    Hey Kerry,

    Great work so far! Are you going to demonstrate crossover design at some point using X-Sim? It's windows based and free. I think Bill was working with Jeff to incorporate some of the additional features that the PCD spreadsheet offered as well.

    One suggestion; I haven't watched this last video yet so maybe it's in it. If not, you might want to mention "Speaker Building 201". No, it's not free, but it is a very helpful resource for a beginner and would probably help the guys watching your videos understand things a little faster.

    Keep up the great work!

      Your videos are great. These are what a guy like me has been waiting for. I'm more of a "soft science" guy, so having an easy to understand reference that I can watch over and over is perfect. You mention designing crossovers; that would be great at some point.
      THANKS for doing this.

        WinISD (and/or Unibox) is the logical next choice. Excursion, max spl, port air speed.
        I always get the bass dialed in before any crossover modeling. That dictates the box size.

          I haven't mentioned Speaker Building 201 yet, but will mention it when I start talking about crossover design. I plan on doing X-Sim first since it is probably the easiest to understand how to use. WinPCD now has the functionality of pretty much what all of Jeff's spreadsheets did, as well as a few things they didn't. I like PCD better than X-Sim, but I haven't actually tried WinPCD yet. I know it is supposed to be easier for people who used PCD.

              On my Prazise build Wolf was helping me to lean crossover design. Wolf was working with Jeff's PCD and I was working with WinPCD. We arrived at the same place which tells me the two are close to identical.

              I don't really think WinPCD is easier than Jeff's PCD but for people like me who can't get a version of Excel for Jeff's program it's nice to know Neil's program can get us all to the same place as Jeff's.

              Even though I've done it once,,,, I'd love to see your Youtube video when it's done. Mark
