    Hi, I am a first time DIY'er, although I have built speakers from kits and such. I have had some trouble figuring basic things such as power handling, sensitivity and crossover design for my proposed speaker project from the DIY books I have already purchased. Is there any software package that can calculate these things effectively other than something like LEAP, which costs over $400? Also, do I have to import actual driver data to all software or is there a place where I can download or load driver data. Thanks.

    The standard LspCAD package with JustMLS is only $129 plus shipping. Contact Phil at [email protected] if you are interested, he can give you more details.

    Speaker Workshop is a pretty good speaker design tool, and free. It'll do T/S measurements, acoustic measurements, crossover design, etc. If you don't have the drivers in hand you can use SPLTracer to create frequency response and impedance data and import them into SW. Priced right and definitely worth a look into.
    HTH,

    A second vote for LspCAD. It includes JustMLS if you want to do some basic measurements

    Here's another good suite of tools from Dr. Murphy.
    Winspeakerz
    He also authored some new RTA software that looks pretty good.
