    I noticed this on the back of my Parts Express catalog and was curious if anyone has used it and how well/easy/accurately it works:

    Dayton Woofer Tester 2.

    It sounds pretty easy to use and the price doesn't seem too bad.

    Check out lansing heritage forums for a dude named Zilch. He's been posting results of LE-14 woofers and the effects of hardening surrounds raising the FS.

    Thanks, Colin... it looks like he's able to get quite a bit of data out of the thing.

    I'm looking to mainly use it to get accurate T/S parameters to calculate maximally flat Vb's. But, it sounds like it can do a lot more.

    Plus, the software is pretty benign (no registry key edits), so, I could load it on my work laptop for greater mobility... which'd be perfect for doing measurements in my garage or basement... as opposed to my bedroom. [​IMG]
