Hey All,

First post here and glad to have found the community.
Working on a little speaker design and picked up a variety of passive radiators from Parts Express as well as Ebay
The ebay ones are - of course - of Chinese origin and do not come with any parameters.
I remember watching a YouTube video at one time (I think it was Hexibase) - where he did a demonstration on how to obtain some parameters but for the life of me, I cannot find that vid anymore?
Anyone know the vid or a similar one - or even a good writeup on obtaining these parameters from passives?

TIA

Welcome to AV NIRVANA ... glad to have you with us.

I'm not familiar with it and our DIY base here is on the lighter side, unfortunately.

Hey thanks for the reply Sonnie.
I will keep researching this and if I come across the intel, I will follow-up on the post with the information. Might be valuable to someone other than me down the road. Its a bit frustrating that these manufacturers do not provide the necessary data for the parts they make.

I have used many of the Boston Acoustics versions. They are superior products. The mounting hardware that they come with is sadly junk. Unfortunately I don't believe that they are in production anymore. Have found the last few on ebay or the Boston Acoustics website under new old stock.

Hi, I have a similar problem - I am converting my KRK Rokit 8 powered speakers to passive and there is no parameter data available. Ideally, I would like to start with the parameter creation, build crossovers and move on from there.
Otherwise, I am just going to do a quick and dirty and grind my way through.
Have you found a help file or video that worked for you?
