WinISD Pro 0.50 Alpha 7

A free speaker designer software app that also allows you to calculate a few different types of filters in order to create complex projects
WinISD Pro provides you with designing tools to help you quickly and easily turn raw materials into loudspeaker enclosures, whether they are basic cabinets or complicated woofer boxes. A loudspeaker is an electro-acoustic transducer that engenders sound in replication to an electrical audio signal input.

Design speaker enclosures in a few steps

The most prevalent form of loudspeaker utilizes a paper cone fortifying a voice coil electromagnet acting on a permanent magnet, but many other types exist. Where high fidelity reproduction of sound is required, multiple loudspeakers may be utilized, each reproducing a component of the audible frequency range.

How does it work

Individual electrodynamic drivers provide optimal performance within a limited pitch range. Various drivers such as subwoofers, woofers, mid-range drivers, and tweeters are generally amalgamated into a complete loudspeaker system to provide performance beyond that constraint.

Utilized in multi-driver verbalizer systems, the crossover is a subsystem that disserves the input signal into different frequency ranges suited to each driver. The drivers receive power only in their utilizable frequency range (the range they were designed for), thereby reducing distortion in the drivers and interference between them.

Most loudspeaker systems consist of drivers mounted in an enclosure, or cabinet. The role of the enclosure is to provide a place to physically mount the drivers, and to avert sound waves emanating from the back of a driver from interfering destructively with those from the front. The simplest driver mount is a flat panel with the drivers mounted in apertures in it.

Attention to detail is required

WinISD Pro can help you achieve the perfect loudspeaker enclosure; however, some technological knowledge is required and that particular amount can vary depending on the complexity of the project. As such a type of cabinet is not just a box with some loudspeakers within, you have to take into consideration every little detail, from mounting the speakers to wiring connections, filters and even chassis hardening or binding posts.

Get informed before getting started

When it comes to building your dream loudspeaker enclosure, make sure you first have the required know-how for the idea you have in mind. WinISD Pro cannot help you if you lack that. It can only ease the process and aid you in making the right decision whenever you feel like trapped between two or more professional decisions.

What's New in This Release:
  • New:
  • If project file is changed, program now asks if user wants to save the project. (Juha)
  • Added voice coil thermal simulation fields. Now you can simulate effect of voice coil heating based on temperature rise that you specify. You can also specify resistance temperature coefficient of voice coil material. (Janne)
  • Added several alignment options for closed and vented box. Program now suggests different alignments based on Qts value. (Janne)
