Hi bwaslo

Just finished building a new loudspeaker.... A three way with SEAS Tweeter, Audax mid and CQuenze bass.

For measurements I used REW with it's mic UMIK-1.

The frd zma files were extracted and input in XSIM..... after several interactions I was finally satisfied with the sound and made a final measurement with the filter in place....

The resulting file corresponds really well with the calculated response... this combination of software is incredibly precise.... Thank you very much for your work

hi RCruz,

I had the exact same setup like yours REW and UMIK-1 to measure the driver.
How do you extract zma file from REW measurement?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom

Please read the LIMP user manual on how to build an interface rig to connect your PC to the loudspeaker for impedance measurements.

After building the interface rig you can use it with LIMP or with REW in the same manner.

Hello

I use Xsim for the first time, and I'm trying to do quasi 12 db (quasi second order) series 3 ways crossover, crossover frequencies at 150 hz and 2500 hz, but I have few difficulty to succeed. I include the Xsim simulation file, anybody can help me ?

Thank

Bye

Gaetan

like the function in vituixcad, would it be possible to implement same function so one only need to click on a component and use the mouse wheel to increase/decrease its value, this works very nice in vituixcad and speeds up the manual crossover optimization work

It's been in Xsim since the beginning, left click the component, click tune.
All the values in Xsim can be rolled up and down with the mouse wheel.

Gaetan You need to include .frd and .zma for every driver.

yes, but vituixcad works slightly different. with vituixcad you just mark the component (one click) and then using the mouse wheel. so with vituixcad there is less clicking and therefor it is little faster
