There are many.
Here's a couple forum searches:

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/searc...der=descending
http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/searc...der=descending

Free:
Speaker Workshop

$$$:
ARTA - there is a limited free version
Soundeasy
Praxis
CLIO
LMS
Sample Champion
ETF
SMaart
MLSSA
TrueRTA

You can also record impulses and analyze with a free WAV editor or FFT program, but this is tedious and no longer necessary...

soundeasy is designed and manufactured in melb., GREAT software, poor support, excellent features, about AUD$300 not cheap.

if you want to design many different types of speakers this is the s/w to get.

SUPPORT Aust. designed product.

I use the bought version of ARTA suite, both at home and for my measurement of PA speakers at work. These programs (ARTA, STEPS and LIMP) are remarkable value for money.

For quick pink noise measurements, I also have the 1/24th octave ($99) version of True-RTA. This is a useful program, but nothing like the bargain that is ARTA.

Another good software package that can do speaker measurements and much more is AudioTester. Good price at 35.00 Euro.

I've never been able to get that to work right for acoustic measurement and the vendor hasn't responded to my cries for help. Works great for amp measurements, though.

I have had some luck with audiotester doing speaker measurements, some odd results here and there I seem to recall, but I think Arta is far better for this.
