Peerless 830452 10" XLS Subwoofer
What is the optimum enclosure volume when using this driver with it's sister passive radiator? How much weight should be added to the PR?
Hello Matthew. My name is Eddie, If memory serves me right, 1 cubic foot is like the minimum for a 10" speaker. but for a Sub, I like 1.25 cubic feet for my enclosures. Anything smaller seems to make the Sub work against it's self. The louder you go, the more unpleasent it will sound. I am not too familiar with a Passive radiator? I would think it, that it wouldn't need further enclosure volume, being the Pressure from the active speaker provides the energy for the Passive radiator. I believe the 1.25 cubic feet would be enough though. If you wish to experiment, use some OSB to do a mock up, before you build the real thing. OSB is cheap and works ok for experimenting with different type of boxes.

What are the standard recommended box volumes for sealed and ported for this driver? For two in one box?
With a Qts of 0.17, I would not recommend a sealed enclosure for this driver. A vented design of 1.0ft³ with a 3" x 11" port yields an F3 around 39Hz. For two drivers in one box, simply double the volume, and use two ports of the same dimensions.

What's the ideal ported box for car use?
I'd like to know what is a good ported box design for this woofer in a car.
I would recommend an internal volume of around 1.0ft³ and a 3" port approximately 11" in length. With light to moderate stuffing, this will yield an F3 frequency of around 39Hz.
