Measurements Measurements Measurements

Adding yet another variable (current vs. voltage driven) sure makes for a lot more measurements.

I survived figuring out Soundeasy's quirks once again with minimal bursts of cursing.

The following are the 3 driver's frequency response at varying levels of current drive vs. voltage.

For the woofer I'll clearly have to limit myself to more voltage drive given the peak at resonance, but for the mid tweet I can go current drive easily.

I'm not sure where I got the idea that current drive altered phase. The phase for the mid and tweet are identical for current vs. voltage and the woofer is close enough to measurement error.
