    What condition are the surrounds in?? If they are yellow and not refoamed they are going to be stiff. Just use a port or go looking the older JBL enclosure manual for box volume although JBL only used 1 per speaker.

    so is two pr10s per box ok, how do they effect volume.

    Hello bldozier

    If you look through the literature JBL recommends 32 Hz box tuning for the Le-10A. The passive radiator was only used in the box volume range from 1.1-3.0 cubic ft after that it switched over to a reflex port. I assume your are not sure how they work so yes they are an alternative to the port and they used different disks of different materials to add mass if needed, so you could put on 2 hardwood disks or a hardwood disk and a metal disk as an example to get the fb " BOX TUNING " you want.

    The problem as i see it is there is no PR-10 info on the site so you would have experiment to figure out if you need to add mass to the PR. All you would have to do is run an impedance sweep to see where your fb is. Ideally it would be too high so to lower fb you would add disks as needed.

    fb on the sweep is the lowest reading.

    As far as using 2 you would have to figure it out but keep in mind you don't want your box to get too big over 5 cubic ft

    Take a look through the enclosure plans on the site. 1960's Enclosure Guide and the one linked there is a lot of info in there. Look at Giskards added spread sheets as well.

    Good luck!
