Look I have literally just installed Vituix and have only watched a few videos on how to make a speaker (eq and shit) so I can agree I have no idea what i'm doing. I'm doing this for a project for some reason so bear with me...

I have chosen some drivers on parts express and downloaded the files that give me the frequency and impedance responses and tried to put them into Vituix but it just wont show me a graph. I've spent a good two hours on this but maybe i'm just being an idiot or its the wrong files or something.

Once I can see the graphs i'm sure I can figure some stuff out.


Any help at all would be amazing,

Many thanks,

Theo

Run a "wire" from the driver to the positive leg on the crossover tab.

It probably took me half an hour to figure that out the first time I tried VCAD.


Thank you so much, that wasn't so hard!

Also, if I want to have two tweeters and two woofers in my design, do I add the same files to another driver tab or just use one set of files?

VCAD is actually collection of modules for different tasks. The user must learn to understand a lot of loudspeaker design to use it productively.

How to start working with VituixCAD

I’ve watched a bit of Kirby Meets Audio on YouTube and I’m sort of going through the process with him. I have played a lot of music and understand what you want to get out of a crossover and what the graph should look like. I’m not hoping for some professional grade speaker system but more something to use every now and then for parties that sounds reasonably good and is relatively loud.

I’m just going to mess around with it a bit and see how close I can get it to what I want.
