Hello,
Sorry to see your message only today... I'm not in the Alps, I'm living near Nancy. The 05 is because of the year. If you want to test the optimization tool, I need to know your Site Code and Machine Id, wich are available when you click on the "optimize" button in the software (Simulation and optimization interface).
I you have any question, feel free to ask it...

I want to make crossover for 2 way PA cabinet. Do i need to measure frequency & phase response of the drivers installed in the cabinet or without cabinet? Further if need to measure just drivers without cabinet, in that case the compression driver frequency response is to be measured with the horn fitted?

You have to measure the drivers in the cabinet in order to take the cabinet effect into account and to build a crossover that match this effect.

"Is it ok to take impedance curve of compression driver fitted on a horn?"
I would give you the same answer : you have to get the impedance of the driver in the cabinet with the horn because it impacts the impedance curve.

If the two woofers are in line, you have to measure the two woofers at the same time, that is to say : mesure between the minus of the first woofer and the plus of the second, nd link the woofers with the other plus and minus... Then you have to consider you have only one driver.
If they are in parallel, but on the same crossover filter : measure them at the same time too... But take the plus and the minus of only one driver (the second driver is directly linked to the first)
If they are not or will not be linked to the same crossover : measure them separately.
