Eminence Driver Parameter Update
10-Jul-2017

As materials and manufacturing techniques improve, Eminence will from time to time revise the parameters of its drivers to reflect these improvements. Additionally, new models are periodically added.

These new parameters can be downloaded below in the form of "BB6" files for use with the Eminence Designer computer program. They are also included as a standard part of the latest Eminence Designer program update. If you downloaded and installed the Eminence Designer 1.0.11 program update on or after 10-Jul-2017 then you do NOT need the update on this webpage.

IMPORTANT: This download is only useful if you have a properly installed and licensed copy of Eminence Designer. If you do not have an Eminence Designer software license you can view the parameters directly from the Eminence Speaker LLC website at www.eminence.com.

The notes for each box design describe the purpose of the design, list the max power the design can handle and other details.
 

Before Updating...

Please consider the following before updating the driver parameters and factory designs. In addition to including new BB6 files for new drivers and factory designs, this update also includes some replacement BB6 files for existing drivers and factory designs that have changed. In order to enforce a consistent naming convention, some of the file names of the replacement files have changed. This can create some confusion because, after the update is installed, you may have more than one BB6 file for some drivers and/or factory designs (an old one and a new one).

Most users don’t need the old files and we recommend that users who are skilled with Microsoft Windows delete the old driver parameter and factory design files before installing the update. The reason we say “skilled with Microsoft Windows” is because the driver parameter and factor design files are stored in a system area of Windows that is normally hidden from users. Therefore you must make the system folders and files visible and it can be a bit technical for novice users. If the following steps are confusing and you don’t have a friend or colleague to help, then we suggest that you skip this section and proceed directly to the “Update Instructions” section below. If you are skilled with Microsoft Windows, here are the steps to remove the old BB6 files:

  1. Launch the Windows Control Panel (Start > Control Panel).
  2. Click on “Appearance and Personalization”.
  3. Click on “Show hidden files and folders”. The Folder Options dialog box should open and its “View” tab should be pre-selected.
  4. In the Files and Folder section, locate the “Hidden files and folders” options and select “Show hidden files, folders, and drives”.
  5. Uncheck (turn off) “Hide extensions for known file types”.
  6. Uncheck (turn off) “Hide protected operating system files”.
  7. Click on the “OK” button of the Folder Options dialog to accept the changes and close the dialog.
  8. Close the Windows Control Panel.
  9. Using the Windows Explorer, navigate to the folder where the driver parameters were originally installed. On 64-bit versions of Windows this will usually be at C:\Program Files (x86)\Eminence\Designs\. On 32-bit versions of Windows this will usually be at C:\Program Files\Eminence\Designs\.
  10. Delete the BB6 files in the “Designs” folder that are named with a driver name. Be careful to avoid deleting any cabinet designs that you have saved here because they will be BB6 files also.
  11. Open the “Factory Designs” folder inside the “Designs” folder. Delete all of the BB6 files in the “Factory Designs” folder but do not delete the folder, itself. We also recommend using care here to avoid deleting any cabinet designs that you may have accidentally or intentionally saved in this folder as well.
  12. Navigate to the virtual storage area that mirrors the previous location. On 64-bit versions of Windows this will usually be at C:\Users\[Your Account Folder]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Eminence\Designs\. On 32-bit versions of Windows this will usually be at C:\Users\[Your Account Folder]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Eminence\Designs\. Important: You must substitute the name of your account folder for [Your Account Folder] in the paths above. For example, if your name is “Alin” and you used your name for your Windows user account, then the virtual storage path on a 64-bit version of Windows would probably be: C:\Users\Alin\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Eminence\Designs\.
  13. Look for driver parameter and factory design files here and repeat Steps 10 and 11 if you find them. Again, be careful not to delete any BB6 files that you want to save such as cabinet designs that you have created.
  14. Finally, return to the Windows Control Panel and restore your “Appearance and Personalization” settings so the system folders and files are no longer visible.

 

Update Instructions

Installing an Eminence driver parameter update involves the following steps:

  1. Download the updater by clicking on the "DOWNLOAD" button in the right column of this webpage and click on the "Save" button of the File Download dialog. Select a temporary location on your hard drive to store the download file. Important: Do not click on the "Run" button of the File Download dialog until after the file has been saved to your hard drive. This is because the updater cannot be run over the internet. It must be run from your computer.
  2. After the updater file has been successfully saved to your computer it is now okay to click on the "Run" button of the File Download dialog. Before doing so, make sure that Eminence Designer is not running. Then click on the "Run" button to launch the updater in the file you just downloaded. If you don't want to run it right away, you can double-click on the file later.
  3. Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista users: After the updater is launched, a system message will appear stating: "An unidentified program wants access to your computer". Make sure that "edata111.exe" is listed and then click on the "Allow" button. The Eminence Designer updater should now run.
  4. The updater will search your computer for your copy of Eminence Designer and it will install the new BB6 files containing the latest Eminence driver parameters. It is normal for the updater to pause while it searches your computer's hard disk for the old version of the program. The larger your hard drive, the longer it can take. An error message will appear if it cannot locate an existing copy of Eminence Designer.
  5. Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista users: A few seconds after the updater has finished, another system message may appear stating "This program may not have installed correctly". As long as you did not receive an error message during the update, it should have been successful and you can click on the "This program installed correctly" button.

Notes: Your Windows user account will need "administrator" priviledges to run the updater. Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista users: When you start the updater, you will be asked to confirm that you want to run the updater and, after it has completed, you will be asked to confirm that it functioned properly (described in Steps 3 and 5 above).
