    Somebody here can probably explain better than I can, but passive radiators are like vents. They can be used instead of vents when the cabinet is too small for a vent tube. You have to have double the radiator size so there is probably another one on the other side. Those are nice speakers!

      Thanks.  I should clarify, I know the function of a passive radiator, but I wonder if anyone knows the particular passive radiator model in use in the speaker?  Or is it maybe a woofer converted into a PR?  They are cool, aren't they!

        That same question was asked by one of the commenters on the site and the answer was: właśnie miałem Ci lina wysłać, oglądnij w HD

          No, you don't need to use a double sized passive radiator. My personal rule of thumb is to use a one size larger when it comes to passive radiators.

              What?
              If you look at the reponses on he webpage, you will see that that was the response to the question!

                In the film credits it identifies the passive as a Seas and gives the model number. IIRC it was 22 taf/g but don't hold me to that.

                  A careful reading of the comments leads me to believe the passive radiator is made from "an old broken speaker". The Seas 22taf/g is the tweeter. The SB is the woofer. The cab is to my eye not an old broken item. The only thing left is the passive radiator, to my mind a broken speaker could easily be made into a passive radiator. Just my NSHO.

                    Yeah, I get it, but I was hoping someone would translate it for the rest of us.

                      Yes, her replied to me and said an old broken speaker.  The other message in Polish really has nothing to do with speakers.
