What's a good book for designing your own studio monitor speakers?

I was wondering if you knew of any diy projects to build studio monitor
speakers like the mackie hr824: http://www.mackie.com/products/hr824/ or
other types of pro monitor speakers?

I'm putting together a home-recording studio and all I'm missing are the
monitor speakers. I'd like to get the mackie hr824 or higher end products,
but I can't afford them.
Would you know of any resources which could help me build monitor speakers
myself?
Thanks,

I haven't been following this issue for a number of years, but
one method that used to be popular for studio monitors
was near-field monitoring. The basic idea was to use a
pair of small speakers sitting right on top of the mixer
console, a couple of feet from your head. Even big
studios were doing this, not to save money but because
the engineer heard more of the mix and less of the room.
That was before computer sound systems, and the
monitors they used were of the sort called "bookshelf"
speakers. I think they had 6 or 8 inch woofers and
maybe tweeters, no midrange drivers. I suspect that
today's decent computer speakers would do a pretty good
job in this capacity.
