Dayton Audio DC130B-4 5-1/4" Classic Woofer Speaker
What would be the best tuning frequency for a ported enclosure?
I would recommend tuning this around 55 Hz in the recommended vented volume. This would require a 1.5" diameter, 5.5" long port.

I am building a set of boxed in-walls for home theater. I would like to use 2 of these in each enclosure in parallel but am concerned of the load on my amp as it only has specs for 8ohm and 6ohm load. should I be concerned
If you are using two of these in each speaker, they will need to be wired in series for an 8 ohm load. This will not harm your amplifier.

Is there any way to determine the diameter of the magnet on this dc130b-4\5.25 woofer. I purchased a set of dc130bs-4, and the magnet would not fit enclosure. If the dc130b-4 is 3\8" smaller in diameter. That would be great. Please advise. '
The diameter of the magnet on this woofer is 80mm or 3.15". This is about 7.5mm (0.3") less than the shielded version.

Are there frequency response graphs available for this and other Dayton Audio drivers?I'm looking to build a matching set of satellites for my HT using one of the following drivers:Visaton 9025Dayton Audio 5 1/4" classicDayton Audio 5" designerDayton Audio 5" referenceand I'd like to use a ribbon tweet. I am currently using a KEF C1 Bookshelf and a C6LCR for center. I don't like the aluminum tweet, it's sounds "spitty" but I I'm also wary of first time ribbon horror stories. I know I need a woofer with light cone and Arum Cantus is right on the mark but way off the price.
The Dayton audio drivers all have a specifications sheet in the right hand column under the manuals/resources heading. They feature all of the specifications and a frequency response graph.
