What size passive would you substitute and with what xmax etc? I don't know how to calculate it or guess at it. 36.1 hz tuning

Could someone tell me a method?

Calculate Vd=Sd*Xmax for your woofer, your passive radiator should have at least twice the Vd of the woofer.

Default eight inch m8a hivi

Newbie. What I am wanting to do is get down to 25 Hz in a enclosure around 15" 12" 20"
... using push pull. Passive radiator or transmission line or folded horn with the driver
Still able to cross at 100. Doable? I cannot get a passive driver flat in winked.

Thanks! I am working at understanding it. Two questions. What programs are used here and am I seeing am Isobarik in a folded horn?
edit
Okay it is called hornresp... have downloaded it. Just so I am using my time correctly these graphs are saying it is possible?
I had thought of using Isobaric with a horn config... did not know if transmission line would be better but I guess you think not do to the size? Thanks again on the help... so many cool people on this forum.
