Dayton Audio SD270-PR 10" Passive Radiator

The Dayton Audio Passive Radiators are excellent general-purpose passives suitable for replacement or for new construction. A built-in mass disc offers a good starting point for most designs, and a convenient M5 threaded hole (screw included) allows different types of weights to be added if desired. Cosmetically and mechanically, the passives match the Shielded DVC line of subwoofers, with a poly coated paper cone and medium-roll rubber surround for clean excursion and long life. The possibilities with these passives are endless, from floor standing two-ways to small active/passive subwoofer systems.

Specifications: • Fs: 19.5 Hz • Vas: 3.90 cu. ft. • Qms: 2.50 • Cms: 0.67 mm/N • Mms: 100 g • Rms: 4.89 kg/s • Sd: 340 sq. cm. • Xmax: 10 mm • Dimensions: Overall diameter: 10.63", Cutout diameter: 8.94", Depth: 2.81".


Note: Adding mass to the passive radiator will decrease Fs and increase Qms.

Tip: As a general rule the passive radiator(s) should be able to move double the volume of air as the active woofer(s)/subwoofer(s) in the system. For example: A passive radiator system for a 10" woofer/subwoofer that has 10mm of X-max would require 2-10" passive radiators with 10mm of X-max. For single passive radiator systems, it is common to use a passive that is larger than the active woofer(s)/subwoofer(s).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product from a Great companyThis was my first purchase from Parts Express. Both Parts Express in general, and these Dayton Passive Radiators in particular, have exceeded my expectations in terms of product quality and performance, value, prompt delivery, and what appears to be a genuine corporate commitment to customer service. Parts Express has just become my preferred electronics supplier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality!I have a pair of Radian Research 2-10-3 loudspeakers. They were made by Becker in the late 70s early 80s. They have two ten inch woofers and a passive on the back. The passives were done and I ordered these as replacements. Super fast shipping and very solid passives. I got them I. Without too much trouble and it completely restored the bass of these speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement Passive Radiator Hits the mark!Replacing stereo components such as cabinet speakers is for me a on going process. And the advent of the new passive radiator, the screw holes didn't line up, so a little craftiness was no problem to make it fit. The sound is good, no vibration and able to handle my 200 watts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performerI used this to replace the passive radiator in my 20 year old Velodyne subwoofer. After a little modification to the speaker cabinet opening size, the sub has never sounded better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Audio SD270-PR Passive Radiator ReviewI have a pair of Synergistics speakers from Tokyo Shapiro's in the 80's. The passive radiators were decomposed. I bought a pair of these 10" radiators. I think these speakers are better now than when they were new. Lots of bass and air movement. I plan to replace the 8" Woofers with speakers from Parts Express. Thank you. Would definitely buy again 1000%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good valuePurchased the 10" passive radiator to replace the blown one in my 15 year old Velodyne VA 810 XI subwoofer I am restoring to use with a secondary stereo. It works great with the new driver. Very satisfied.

Do these come with weights to add mass, or are those sold separately?

Asked by: Matt_Getz
These only include a machine screw and one washer, additional washers will have to be purchased at your local hardware store.

Hi, I have an Infinity Basslink which has a shallow and passive 10in subwoofer. with max 200w D class built-in amp. would this woofer work as a replacement? What do you recommend i replace both woofers with?

The active woofer is on the front of the cabinet - can the PR be on the bottom facing down? Or does that eventually cause suspension/spyder issues?

Asked by: markajh
This passive will work fine down firing.

Is there a cheap(under $50) 8" or 10" subwoofer/woofer that'll work with this p.r. to get me into the low 30s in a 2.5 cu. ft. box?

I have two of these PRs, a Yung SD500 (no boost) and a Dayton TIT280C-4 10" Mk III subwoofer. Will these play well together? If so, please recommend enclosure volume and weight to add to each PR for F3 about 25-30 hz. If not, what would be best? Thanks!

Asked by: icon66
Unfortunately these will not work well together. The passives will not handle enough weight for that low a tuning frequency and also do not have the excursion capability to keep up with the woofer. We actually do not have a passive radiator that will be a good match, so a standard sealed design would be the best option.
