Dayton Audio ME650C 6-1/2" LCRS 15 degree Angled Ceiling Speaker
Recommended high pass x-over freq if using with a 12" sub - 100hz or 80hz??
As a rule I try and cross as low as possible, so I would start at 80 hz and see how well they blend i nyour room.

What is the minimum air volume for these speakers?
If we wanted to build a rear box for these free air speakers (because they're in an unheated attic, what is the minimum volume we need to make the box?
Building a back box for inceiling speakers that are open back, is always a good ideal. It helps protect the speaker from unconditioned attic space as you said. But it may also be required by the local fire code (you might not have even thought to check that).As an installer, I'm finding it fairly common to have to use either a speaker with a UL listed enclosure or build an approved back box for the them. 100% of new construction I work on, requires this.Having a back box also insures the sound is consistent from speaker to speaker (something you can't guarantee just mounting an open back speaker in the ceiling).To answer your question: The parameters someone would need to figure the exact airspace, are not given. But! You can easily build a 1 cubic foot enclosure to fit in the area where these speakers are likely to be mounted. And that should be more than enough airspace for these speakers.

Does Dayton offer a Center Channel ceiling speaker with the micro-edge? i cant find anything and it seems odd to omit this.
The ME520MTM is NOT an in ceiling speaker. You can use the same speaker for left, right center and surround....hence the "LRCS" in the model name.

Is it wired or wireless? How does it connect to the rest of the sound system?
These speakers are wired and need to be connected to an amplifier.

Do these include mounting hardware? If not, what mounting kit would be best for installation into a finished wall?
Yes these do have mounting hardware. Simply cut the hole, wire the speaker and mount as per the instructions.

The grills and finish look identical although the angle speaker is about 1" larger in diameter.
