    please, could you suggest links where download various drivers measurements to import in simulation software ?
    i know that i must measure my own driver but my goal is to play with simulation

    thank you

        Re: Loudspeaker Drivers Measurements database

        MANY people have to find F/Z plots on the net, then "trace" them with some software to create .frd/.zma files. "fprawn" recently gave us a very nice trace program that works well. Many Dayton drivers have either .PDF files (wiht the graphs) OR even actual F/Z data files that you can download.

        Zaphaudio ran lots of tests. You can display THOSE on screen, do a screen capture, and past into a tracing program.

        There's also a big block of (somewhat older) drivers that PE sold that's been zipped. Maybe someone like Ben can give you a link to it?

          The new tracing tool mentioned.

          Haven't used it yet but reports of its use are excellent. I've used the old stuff (splcopy etc) fine but they're not very good, intuitive or forgiving. The new tool (from responses about it) indicate it solves all of that, and more. Good luck!
          Feel free to rip my assumptions apart when wrong, or fix if close.

          Passive Radiators:
          All PR(s) Vd must at-least double all woofer(s) Vd. Calc = Sd x Xmax to get Vd for all PR(s) and all woofer(s). If all PR(s) Vd at-least double all woofer(s) Vd they'll work.
          For woofer(s) with large Xmax vs Sd, all PR(s) with Xmax at-least double all woofer(s) Xmax will work.
          A PR max weight is said to be its Mms x3

          PR Systems - tight focus with key parameters.
          PR Speaker Design - thorough coverage.

              The only collection that I know about is here: http://www.audiodevelopers.com/Refer...D_data/FRD.php

              If you use the software in my signature you can open them directly from the application.

              If you or anyone else has some more to contribute, I will add them.

                  You get the txt/frd files by generating them from the traced graphs with the programs mentioned. They are not saying to use the picture for your sims, rather use the picture to trace in the program to generate your frd/zma files for your sims.

                        Not sure you can get FRD and ZMA for this driver.
