Celestion has announced the premiere of HornWizard, a new desktop and mobile application that’s designed to be a portal to the company’s horn design software.
HornWizard has been developed to introduce systems engineers to Celestion’s horn design capabilities, enabling users to test a basic concept design — using just a few parameters — to determine whether a particular horn specification could work in practice. Users can verify designs, adjust them with different parameters and then quickly view the results.
HornWizard has been created as a WPA (Web Progressive App), usable on both desktop and mobile devices to access Celestion’s design software using a simplified parameter set. The app doesn’t contain any horn design software itself: it simply acts as a portal. Users can input parameters that are processed by the in-house software with results returned to the app interface.
HornWizard is not a complete horn simulator but uses a simplified method to produce a close estimate of directivity and frequency response. It also enables the user to see how different drivers work on the horn, aiding in the driver selection process.
HornWizard is available as a free download here.
