BassBox Pro V6.0.18 (speaker Enclosure Design Program)
Version 3 $119.00* FAQs SupportX•over Pro is an innovative passive network design program. It can help you design a 2-way or 3-way passive crossover network, a high-pass, band-pass or low-pass filter, an impedance equalization network, an L-pad and a series or parallel notch filter. With its internal Thiele-Small modeling engine and impedance equalization, X•over Pro provides professional results without requiring you to make complex measurements of each driver.
BassBox Pro v6.0.18 (speaker enclosure design program)
X•over Pro scales its capabilities to fit the quantity of available driver information. A crossover network, filter or L-pad can be designed with just the impedance of each driver. With sufficient Thiele-Small parameters the program can also design impedance equalization networks and it can display the response in its four performance graphs.
Design WizardBassBox Pro includes a powerful Design Wizard (shown below) to help new users quickly design a speaker. It can start with either the driver or the box and then it will walk you through BassBox Pro as it prompts you for information in an orderly progression. In this way it serves as a "smart" assistant to help you use the program.
Software package includes everything one needs for simulating and designing a loudspeaker.Additional to crossover simulator, there is enclosure simulator, diffraction simulator,response tracer, response merger, response calculator, auxiliary calculator and FFT tool included.
This user guide is a chronological walkthrough on how to design a loudspeaker with VituixCAD.Commonly, design process starts with deciding enclosure size, drivers, radiator type, alignment etc.Enclosure tool is used for simulating enclosures, different radiator types and alignments.Next step is to have comprehensive set of acoustic and electrical measurements of the construction.Diffraction and Merger tools are used for combining far field and near field responses.After these prerequisites are met, simulation phase can be started.Whether your goal is to design a speaker with or without interim listening tests, you'll need quality control of some sort.Some prefer their ears, some prefer measurements.If a loudspeaker measures perfectly, but sounds worse than anything you've ever heard, something is terribly wrong.This guide will not teach you how to listen a loudspeaker, but will cover basic QC steps.
Save baffle project by pressing Save button.File extension is .vxb, but it's human-readable xml file containing main dimensions and location of corners and drivers.You can print the file for helping final enclosure design.
The idea arose when as a musician (bass guitar) and as a sound director I listened to the general (mixed)sound from two-way and three-way speakers. There were no micro details, natural timbres, attack(increase) and decrease (fading reverberation) in time and space. There was no sense of a specific scene and no directives fromindividual instruments and vocals. The big ambition for me was after reading a study by R. Heiser and later Lipshitz, Vanderkooy, Kreskovsky.F.Brooke's articles "Le filtre ideal" in L'AUDIOPHILE was no small stimulus and last but not least. The Loudspeaker Cookbook by V. Dickason has been mydesktop reading for many years. Of course - the biggest challenge was the "hidden" delays (resonances) of the filters, higher than the first order.This technology is very important, but it is not a wizard panacea for all other problems and omissions.We can not talk about good Timing - if there is a band with reverse polarity.But it is not superfluous to know - before measuring the impedances and frequency responses for the future project, an appropriate selection of speakers must be made,incl. preliminary solution for optimal shear frequencies. Ie - together with the choice we specify: The self resonance of each high frequency (of courseand middle driver) must be one / two octaves farther (down) from the filter frequency.The rule is general alignment according to the quietest speaker. Ensuring flat (constant) impedancefor each filter - too. Working with a simulation program is essential (help).Pre-planning the possibility for precise movement between the centers of the adjacent drivers (speakers) through separate enclosures (boxes) - mandatory.Precise observance of results (values) from the filters, including displacement (delay) - too.
