Dayton Audio PA130-8 5" Full Range PA Driver
Thinking of using one or two of these in a small stage monitor for acoustic bands- Or possibly the Dayton Reference Series RS100-4.....what would you recommend for an amplifier to create a powered speaker? Would the little Lepai's work for this?
This driver will work great for acoustic stage monitors, much better than the Reference drivers. This driver is perfect for low power monitors alone, I would go in pairs for each cab to get more usable power from the amps. I would recommend giving these plenty of power, they have surprising dynamics if given a little headroom.

I want to build a diy boombox and I want it to be loud, without distortion. Will these sound good? I plan on using amplifier board (2x50w+100w) and a 8" sub. Also thinking of adding some tweeters with these to pick up some of the higher frequencies.
These are excellent drivers for a small high output boombox project. Tweeters would help above 10kHz.

Sorry I put my question in the comment section. Here it is proper. I would like to use this to replace the stock Roland Micro Cube speaker. Someone mentioned the cabinet hole needs to be opened. How much material needs to go? Saw or file ? thanks
You would need an opening that was 4.41" (4-7/16"), and room for the depth of 2.66" (2-11/16").

I have a pair of JBL J50's, the 5" woofers are shot beyond needing new foam. I like sharp solid bass and i drive them with clean power. Crossover is 2200Hz, tweets are fine, the PA130-8 at 90 hz is not as low as stock, will I be thrilled with these?
Unfortunately I cannot say how you will like a certain item as a replacement. These will probably not have the low end the old ones did even with the same enclosure tuning, but they will more than likely be more sensitive. You will also want to verify the woofer frame diameter, this Dayton is about 5.2", so if the JBL is exactly 5" you may have to modify the enclosure.

Based off a previous question, the recommended vented volume for a single woofer is .26 cubic feet. What would it be for two woofers per vented box? To clarify, would it simply be double the volume or how does that work?
Yes when you double the number of drivers you simply double the volume of the enclosure and number of ports for the same tuning frequency and F3.

I am going to try these for optimus 77 speaker replacements. The woofer in these is 5 inch round about 2 5/8 deep I can cut the 2 side down a little to make them fit but what is the hole spacing on these. I can always redrill if needed.
The hole spacing on this driver is 4.75".
