I do like the idea and sound of sealed boxes.. That being said, I have a crazy Sundown 6.5" bandpass box in the back of my car that amazes me every day.
That Volt driver looks very interesting.

FYI:

just did a 122.7db in-room with a single 8 incher, using a 12'' passive rad. At 30hz.

MAX output between 28-35hz, Which one?

Granted, it's one hell of a 8'', but still. You'll get anywhere between 4 to 6db gain just by adding PRs. That's pretty much what i did in the thread above (taken an existing sealed enclosure, cutting a hole and install a PR...)

Make sure you have 1.8x the Vd, minimum, or put 3x per enclosure for a dual-tens.

If you like the idea and sound of sealed cabs passive radiators are probably not for you!

The working principle behind PRs is the same as the one behind ported cabs.

The problem often cited with ported speakers is smeared transients and poor group delay due to the air mass in the port taking a finite amount of time to get excited and to stop.
The same problem exists with PRs but the difference is that while the air mass in a port tube is measured in grams the moving mass of a suitably tuned PR is measured in pounds.


To me the only acceptable use of PRs is in tiny desk top speakers where the correct port can easily be larger than the actual cabinet.

SB Acoustics SB29NRX75-6 is the best 10" woofer I've heard in your price range. The CSS SDX10 is the best 10" subwoofer I've heard in your price range. Either of these would be well suited for the sealed box size you described.

I am already using SB34NRX75-6 now and very happy with this.However i now want 2 subwoofers and will build stereo tower subwoofers because bass is not uniform in room.I was planning to buy 1 more piece of SB34NRX75-6 but the box volume seems very large ,about 70 liters internal volume minimum and not well accepted by wife.(She says she accepts it but i am sure she will say they are very big in future)
Now i see this one when you are talking CSS drivers!
Creative Sound Solutions | High End Speakers and Speaker Kits
When i entered parameters to win ISD ,the box volumes are at less than 1 cubic feet!For both CSS 10 and 12 inch drivers.This is 26 liters!
It is unbelievable! I will be very happy if i build slim tower stereo subwoofers with them!
I am planning to cross them at 100-200 hz (for multi use in future.With Woofer assited wideband projects )
I am not sure how much high frequency it can support.I am asking to CSS now.
regards
