For WinISD Pro the 'help' - 'getting started' - 'Using WinISD pro' helps a lot. 'Entering new driver data' is a good place to start.

I should also have mentioned that there are A LOT of designs for this driver.

At first I went to help and it didn't work. I had to download a file to be able to read the help on win 7.

Thanks!

I'll look for more examples. I like the looks of th eone you sent and it looks like it might be a bit hard for me to make, but would be a good cabinet building experience, so I'm interested. I'm also interested in listening to a full range single driver speaker.. so I may end up building these and the ZMB4's.

Especially since the speakers that really amazed me and got me interested in hifi were Omega Super5's which are a single driver

If there was a simple cabinet I could just follow along with that kit, that would work for me.
Play around with the EL70 in WinISD. You'll need to enter the TS data first, eezy peezy. You select "New Project", then select "new" on the right of the dialog box. Now select "Parameters" at the top of the "driver editor" box, and enter in the TS values for the EL70. You will notice that the program will calculate some values without you entering a value. This will avoid errors when it's time to "save" the driver data. Now the driver will be in your database, and you can start a new project.

I'll bet real money Dave's Mar-Kel70 will dig deeper in the bass that the Omega Super 5's, looking at their web page specs.

I added the EL70 but don't see values for Z or dia in this file http://www.creativesound.ca/pdf/CSS-...ata-080909.pdf just leave them blank? or do they have other names

Z is 6.0 ohms, which is automatically calculated when you enter a value for Re, I think.
