Hmmm. Low Q is not really an issue, but high Q might cause some issues you don't see in just the summed response. Much over 1.5 I think I might want to know. I just added a segment for second order electrical to my sheets. First is pretty obvious. Third electrical I need to study as I don't know the equation off the top of my head.

Anyway, Thanks very much for this. It is tons easier to get going than my expensive tool and gets me to the listening/tweaking quite quickly.

That's on a list of things to do already. I'll implement it once my summer projects are wrapped up.

2. It would be really nice to have the option of displaying output phase and output SPL on the same graph, or at least the same screen. This was one of the best aspects of PCD, I thought. Maybe all the graphs should be able to pop out?.
The full version (PSD-Pro) has a separate module for viewing the system response, and there is more flexibility for showing and hiding the chart data. Some of that approach may get pushed to PSD-Lite--need to think about this.

Anyway, nice work on this so far.
Thanks.

But the full version is not something that is available at this point, right?

REW measurements do not work on PSD.
Here is a line from REW: 20,291 22,377 25,602
line from frd that works: 20.35284 59.67033 0
I have gotten used to REW so it would be nice to get it working Thanks for the software!

PSD-Lite currently treats commas as delimiters instead of decimal marks--this allows using a comma separated variable (CSV) format. However, someone else already commented on this and when I looked into it I was surprised to find out how many countries outside the US use commas as decimal points (more than those who use the period).

It's an easy fix--I'll make the change in a future release. I'll probably keep support for commas as delimiters as an option.

Reporting back. Did a couple more designs using measured in-box response (HOLM & WT-II) feed into PSD. Tweak the model, build and measure. Very good correlation. Job well done.

That's good to hear. I've been working on house projects this summer (replacing the wood siding), but I'm anxious to get back to the advanced versions of this program. PSD-Lite is the "core" set of tools that I needed to be working properly, so I'm starting to fell like I'm "done" with those tools and can move on to more interesting (for me, at least) features.

BTW, building your own scaffolding out of 2x4's is not as hard as you might expect--just takes time and some nerve to use it:
