Perhaps you can get somthing to open MS Excel files, in which case you may be able to use Unibox. I think there is a simplified online WinISD version which you can use.

Since I converted to Mac, I looked for a simulation software with the result of using
a PC simulator :-(
If you find something suitable, I would like to join, but .....

I use MacSpeakerz -- runs in Classic, but does an OK job. Not free thou. I also have a bunch of spreadsheets (in Trapeze) that is really what i use.

If i could figure out how to spare the time, i'd love to sit down and write a piece of OS X software ... i have some pretty good ideas floating around in my head.

I wonder how hard it would be to port these programs to Mac and Linux platforms? Probably not all that hard. A Mac or Linux version of Audua's SpeakerWorkshop would be nice. The only thing I don't like about SpeakerWorkshop is that it makes you keep all your windows on its little workspace. I have dual monitors and I'd like to be able to drag the frequency response window onto my other monitor and make changes and see them instantly reflected. In fact, how about sliders you can drag to change things like box volume, crossover point, and individual component values? Planet10, if you can write one of these and keep the price reasonable ($20 would be fine) then I think there's lots of people who would snap it right up. I just got done learning to write programs in C for the UNIX command line interface but I don't have the skills yet to write a windows program with a GUI and all that.

A few weeks back, Karoliina started a thread on exactly that topic. You can find it here and a followup here.

Hope this helps.

BTW, I'm also looking for a sim program that runs on OS X. I've got an old PC laptop that I would like to use only to program my amateur radios. Right now, I use it mainly for simulations as I'm not a big fan of running Virtual PC on my 400 MHz G4.

Been trying to get Unibox running on my Mac with OfficeX, but the VB scripts seem to be broken. Shame.

Go to www.diysubwoofers.org and roll your own...all the equations that are in most free software are there.

Brian has a simple spreadsheet called ported.xls that would probably run in Excel for apples....if anything would, it should.

Looks good, thanks for the reference Ron. I really should get out to more diy sites really, but this place just seems to take up so much time!

Sure, the nice thing about it is that it is unlocked. You can unprotect the sheets without a password and then delete or add stuff as you please.

Brian Steele has a few simple neat Excel tricks in there, too.
