Have a set of Technics vintage 3-way speakers - not audiophile by any means, but sentimental in value - they are set to crossover at 2,000Hz, can these handle this crossover setting?
These will work fine with that crossover point.

Can this driver be crossed over at about 1600 hrtz to a horn or is a two way just not possible with this driver.
Generally it is not a good idea to cross a 15" speaker higher than about 1,200 Hz.

I am building cabinets for these woofers and I really want the low extension. I will not be pushing high wattage (below 30wattsrms), I just want the low extension at low wattage. So should I go ported? If so, how long of ports, how big of box?
For low power I would recommend a ported enclosure. Ideal volume would be 5.75 cubic feet per woofer, with a single 4" diameter, 8" long port for a tuning frequency of 23 Hz.

I would like to replace my 15" woofers in DIY cabinets, If i paired this with a new 3 way crossover could i get it to range from 40hz to 800/1000hz in a sealed 4.5ft^3 that's the sweet spot i need.
This woofer will cover that range without a problem in that volume.

Automotive recommendations sealed/proted enclosure size?
running parallel to amp with 200-250 watts. Could the enclosures mentioned in previous question work?
A 2 cubic foot sealed enclosure would be ideal for this in an automotive application. It will give you an F3 of 50 Hz which is right where you want to be.
