    WinISD is a decent program, but I don't know if it has that speaker in it's database.

    I'm at work, and I don't have it loaded up here, so I can't tell.

    You can download WinISD here...........

    You can load additional speakers into WinISD; you're not limited to the speakers that come with the program. Give Peavey a call and see if they'll give you the thiele-small parameters for your speaker.
     
  3. ok thanks but i dunno what all the little spec things mean and i wouldnt know what to aks peavey

    Unless you are willing to learn what the various speaker specs mean, speaker design software will be pretty useless. You can learn everything you need to know from searches here and on Google.
     
  5. i wanna learn what they mean but theres alot of these specs i have no idea what they mean and i cant find them anywhere, emailed peavey about it.

    I just checked and it's not in WinISD's database.

    I also did a bit on a net search and the closest thing I could come up with is the Peavey Sheffield 1500+ Pro. And I couldn't find any T/S parameters.
     
  7. yeah petebass its the 1500 pro i have 2 of em and wanna build a 2x15 to leave at my jam area i couldnt find any of those crazy specs for it either, peavey might get back to me i dunno.

    It seems that speaker was used in by Peavey in their PA cabs. THIS ONE in particular popped up time and time again.

    I'll keep searching for T/S parameters and let you know how I go.
     
  9. yeah my dad pulled the sheffields out of his pa and put in some other speakers he said i could have the sheffields i know their pa speakers but they should be fine if i can design a nice cab to put them in.

    thanks for the help i hope you find something!
