Today's root is phon, which is a normal Greek root meaning "sound."

Symphony: Sym + phon + y (noun suffix) = Many sounds together.

Euphony: Eu + phon + y = A good sound (or many good sounds).

Cacophony: Caco + phon + y = A bad sound (or many bad sounds).
Also, the adjective cacophonous describes something that sounds very bad.
