6-1/2" Poly Cone Midbass Woofer 4 Ohm
Hi: I purchased four of these woofers with the goal of making two speakers running the drivers in series for 8 ohms. What is the best size of sealed cabinet for this application? Also it sounds like these will work well with a 2500Hz to 3000Hz crossover?
You will want to use a 1.5 Ft3 box tuned to 56 Hz for two drivers wired in series. Yes, a cross over set at 2.5 to 3 KHz will work well.

Would 2 in series make it 8 ohm/60W RMS ? 1CuFt for sealed ? If I need a pair for clean Music(mostly acoustic/classical/pop/acapella/eastern styles of music). I do NOT plan to add Subwoofer. Any tips to get good coverage on the lows ?

Are these woofers candidates for a compound woofer set-up? I kinda feel like 1.5 cf box is too big for a small speaker. Now 0.75 cf in a compound speaker is acceptable. Especially since they are only $5 each. Any thoughts out there?
This should work fine in a compound isobaric setup as long as you aren't looking for huge amounts of output. A pair of these compound loaded will only require 0.5 cubic feet and have an F3 of about 54 Hz.

building a 2way speaker set up using these woofers wired in parallel with this tweeter Part # 279-002 is this going to be okay being that the woofer is 4ohm and the tweeter is 8ohm?
Yes this will work fine, the impedance different will not effect anything. Make sure you have a crossover on the tweeter for protection.

Any point in considering these for open baffle? Fairly high Q, and efficiency. Thinking of stringing up to 4 of these for each channel -- target load being 4 ohms, band passing them around 60Hz, and high passing the full range driver at 200Hz.
These should work well open baffle, especially used in multiples and high passed at 60 Hz.

Sealed or Ported? Looking at building 4 speakers for about a 20'x30' room that will be in the corners of the shop. Would a ported or sealed configuration work better for this? All types of music, some is somewhat bass heavy like hip hop, techno, etc.
These woofers like a sealed enclosure, roughly 0.5 cubic feet each. Porting will give you a bloated bass sound and limit overall power handling.
