  • WT3 and Windows 10

    So from a long hiatus I'm getting back into speaker building again and broke out my WT3 and am getting some funky results on W10. For setup I ensured mic was 2ch at CD quality same with the volume, both set to 100 (also tried various levels that didn't seem to work either) also upgraded to 1.5. During calibration shorting the leads I was getting resistance >1ohm (http://i.imgur.com/7kvQAtJ.png?1) so it said calibration failed, when I did the 1kohm test it was fairly far off from what my multimeter was showing.

    Any thoughts on what I did incorrectly? Has anyone gotten their hold WT3 working on W10?

    Hey Justin,
    It's been a long time! Nice to see you back around here.

    Try this thread for some ideas: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/fo...t-wt3-on-there

    I think Hong had a good thread on getting the WT3 to work that he started but I wasn't able to find it. I know he helped me figure a few things out in the past.

    I had a WT3 go bad a while back as well.
    Went to the new DATS and it was an improvement... faster ready times and a few more bells & whistles.

    Hope you get it figured out.

      Mine works in W10, set to W7 compatibility mode, with the recording mic volume set very low. It takes a long while to settle in, so you're best off to open it a good ten minutes before you want to use it.

        I experience the same thing oddly. And I also set the mic volume at something like 2 or 3. Someone told me about this once. It worked. Im using win7 though maybe itll help thr OP with win10.

            So I was already running in compatibility mode but setting the mic to ~20 did the trick! Finally got a good reading http://i.imgur.com/WU4HsZ5.png though the Fs of this driver is a full 10Hz higher than claimed might have to check with a few other drivers to confirm things. I did re-foam the surrounds so that might have changed the parameters a bit, but I didn't think it would do *that* much.

            As always thanks for all your help!

              Did you break it in?

                ...

                No...

                I'll hook them up to an amp tonight to do so. I had used them for quite a while in my car and forgot the surrounds wouldn't be broken in...

                  I FORGOT about "compatibility mode", but what I DID have to do to get either/both my WT3 AND DATS hardware to run on my OLD Vista DT was to revert BACK to my orig. WT3 software. I NEVER had any trouble w/my WT/DATS intil Win10 force-loaded itself on the notebook. SOME Vista upgrade (prob. 'cause Vista support is ending and MS scared me into a final "update") I did last hosed up my WT/DATS systems.

                    So after it running at 20Hz at fairly high amplitude for an hour the Fs dropped 3Hz I then ran it overnight and got the same reading so I think it's settled in now. It's still quite above the quoted spec but it models pretty deep so I'm going with it.

                      Bump. A new computer, the latest version of W10 and my WT3 didn't get along at all. I was almost ready to toss the WT3, as an experiment I downloaded the DATS software from TrueAudio, did the necessary adjustments, and it worked. Still running it in W7 compatibility mode, I didn't try it in W10 mode. The control panel is a bit different but not hard to figure out.

                        Go to Know, I could not get mine to work with Windows 10.
                        Guess xmax's age.
