Just a thought...did you double-click the "Nd" field until it said "TH"? The wizard isn't available until you do this.

I just found something curios.

After simulating a TH, I entered the TH-wizard, played around and left the dialog with "cancel". When I now go into the SPL-Chart and get a sample of SPL, it shows strange values:
Click the image to open in full size.
Corresponding curve is (don´t mind it, it´s just "in progress")
Click the image to open in full size.
If I recalculate, SPL is ok again:
Click the image to open in full size.

Minor, but I thought I mention it

Hi Sabbelbacke,

Many thanks, I am very pleased that you have taken the trouble to mention it! No bug in Hornresp is minor, as far as I am concerned :-). I will investigate (I think I already know what might be causing the problem), and let you know when it is fixed.

Thanks again, and please keep up the excellent bug-finding work!

Kind regards,

David

Hi aznboi3644,

That is excellent news, well done!

I knew you would get there eventually - it just takes a little time to understand how the program operates.

Optimising the dimensions of the tapped horn for a given driver is the difficult bit - hopefully the TH Wizard will make the task a little easier for you.

Kind regards,

David

whats difficult for me is having to keep coverting from metric to inches lol...luckily my cell phone has a unit converter.

I still just need to memorize what all the L1, S12, L34 means...I think I may get the hang of it in a week or two.

All you really need to remember is that 1 inch = 2.54 centimetres :-).

There is no L1 or S12 :-).

S1, S2, S3, S4 and S5 are the cross-sectional areas at the intermediate "throat" and "mouth" points of a four-segment horn.

L12 is the axial length between S1 and S2
L23 is the axial length between S2 and S3
L34 is the axial length between S3 and S4
L45 is the axial length between S4 and S5

When the mouse pointer is moved over any text box on the Input Parameters window, a description is displayed in the status bar panel at the bottom of the window. It should not be necessary to memorise anything.

Kind regards,

David

Default Hornresp companion program

For your interest, I have made a little program to make it easier to move Hornresp records from one computer to another. It is called HornrespMerge, and can be downloaded (free of course!) from my homepage, in the 'SW and Tools' section.

The program can extract one or more records from the usual Hornresp.dat data file, and store it/them in a separate file, or it can take a separate record and insert it into the Hornresp.dat file. Records can be moved up and down, and deleted.

Nothing happens with the Hornresp.dat file until you press Save, and if you inadvertedly delete a record, you can just reload.

I created this program because I have Hornresp on several computers, and often I just want to move a single record from one computer to the other, not the entire data file. Hornresp is a great program (I have been using it for about 7-8 years now), I was just missing this little thing .

As far as I know it is safe to use, but to be absolutely sure, please take a backup copy of the Hornresp.dat file before using it the first time. It has not been tested with every computer configuration yet . Also, please note that it can not run simultaneous with Hornresp.

The decimal separator problem has been taken care of, so it should work with all language settings.

Hope you find it useful, and please report back any bugs. The program has a help file that explains the operation, and where you can also find my email address.

Best regards,

Bjørn

NB: I checked with David that it was OK to post this here .
