    Hi all

    I am presently using Winisd to model the Titanic MkII in a sealed enclosure with a Q of around 0.7. The Titanic MkII white paper indicates that a sealed box with a Q of 0.6 will exceed X max at 400 wrms of drive. When I set up Winisd with a Q of 0.6 and 400 wrms of drive, it does not warn that X max will be exceeded. Am I missing something here or does Winisd not warn when X max will be exceeded?
    Regards,
    TCIII

    Well it depends on the frequency being played. At 150hz, it would probably take thousands of watts to exceed xmax in your enclosure. However, at 10hz, the driver would probably be toasted with 400 watts.

    Download the alpha of WinISD pro. It will tell you everything you need to know about excursion, etc. It isn't completely stable on my computer but it does offer all kinds of nifty graphs that aren't in the earlier one.

    I doesnt really warn you, you have to see by yourself. Do you use the Alpha PRO version? If not, use it, the normal version should never be used...
