    Using drivers as passive radiators?

    Hi guys, I’ve got two DIY subs that were originally designed for 2x15” drivers each. At some point I decided to split them into 4 separate enclosures. However I never got rid of the bigger boxes and now thinking of using them, but with a single driver in each. Question is - do I blank the...

    Best DJ power amp for AV passive subs?

    Hi, just need some advice on what is best for 2 Jamo One passive subwoofers. I was thinking of a home power amp but I need it to be 4ohm 200w and, of course it's over £650 for a really good one, to much for me. So, last choice is a pro DJ power amp, but do some go down to 25hz or below? What...

    Please recommend a passive LCR speaker bar with widest possible channel separation (imaging)

    Short version: I am looking for a recommendation for a passive LCR speaker bar that would provide the widest sound stage (or is it imaging?). I mean left/right separation for TV and movie watching in a family room. I will be adding a sub and 2 surrounds shortly after, but this is about the LCR...

    Looking for passive subwoofer 20Hz

    I've been looking for a subwoofer that goes down to around 20Hz. When I search I keep finding actives misrepresented as passives, or they don't go much lower than 40Hz, which is close to my main speakers. Any suggestions please? I have a spare NAD amplifier to drive it so don't want to pay for...

    Power amp for a passive sub

    Looking to help a family member. They have a sub and their old amp has failed. I'm after some recommendations for the replacement. I assume we could replace with a mono amp. The sub is a artcoustic Diablo compact sub. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Passive Subwoofer conversion, amplifier choices

    I'm considering converting two of my BK Monolith+ ported subs to passive and unable to decide what external rackmount amplifiers to buy. Reasoning is I'd like to build two of the subs into my screen surround, they will need to be on their sides and the amps will not have much airflow so I'd...
