Dayton Audio SD270-PR 10" Passive Radiator
I have 2 of these in a 12.5 x 12.5 x 13 inch sealed and a dayton 100 watt amp and classic 10 in sub and the 10 can't produce the lows. What 10 or 8 inch sub would be best for this setup?
I would recommend the SD215A-88 in this enlcosure with 150 grams of weight added to each passive. This will drop the tuning from the current ~55Hz to about 38 Hz.

How many of these would i need to work with a sundown sd-2 8inch subwoofer with 14.5 mm of xmax One way. Also what size enclosure would you recommend and tuning weight?
I would recommend 0.6 cubic feet total, with two of the 10" passives. You will have to add 200 grams of weight to each for a tuning frequency of 40 Hz and an F3 of 34 Hz.

Hello, so I just recently heard of a passive radiator and was wondering if I can use it in my aplication. I have a 8" w7 in a sealed box that I wanted to use as a home teather subwoofer. Will it be worth cutting up my box? If so which size pr should I use
The W3 drivers are best suited in sealed enclosures. I you wanted to email tech support with the box volume you have, we can possibly run a model to see how a passive radiator might effect the performance. email@example.com

The two openings in the bottom of my Velodyne 810X measure 9" and 10". Will I need to increase the diameter to mount this replacement?
The overall frame diameter on this woofer is 10-5/8" so yes, the recessed opening will have to be enlarged to fit this.

i'm thinking of building a small 3-way speaker close to the design acoustics ps-10 but want to add a passive radiator to the design, would i get better bass response or would it be a wate of time?
This is entirely subjective and depends on the woofer you plan on using. Most 10" drivers will provide good enough bass response with a standard port, although others require a very small ported cabinet in which case only a passive will fit. The PS-10 speakers should be big enough for use with a standard port tube but again, this depends on which woofer you decide to use.

Would 2 of these be sufficient to pair with a JL 12W7? I'm looking at a 6 ft/3 enclosure, and 18hz tuning
I would not recommend two of these for that woofer. You will need something like the TC Sounds VMP 12" in order to handle the excursion.
