Great little sub Tony :) I don't know how you do it, simple but absolutely stunning cabs.

How do you guys get real world plots? Using Smaart? I want to do my 12" white subs as they sound lovely and drop low.

SamV,  I suppose 20 years as an industrial designer must help + I like to keep things nice and simple as long as it does not inhibit performance.

The main tool I use for quick plots is Real_RTA  I find it just as accurate as the more expensive programmes that I have access too.  I use it with a berry ECM8000 as I mainly do comparison checks for which this is perfectly OK.

An Earthworks mike is probably on the cards in the next few months.

But does it supply the plots in graph form?

Yes it does, you can save the plots to a series of memory positions for comparisons. 

If you download the demo version you can see how it works but only in 1 octave resolution. It will work with your laptop mic if you have one (not for proper use).

If you register with these guys you can also download the latest version of Room EQ Wizard 5 for free which also does what you want.

I have proper mics I can use which are flatter and more directional than the ecm8000. I'll check out the software.
