When designing a speaker cabinet using software like WinISD, BassBox, etc., it asks for all the pertinent speaker data - Vas, Qts, etc. - and it generates a predicted response plot for the selected cabinet type and features.

Now, is that predicted response only for the cabinet itself (assuming a perfectly flat speaker response) - or is it for the entire system including the speaker's actual characteristics (low frequency roll off, etc.)?

I'm wondering how - or even IF - the actual response of the speaker is accounted for in that plot?

WinISD (v2002) is the simulated infinite baffle anechoic response. It does not include the baffle response, like some other programs.
If it's for a subwoofer, placed outside and measured at 1m ground plane, the prediction should be similar.
I see there are newer versions but have not investigated.
