Passive-Radiator Loudspeaker Systems, Part 2: Synthesis

Passive-radiator loudspeaker systems can be designed to specification as easily as vented-box systems. Driver requirements are generally about the same as for comparable vented-box systems, and the requirements of the passive radiator are directly related to those of the driver. The passive-radiator principle is particularly useful in compact systems where vent realization is difficult or impossible, but it can also be applied satisfactorily to larger systems.
