SoundEasy Loudspeaker Design Software USB Key
SoundEasy Loudspeaker Design Software USB Key is rated 4.2222 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Time SoundEasy UserSoundEasy has been the backbone of all the loudspeakers I've designed and tested over the last ~10 years. It is a very capable program that can be relatively easy to use (following John's guide) for simple designs or as complex as you need it to be to design something amazing. I suggest building a cheap 2-way speaker following John K's $10 guide and document all of your steps for yourself as you go along. SoundEasy, unlike the name might imply to some, is a full fledged engineering tool. It does many things and doesn't provide a ton of explanation within the program. The manual is a treasure trove of information; download it first and if you feel like you can grasp the concepts in the manual, the program should make sense. Designing a loudspeaker properly using a powerful engineering tool is not for everyone; loudspeaker design can get way more complicated than most people realize when they first start. This tool is overwhelming to the novice because speaker design itself is overwhelming. 3D CAD programs such as Solidworks do not teach you about fabrication; you have to understand fabrication to effectively design a part in the tool. This is no different.I firmly believe that SoundEasy does way more than it should do at it's asking price. It is a tremendous value if you are the type of person that wants to seriously dig in and learn you can't spend your money better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Difficult but valuableAs mentioned by all others, this is a complicated, difficult, and unfriendly program. That said, it is invaluable in getting your best results in speaker design. I've been using it since version 3, updated to version 6, and have bought it again in version 17, mainly to get the updates and the USB style dongle.For me, the best feature is the crossover optimization. If you measure each driver completely, model the box, and go through crossover design optimization, it will examine hundreds of possibilities that you could never try with classic theory and calculations alone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serious competition for LEAP or LspCADI have owned, used, and upgraded SoundEasy since version 14. SoundEasy is an extremely powerful program for loudspeaker design, passive/active filter design, and advanced lumped parameter twiddling with BOXCAD.SoundEasy is not easy or intuitive software, but it is incredibly powerful. It is very much on par with more expensive competitor like LEAP and LspCAD.Anyone who is not already an experienced loudspeaker designer should consider John Kreskovsky's guides for Sound Easy a mandatory additional purchase to use the software effectively.SE is a big boy toy for serious hobbyists and professionals, and offers tremendous power for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to learnI bought this program because it does everything I needed. 1) Box design 2) Crossover design 3) MLS and 4) Room modeling. Those features can be found in lots of other programs but anyone of them costs a lot more then Sound Easy. This program is HARD to learn! I have a CAD background but this program is NOT intuitive enough to be learned quickly. There are manuals for this and I suggest looking at them before you consider buying.Manual Link: http://www.interdomain.net.au/~bodzio/They also come on the install disk so I don't know what the person at the bottom of the review page is talking about. The problem with the manuals is that they give much detail into what Sound Easy CAN do but does not show you HOW to do it. That becomes a huge problem when on top of that the program is not intuitive. Sound Easy allows importing of Clio data. So you can pull the Clio text off of this site because PE has some of them and then load it into your SE or you can use WT3 and export its data to a Clio text and import the Clio into SE. The reason I mention this is because SE needs all of the complex Z and SPL curves to properly model everything.I had to buy the Help file to it. I figured why not spend another $10 to learn what the program can do in a step by step HOW TO MANUAL!The link for it is: http://www.musicanddesign.com/After all of this you still need a lot of time and patience to learn how to use it fully. So take your time.Other then being hard to learn it is a great program!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loaded with FeaturesVery powerful, but not intuitive in many cases. However, once familiar with the operation and features it is possible to use very efficiently. Requires strong technical background in physics and electronics. I would not recommend for a novice speaker builder, unless he/she is willing to accept a steep learning curve and a fair amount of frustration along the way.

Is it possible to obtain more than one dongle?

Asked by: Paul Spencer
No, unfortunately. The dongle is keyed to a single piece of software individually, so additional and/or replacement dongles are not an option.
