PRO 023 Passive Radiator
Passive radiators are used when designing a vented system, to get around the disadvantages of port tubes. Typically a passive radiator is chosen with a larger area than the woofer (or combined area of the woofers), since at very low frequencies the passive needs to move a lot of air.
Passive radiators are tuned by mass loading. When I sell them for DIY projects, I leave off the dust cap so it can be attached after the desired mass is determined and glued to the apex of the cone.
