VituixCAD via Parallels, trying to teach this old dog new tricks...

edited June 20 in DIY

John H,
Now that I have a new iMac and VituixCAD via Parallels seems to be working flawlessly, I’d like to know if you still have the files you created for the Beyma 5CX200Fe from my ‘circuit design issue / question' discussion?

I’d like to start playing with VituixCAD and thought a great place to start would be with the Beyma coax to go through the process, see what I ended up with, and begin learning how to manage this program and component changes and affects.

Thanks, and any and all suggestions welcome.



  • Yikes, that's over a year old. I'll look later tonight.

    You'd really be better off measuring. The real power of VituixCAD is being able to use multiple off axis measurements.

     John H, thanks to JP I did get that email
  • I can send you some measurement data if you just want some real data to start with. I can send you raw impulse response files from one of my speakers so you can go through the process from scratch apart from taking the physical measurement.

    Give me a week or two and I should have a complete data set for my latest creation as well that I may be willing to share.

    I'm not deaf, I'm just not listening.
  • A good way to start is with Reid's (dcibel) "Virtuix simulation without measurement" pdf. I found it an easy way to get familiar with the different Vituix tools before using actual measurements. There are also two projects that come with Vituix (a two way and a three way) that you can open and inspect.

  • John,
    It's a long shot for sure. The drivers are packed up neatly in my new build, so I'll try sending Beyma and/or the guys at US Speaker an email for the freq and imp files and see if they will release them.

    dcibel- That would be great, then we can possibly later review how my came out vs yours.

    Can direct messages / files be sent via this discussion group - or do you need my email?

    Ed, thanks.

  • The files will be too large to post here I think, send me a PM with your email and I'll set up a Google Drive share for you.

    In the meantime, here's the document Ed referenced, if you wish to go down that route please read through the first page to understand the limitations.

    I'm not deaf, I'm just not listening.
  • Here are the files I found. I did not check them

     John H, thanks to JP I did get that email
  • While waiting to see if I can get the files from US Speaker / Beyma (John I'm having issues with loading your files, I'll keep working) I used files for the Dayton CX120 to start playing.

  • first attempt Xover ~3100, I'll next try to move it out towards 4400+

    Best practice of parallel vs series notch filters / when and specific issues per these two Xover designs?
