Hi Andrew,
The only time that data entry order becomes important is when you wish to convert driver ThieleSmall parameter values to their electromechanical equivalents. In this case, the correct sequence for entering the driver TS parameters is Sd, Cms, Mmd, Re, Bl, Rms. Use the Tab key or Enter key to automatically achieve this order. Kind regards, David

Specs were from this thread Advice required for low frequency bass.
I converted the RMS 8.29 g/s to equal .83 newton.sec/m that Hornresp uses. I did a search to see what the conversion was and it said /10 so thats what I did not really knowing if that was the right conversion. Hence my suggestion for a simple converter in the program for when the specs aren't provided in the same units, and not sure of the right conversion. Why Rg = 4 not sure the amps I have are capable of a 4ohm load.

Thanks guys for the help... slowly getting something that looks like a sub in Hornresp.

The existing Hornresp Calculate Parameter tool can be used to find the value of Rms as follows: 1. Set Cms = 3.10E04 m/N as given in the specifications sheet. 2. Doubleclick on the Rms value in Edit mode. 3. Enter fs = 24.4 Hz as given in the specifications sheet. 4. Enter Qms = 2.54 as given in the specifications sheet. The value of Rms is calculated by Hornresp to be 8.28 N.s/m. Note that this is very close to the numerical value given in the specifications sheet, but with entirely different units. The internationally accepted standard unit for mechanical resistance is newton.second/metre  I have no idea where g/s comes from. Kind regards, David

Hi David if someone like you doesn't know what hope does a newbie like me have
Funny but I kind of fell over that conclusion when I double clicked on one of the other boxes and it started asking me questions, and then it popped up 8.28, so I figured the conversion I found online must have been wrong or I interpreted it wrong. Tried to find the website that I found previously and can't, but I did find this in my travels... Lowther PM6A In BackLoaded Horns 5. RMS, Nm/s So far the most confusing. Newton * sec / meter, or NS/M For starters, many sources provide RMS in KG/S. 1 kg/s = 1000 g/s assuming N = G * M / S^2, we get 1 G/S = 1 N * S^2 / M * S = N * S / M. Thus, 1 kg/s = 1000 Ns/m But this is not all yet, as some sources provide Rms in Kg/s and some  Rme in N*s/m, and these do differ, yet not by the factor of 1000. Various sources claim Lowther RMS as .4 to .5 KG/S. What to do? when RMS = 400 entered in hornresp, SPL curve is clearly bad. So if 1 kg/s = 1000 g/s and 1 kg/s = 1000 Ns/m, then they are the same unit of measure.

I was a bit careless with my wording  I should perhaps have said "I have no idea where the value of g/s comes from" rather than "I have no idea where g/s comes from" :). The unit derivation itself is quite straightforward  but not quite as you have shown. Rms = N * s / m N = kg * m / (s ^ 2) Therefore Rms = [ kg * m / ( s ^ 2) ] * [ s / m ] Which can be simplified to Rms = kg / s by cancelling out m and s as appropriate. Note that 1 kg / s = 1 N * s / m not 1000 N * s / m It would seem that the specification sheet is in error  the 8.29 value given for Rms should be in units of kg/s, not g/s. Kind regards, David

It might be nice to have motor force displayed at the bottom of the screen when you hover over bl and re, I think it's BL squared /Re. From there force per area and acceleration are easy... Force per area and compression ratio could/would be an interesting metric to observe.
You have throat pressure already though.

Hey throat pressure is your friend. Very useful when designing near the bleeding edge of efficiency.

Making throat sound pressure data available is about as far as I am prepared to go :). Diaphragm peak velocity and acceleration values are included in the diaphragm displacement chart sample results. Kind regards, David
