Some VMPS speakers used drivers made by MISCO, maybe Brian used their drivers for the VLA too. I did not see any passive radiators on their website. Contact them, I read they are nice people.https://www.miscospeakers.com/VMPS's passive radiators used a unique high-compliance suspension and a low moving mass diaphragm to achieve a low resonant frequency. The low mass of the passive radiator cone also meant it was very sensitive to small changes to the amount of putty (mass) on the cone.
Look guys the design is proven. VLA subs exist.I appreciate everyone's comments, concerns and suggestions, but it just a couple hundred $$ in MDF, really not a big deal. If it sounds terrible, I can always add solid dividers between each sub or just cut the cabinet in half. Jim
Do you have the design? Or is it build a box, stick in 4 speakers and 2 passive radiators and you have a VLA? If it was this easy everyone would do it. Sounds like you are willing to experiment, this project seems more like a VLA clone proof of concept with the realization that the first prototype will not work as expected but may have potential. At first, I would build only one.
WGH how many speakers have you owned? Unless you are able to have a in home audition of potential speakers, its pretty much a crap shoot.
Back to your build. Prototypes are fun. I bet you could have a working speaker in 8-20 hours. Quick and dirty. No glue, butt joints with drywall screws, woofers are screwed to the face of the front baffle (not inset), ugly crossover hot wired to speaker cables. More of a proof of concept than finished product. Just build one and measure the response.
I have opened up my REL Gibraltar G2 sub, it is built like a tank and doesn't need any improvement, the cabinet is only 20"w x 16"h x 24" deep but weighs 84 lbs. 450 AB watts into a single long throw 10" carbon fiber driver. It works very, very well.
I've moved up, my speakers are all active. The Sub will also be active, I can change crossover setting pretty much on the fly. Jim
What are the active electronics for your towers? I am always interested how other audiophiles approach the hobby.
Are you guys taking measurements and generating EQ filters with the XTZ Room Analyzer II Pro and implementing/importing them into the Xilica XP-4080?
