaining to acoustics, just give a hollar...I'll be gladly listening :surprised

    I can't offer any advice bent. But there does seem to be some fairly good stuff on the web. For example this one has animations:
