Peerless 830878 3-1/2" Passive Radiator
Would this work better with the Tang Band T1-1942SB Or AuraSound NS2-326-8AT Whisper 2".
Would this work better with the Tang Band W2-2040S 2" RBM Or Tang Band W2-1625SA 2"? This is going in a system with either a Tang Band T1-1942SB Or AuraSound NS2-326-8AT Whisper 2".
This passive would not be a good choice for either of these options. Those will only benefit from a standard ported enclosure and only produce frequencies down to about 100 Hz, depending on driver and alignment.

Hi, I'm planning to build a couple of small, active desktop speakers, including a DSP. I'm looking to use Dayton Audio AMT Mini-8 for the highs, and I am wondering what would be the best match for bass/mid together with this passive radiator?

I'm new to diy audio and I'm planning on building a small 10" subwoofer and making ports is too challenging for me. I've read people who've used a 10" radiator with their active woofer but that design is too large too. Would this work if tuned properly?
Unfortunately no, this passive will not have anywhere near the displacement required for a 10" subwoofer. Depending on the specific woofer, you will want to use two passives of the same size as the woofer, or one passive that is a size larger in order to work properly. We also offer many screw-mount style ports that only require a hole in the box which would be a very simply route.

Would this be a good consideration to go with a pair of Tectonic Elements TEBM65C20F-8 3-1/2" BMR drivers? Either single 15"x5"x9" (approx) enclosure, or dual 8"x5"x7" (1 radiator in each). Also considering HiVi B3M drivers. Sizes are flexible.
This passive radiator will probably have enough available displacement to work well with both of your drivers but it's usually a good idea for the passive radiator to supply 2 times the volume displacement (Sd * Xmax/10 = Vd in cm^3) of all the active drivers working in the same volume, so you'll need to calculate that out, and you might need to use dual passive radiators instead of a single one. If you use dual passive radiators, it may be a good idea to put them on opposite sides of the box to reduce cabinet vibration from the movement of the passive radiators.

A Peerless 3" 830987 full range driver in a .08 cubic feet sealed enclosure... how would the addition of this passive radiator to said speaker affect it (tuning, resonance, etc.)? How would the addition of 2 of this passive radiator affect it? Thank you.
Adding a passive to this system will cause a drop in F3, from ~120 Hz sealed, to about 85 Hz with the passive. Two will be too much and drop the tuning too low to be practical, but a single passive would work relatively well.
