Dayton Audio PA130-8 5" Full Range PA Driver
I want to build an aura-clone, ive seen a diy article minus dimensions with this speaker, can you help with proper size for optimum response. cordially don ward
I am not familiar with that particular design, but the recommend vented box for this woofer is .26 cubic feet. With a 1-1/2" diameter, 2-1/4" long port the tuning frequency will be about 73 Hz and provide a flat response.

what size speaker box for 4 of these?
I would like to build apair of sealed boxes with 4 of these speakers in each wired in series parallel to remain 8 ohms.i will be sending the lows(100 hz and lower)to subs so I don't need fantastic bass response and would like to make the boxes as small as possible to hang from my ceiling.
Four of these require only 0.27 cubic feet for the flattest response.

What size cabinet for 2 of them for small PA or Monitors?
I was thinking about running 2 of these with a tweeter for some small PA tops. What size cabinet world work best? Ported, sealed?Thanks!
If two woofers and a tweeter - have the tweeter on top and vertical or you will have crossover and phase issues. D'Apolito designs are challenging... You need to google search a box calculator. Plug in the T/S specs and you will see the difference in response curves for both ported and sealed. Some speakers lend themselves better to one or the other. You will see by the specs. If sealed, and you want accurate sound, go for a total Qts of .707

Small Pa ?
Looking to build some small cabs for a one man acustic gig. How well will these sound if I had 2 per cab (16ohms) had two cabs together for 8ohm
According to the specifications this will work well for an acoustic guitar or keyboards, and according to the reviews the performance appears better than expected. The efficient of 90db is better than some larger 8", one thing to remember every 10db of spl is perceived by the human ear as being twice as loud. That being said, a few db (2-3) increase is a noticeable difference with the same amount of power. They are small and will not need much size in a cabinet and for the price, a good lunch cost more.
