Siegfried Linkwitz (November 23, 1935 – September 11, 2018) was a German American engineer who was noted co-inventor of the Linkwitz–Riley filter[1] along with Russ Riley. He submitted several important technical papers to the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society and other related publications, which have become foundational to modern loudspeaker theory.[2] Examples of his most recent work included extensive development of dipolar loudspeaker theory.[3]

Linkwitz was also a contributor to electronics and "DIY" loudspeaker enthusiast magazines such as Electronics (Wireless) World, and Speaker Builder magazines.[4][5] He died in 2018 at the age of 82.[6][7]
