Dayton Audio DA175-8 7" Aluminum Cone Woofer
I just purchased two of these woofers to install in a 0.9 cu ft. enclosure. Can you please tell me the optimum port size and tuned frequency? Thanks.
Are you wanting both woofers in that volume, or just one?

Can I use a pair of these (2 drivers per cabinet) as woofers in your 300-7066 cabinets? I plan on keeping the cabinets sealed and using a 6.5" coax car driver for the mids and highs. I already have the car drivers. Trying to keep the budget low.
Yes a pair of these will work well in that volume sealed.

I need a relatively low cost replacement for a Polk MW 7100. Would the Dayton do the trick or is there a better option?

Given the extended range of this woofer, which Dayton crossover would you recommend with the DC28FT-8 tweeter? I'm going to experiment with this combination in a Realistic Optimus 27 speaker system.
I would recommend using a cross over point of 2 KHz or higher so you can use one like part 260-140.

I have 2 of these and would like to use them for a subwfr application (<30hz desired). ~100 wpc amp 1) How do I determine the best box size/port dimensions/tuning etc? 2) cani use both of them in one enclosure working together? or do 2 separate subs?
Two separate subs are almost always better than one, but it really is application specific. These are able to be tuned relatively low, but will be limited with overall output capability. I would recommend a volume of 1.25 cubic feet per woofer, with a 2" diameter, 6" long port for a tuning frequency of 29 Hz and F3 of 26 Hz. Keep an eye on woofer excursion, these wont take much more than about 20 watts without having problems.

I am considering using a pair of these to replace two 7" drivers in a Yamaha subwoofer model YST-SW120. Crossover adjustable up to 140Hz. The cabinet is 1.6 cu ft. Port is 10" long with 3" diameter. Workable? Suggestions? Thanks!
These will work quite well in that application. It looks like your tuning frequency would be 30 Hz.
