  • frd, zma, and MORE specifications: Chime In!

    All,

    We are working to provide everyone with the best data for the drivers that Parts Express carries. This includes Dayton Audio and buyouts. We know the more information provided to you allows you to make a better informed buying decision. We would like to give you as much information on the speakers as our resources allow.

    Please right click and save the zip file below. It contains the additional specification files that we are working to provide you with using the example driver RS150-8.

    http://www.daytonaudio.com/newspecs/RS150-8.zip

    This is an extensive project here, so we appreciate your feedback and suggestions on the direction we have taken. Please post your comments/suggestions or send an email to: [email protected]

    Thanks!

    Any possibility Sd could be included (in cm^2)?

    The rest looks great, Thanks!

      Nice indeed Rich.

      Those using the FRD files will need to process them for minimum phase to use in PCD, but that's no big deal.

        Just another reason why Parts Express is leading the pack in this market. I'd love to see this information included in the PE driver specifications. Awesome Rich !

          Thank you. It is clear that PE is listening to their customers!

          I agree with mark, aside from SD, I am unsure much is missing form what seems to be a very complete data package for drivers!

            Well, it does list D=104mm, which would allow you to calculate area.

            85 cm^2 is what I come up with.

              Great job, I do not believe that there is another company that puts forth so much effort to support the DIY community. This is one of the many reasons I recommend your company to people.

              A few easy and valuable pieces of info to add to all the measurements would be the measurement conditions of each, such as:

              1. baffle size.
              2. enclosure size(if one was used).
              3. was the driver broken in, and if so, what method was used.
              4. anechoic or semi-anechoic measurement?

                Outstanding!

                If you could provide test data for all the Dayton and buyout drivers comparable to the RS150-8 example that you submitted, that would be an invaluable service.

                I haven't been a PartsExpress customer for long, but I've got to say that I'm highly impressed with the quality of customer service here. Add in the extensive product selection, generally very good pricing, and free shipping on larger orders, and I'm a very happy customer. This new data service would be icing on the cake. Thank you.

                  Well done guys, and I know how big of a PITA this will be but I am sure sales of buyouts etc, will increase to experienced designers if there are basic measurements provided.

                  P.S. The off axis measurements are a nice touch

                      Thanks. Lots of effort here.

                      I told you they read this forum.

                              The frd pics are COLORED, so the automatic SPLTrace (SPLCopy?) should work very well with that (in case someone wants offaxis response to work with).

                              It looks like the F/Z data files already have the headers/footers removed, so that's GREAT!

                              Is the phase that's IN there a standard "time of flight" for all drivers? One meter I'd assume, surface mounted (the way Darren used to do it)?
