Dayton Audio RS100-4 4" Reference Full-Range Driver 4 Ohm
Would I get adequate sq and spl from these mounted in the doors of a 1983 XJ6 Jaguar as one-ways? These would be powered by an Pioneer DEH-6100bt (Continuous Power Output: 22W x 4) and no external amp. The speakers would be pointed directly at the center console. Or in this application would it be better to use a traditional coaxial? My main concern is the low sensitivity of this speaker.
I think with 22W you will get adequate output. I would ask if these are the largest that will fit? Find the largest drivers for your door openings and select from them.

may i ask the exact cutout parmeters in mm (milimeter) ?
The cutout for this driver should be at least 77.2mm in diameter.

Is there a truncated frame version of the 4 ohm?
I see the 8 ohm version of this speaker has a truncated frame, I did not see the same for the 4 ohm. If there is, what is the part number?
At this time there is not a truncated version of the 4-ohm Dayton Audio Reference Series drivers. For an alternative product, please see the driver listed below.

a ported box
I am not savvy at the online calculators, could someone help me with a ported (or sell me on sealed) for this driver. My box is .11 cu ft. Is there another driver that would be better? I am interested in good bass response from a full range. That is my box constraint. Thanks in advance!
The quick answer is , No. Probably wont get enough bass to satisfy your requirements from these woofers, fine as they do sound.The long answer I have would be, Depends on your application and requirements. I tried a pair of these, in a tuned enclosure of similar volume, to achieve a small stereo setup with no x-over using these completely full-range. For small-space use, like for an office or desktop, they could probably work well, as the sound is really pretty good when u can get right on-axis for listening. But for ambient use even, the treble just rolls off too much, and likely you'll then be in a larger room and farther away from the speakers, and the bass output just wont be sufficient in that case. I intend on repurposing them as some nice mid-fill in my car, where I can relieve them of both treble and bass frequencies. So, close and on-axis, yes, they would be good. Otherwise, maybe not so much. If you really want a full-range single driver speaker, I would look at something larger, that still claims to go high enough to suit your needs. Hope this helps!

2 of these run in series, does it increase or decrease the senesativity
There is no change when wired in series.Although the piston area doubles, which would normally give a 3db increase, the impedance has doubled in a series connection, reducing the power by 1/2, which gives a 3db decrease. So no net change in sensitivity, but the power handling will increase by twice or 3db.

I want to use these as dash speakers in my 2012 4runner. should I install bass traps to limit lower frequensies from blowing this driver.
how would I limit LF 80HZ down from blowing this driver?
You will have to install a high pass filter to prevent damage unless your head unit has a built in HPF setting. Most newer models offer this.
