Dayton Audio WT3 Woofer Tester
Dayton Audio's WT3 makes measuring loudspeaker driver parameters easier, faster and more accurate than ever before. While previous generation woofer testers took around 6 minutes to measure 30 impedance points, the new WT3 measures over 30,000 data points in just a few seconds using a new swept sine technique that is only available with the WT3. The result is a very high-resolution impedance measurement that allows the extraction of an extremely accurate driver parameter set, suitable for the most critical loudspeaker design work. Free air parameters are measured in just a few seconds. VAS can be measured by traditional test box, added mass or, more conveniently, just by specifying the 1W/1m SPL of the driver. No other loudspeaker impedance tester is as fast, versatile, or as easy to use as the WT3. WT3 hardware consists of a compact USB interface unit with attached USB cable and alligator clip leads. It's manufactured on state-of-the-art equipment using precision surface mount components. Windows compatible software provides an easy-to-use interface that allows you to be up and running very quickly. You can save as many as 20 impedance measurements per project and then overlay and compare any or all of the measurements to create a custom report complete with all your notes. Perfect for quick incoming QC inspections.
Dayton Audio's WT3 just got better—the same great features as before, but now perfect for incoming or end-of-line QC inspections! DIY speaker builders will also find the new capabilities useful when comparing multiple drivers for line array type systems. Try a WT3 and build better speaker systems!
The primary application for WT3 will be testing raw drivers in order to gather the speaker parameters required for speaker design, but loudspeaker designers can also use WT3 to verify the resonance and Q of completed loudspeaker systems. You can even measure the 1 kHz inductance of your crossover inductors and the impedance response of complete multi-way loudspeaker systems.
