You can use ARTA, HOLMImpulse or REW among other to give you the FRD files you want. Don't forget the impedance files! ZMA

Yup (but don't forget Omnimic too!). Easiest way to measure for ZMA file is the DATS or a Woofer Tester.

How are you printing? Grid dots shouldn't be there (I don't see them when I print here)?

Maybe try this: File -> Snapshot -> To Picture File -> As Shown, then save as type .png

Open the png file in PaintBrush (or other graphics app) and print from there. Should be crisp and clear, no dots or smearing. (you could also save as a .pdf file, to be even more clear, but then you have to load Adobe to print).

or: File -> Snapshot -> To Windows Clipboard -> As vector graphic; and then paste it into your graphics app (such as Clipboard)

I'm running on Ubuntu using the PlayOnLinux utility.
XSim itself runs very well - I suspect that the printout function is messed up somewhere between PlayOnLinux apis and Linux. Please don't worry about it.
Not a biggie for me.

@Bill -

Thanks for the measurement and sim writeup!
Very clearly explained. Should be a sticky somewhere!

There's a new update of Xsim now up -- http://libinst.com/Xsim/XSimSetup.exe

Mostly some bug fixes, a few new things -- derive a driver's impedance phase from only the magnitude of a ZMA file (so you could just make a curve from points read off a manufacturer's data sheet) The "file" curve in the Frequency Response phase can now be offset up or down with a dB offset scale control. Curve colors changed a bit for better visibility. Some hint bubbles pop up to show new users how to do some non-obvious functions (the hints can be turned off).

Note: Xsim has (even before the update) an "auto-updater", which I found out is HATED by the antivirus program Avast! Apparently Xsim's wanting to go out on the net to download the update gives Avast a scare. You might have to turn off your antivirus program for a few minutes to let it complete if your current install of Xsim tries to do its own update and your antivirus is particularly intrusive.
