LibreOffice has limited support for VBA. It won't run the macros in PCD, WBCD, Baffle Diffraction or the Frequency Response Modeler.

The Woofer Box and Circuit Designer (WBCD) was "converted" to .NET several years ago. The .NET version has evolved separately, but it still uses the same Benson model that Jeff Bagby implemented in his original Excel version. Converting the Excel equations proved to be a laborious task, so I wrote completely new versions of PCD, Baffle Diffraction and Frequency Response Modeler. They are implemented differently but should provide the same results. Part of the new design approach was to integrate these tools into a single program, where calculation results from one module are passed along to the Crossover Module. This results in an easy-to-use integrated tool that does measurement file processing, Box modeling, Baffle modeling, Amp/EQ modeling and Crossover Design.

This integrated program is PSD-Lite. It is still a Beta release but it is fully functional and reasonably mature. The final version is getting a Thiele-Small database--it will be available soon.

PSD-Lite can be downloaded here: http://www.audiodevelopers.com/Softw...Lite/setup.exe

This version of the program is free, and it will remain so. There is a "Pro" version with more features and an "Active" version that can directly control DSP chips.

I've used PCD and PSD-Lite, PSD-Lite is just as easy to use, if not easier.

Neil Davis are you saying that PCD lite will run with Libre Office. I have tried the others with Open Office, Gnumeric and the spreadsheet in the Ashampoo office set =- all to no avail. I lost the copy of MS Office I had when the hard drive failed and didn"t have a copy of it - must have lost it in a house shift about 18 months ago. As I am on a basic Australian pension some of the programs which may be cheap to others are quite expensive to!. I thank you all for your help.

PSD-Lite is a .NET click-once application. No Excel or Office of any sort required. All you need is .NET 4.0, and the installer will take care of that for you.

Boxsim (free stand-alone program) can do the same things as PCD. It is a bit more confusing, maybe, on account of incorporating more features/variables. I use both pretty regularly.

Thanks Neil Davis and dumptruck. I now have PSD lite and have had boxsim for awhile so I guess I don't need much else. ABC dipole works OK with libre Office too so that's a big help.
