Default have some question about passive radiator and enclosure bracing for surround Spks.

I'm thinking or building the surround speakers based on the CHR-70 splayed surround from planet-10 with a twist of adding the passive radiator to them.

Click the image to open in full size.

Kinda like the picture above, that's what I was aiming for.

Thinking of using the 830878 Peerless 3.5" or the 830880 Peerless 5.25".

In order to keep the finished speakers to be 8 ohm impedance, what's the best choice to go with?

  1. 1 of the CHR-70 in the front and 2 of the 830878 Peerless 3.5" on both sides.
  2. or 2 of the Alpair 6M on both sides (wire them in series.) and 1 of the 830880 Peerless 5.25" in the front
One last question. I never build enclosure using the bracing inside of the box before, So I'm not sure if the bracing should place flat on the back of the driver or should it have some space in between?

If anyone could help with my questions, that would be nice.

Thank you,
