WinSpeakerz vs others for measurement & crossovers
 
Iím about to start serious long-term speaker building and wanting systems for a few rooms, am intending to do 6 systems: 3 two ways, and 3 three ways. :bigeyes:
For box modelling I like Brian Steele's spreadsheets http://www.diysubwoofers.org/
over e.g. the slick but (on my current PC) slow Unibox.

Now I need software for measurement and the crossovers.
Speaker Workshop is popular, but a number of people (including a programmer) say itís hard to get to know.
My time is limited and Iím leaning a new area, and wanting to do a lot, so donít want to add to it with a non-intuitive interface/ so-so documentation. ;)

There's a summary here:
http://ldsg.snippets.org/appdx-c.php3 :bulb:
I know some of this is out of date (LAUD is no longer sold), but FWIW in the low price range, WinSpeakerz (from http://www.trueaudio.com who have a free RTA package) seems to have the edge, probably followed by LspCAD.

Any comments/ experience?

Thanks

SoundEasy, which is significantly better than winSpeakerz.

I have Speaker Work Shop use it day after day.
I have LSPCAD PRO and SE.
Go for the LSPCAD and use the measurment system with that.
If you want more get Lab.SE is a very complex system for those just getting into measurment systems.
You will here that from Honest people who have it and use it.

If you want the best of all them CLIO Win in a better Program by far.

I did here the new LSPCAD PRO is to be a steller system as well.

Just my 2 cents.
I now use MLSSA with earth works Mic and Pre amp.

Anyone else gonna bite???
 
I really would like opinions on usable measuremnt/ design software up to about $150.
Alas LSPCAD PRO, CLIO Win & SoundEasy are too dear.
Also SoundEasy I've heard has a long learning curve
Speaker WorkShop I beleve is awkward with 3 ways, and not that user friendly

Anyone :bigeyes: used the bassic version of LSPCAD or WinSpeakerz???

this is a german shareware. but is available in english, too. it coasts 28$ and IMHO it's worth a try.

Speaker workshop is actually fairly easy to use, but the calibration and understanding what it does are the hardest parts and there is little documentation to help you out. It came out when sound cards were far inferior to what they are now, and most of the frustration came from that era.

Winspeakers is a box modeler and no better than what you are already using.

TrueRTA will help EQ and find room problems, but it is not a measurement package for designing crossovers.

SoundEasy is not easy. As far as nonintuitive user interfaces, it is probably the worst. It is however, VERY powerful if you know how to use it.

I've heard good things about LSPCAD and audiotester, but never used them.

What I have learned about testing speakers is that it is about 90% knowledge between the ears and 10% equipment.

Just about any program will collect and correlate data for you. However, most of your effort will be in setting up and collecting that data and getting meaningful results. There is a lot of knowledge involved in the process of doing that and no software package, including the best, has that inside the shrink-wrap.
