I am still unable to download Hornresp from home due to my dial up connection. You may remember we discussed this before and there was never a resolution. I tried again just now to be sure, it downloaded 295K, said it was done, and when I try to install it gives error message "Zip file is damaged, truncated or has been changed since it was created. If you downloaded this file try downloading again." I'll download 28.30 as soon as I get to a high speed connection and comment on that version.
You should check with your lokal ISP. The problem seems to persist on your side - serverside the infrastrukture changed many times so drastically, even the storage location (it was australia, then US, now Europe) that the "error" can only be on the "receiver side".
Try installing a download manager for these kinds of things. This way, if a download breaks up, it will be picked up automaitcally again where it last stopped and will be finished. Getright for example will do a good job, ... there are so many out there....

Thanks again for the effort but Hotmail must really hate Hornresp...

When I opened your email I got the message "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments in this message because they appear to be unsafe."

Hotmail thinks things are unsafe all the time but usually gives the option to download anyway. Not in this case, it's unblockable. I tried to forward the email to my gmail account but Hotmail says "Warning Files Setup1.exe are blocked from forwarding."

I've never had this issue before. Anyway, more info in my next post...

First, some brief notes on the issue.

1. I never had a problem with downloading Hornresp until David McBean notified us that dial up users might have problems. At that point I did indeed start to have problems.

2. When Hornresp switched hosting services I tried again but the problem persisted, exactly the same as it had been, in exactly the same fashion.

3. At that point I assumed the problem had to be on my end so I tried downloading Hornresp with at least 3 different computers that I use regularly, with several different browsers. The problem persisted on all computers, exactly the same. None of them were able to download Hornresp with a dial up connection but they all work with high speed.

4. I've never had any problems downloading anything before, even files as large as 40 mb on dial up. Only Hornresp refuses to download.

5. Firefox is one of the browsers that I use, and it has a weird kind of a download manager built in. It doesn't matter when downloading Hornresp, I get a message that says the download is complete even though it isn't, so there's nothing to try to resume. The only option is try to redownload, but it does the same thing every time.

6. I had no problem whatsoever downloading the Hornresp setup files that soho54 posted here for me a couple of days ago.

7. About an hour ago, after Hotmail refused to allow me access to GM's attachment I got frustrated and dragged my "just in case everything else fails" computer out of the back of the closet, a very old Pentium 1 with Internet Explorer 6 that I haven't even looked at in several years. With that computer I was able to download Hornresp from David McBean's host with no problem.

So the problem is definitely on my end, although I have no idea what it might be. My computers are all healthy, I format and reinstall Windows regularly to keep everything smooth. I might try to figure out what the issue is at some point, but I have a working solution atm so I'm not too worried about it.

I'll play with v28.30 tonight and comment on the sliders later on.

Thanks for all the responses.

Yup, it downloads in full with no problem at all. (I didn't try to open it yet, but opening it isn't the issue.) It seems I can download Hornresp from anywhere except David McBean's host or Hotmail.

The difference is probably due to how he zipped it.

I finally got a couple of minutes to test drive v28.30, not as much as I'd like but I was pretty busy this evening and I wanted to report back today.

At first glance I like the sliders in 28.30 much better than 28.20. The old slider behavior was fine, the current version is fine, I just didn't like 28.20 at all.

Thanks.

Hi just a guy,

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear that the Hornresp Loudspeaker Wizard area slider operation is now more acceptable to you. Realising that Version 28.20 had significant shortcomings I tried to integrate the best features from all the previous releases into Version 28.30.

Once you become more familiar with it, hopefully you will like the latest release best of all :-).

Kind regards,

David

Default How do I use HornResp to match dispersion at crossover point?

Hello David McBean and all others,

First of all: Thanks for a truly great piece of software!

Now to my question: I would like to know how to use HornResp to match the dispersion at the crossover point (e.g. 1300 Hz) between, say, a non CD mid horn and a non CD tweeter horn. For instanse, if I have a LeCleach flared or tractrix flared mid circular horn with a Fc=200 Hz, then how do I "see" the dispersion at different frequencies?

I the “Help” section I can see that this should be possible using [Tools] – [Directivity Response], but unfortunately the features provided does make much sense to me (which I am sure has more to do with my understanding of the issue, than limitations of the software).

Thanks a lot!

Best regards
Peter
