Dayton Audio RS100-8 4" Reference Full-Range Driver
I would like to use 4 of these drivers in a single enclosure. what is the enclosure and port size to achieve the best bass?
I would build 10"X 10" X 5" with a bottom vent of 2-1/4" X 8-1/4" across the bottom.

Work as mid-range with other specs below?
I'm looking at my first 3 way build (trying to keep things as simple as possible). DC250 10inch for woofer and DC28F as tweeter. Crossover at 500 and 4000. Would this speaker work as the mid-range? I worry about sensitivity...Or maybe I'm wrong on all of this and I have no idea what I am talking about. Any help would be appreciated!
You could use this driver for a mid-range, but i agree that since the sensitivity is lower than the other speakers, it could lead to somewhat recessed mid's, however, that could be addressed with the crossover. I suggest looking into using the Parts Express Techtalk forums for more specific recommendations.

is volume simply doubled for two speakers in an enclosure?
Hopefully this question can be answered without knowing the specifics of vented or sealed (as I haven't yet decided).
Yes, regardless whether it is vented or sealed, everything doubles when you add a second driver.

Power handling as a midrange?
What can I expect for power handling from the RS100 if it's high passed somewhere around 150-200 Hz? At these frequencies excursion shouldn't be a concern, but cone control and thermal limit will be. Anyone with experience in this area? Drivers would be mounted in a small stuffed sealed chamber.
For your frequency range, I wouldn't push the speaker any more than the RMS 30 watts.

I have a couple nice 0.3 cabinets I made and was wondering if this wad a good candidate. They will be used crossed over at 150Hz . If so, how much fill do I use per cabinet. If there are other drivers that would work better for my needs, could you please recommend.
Will definetly do the work with that crossover in mind, I would try to fill the 0.3cu-ft cabinet with as much as half a pound of polyester fiber or Acoustastuff that PE sells... Just for that 200Hz humm resonance that small boxes produce...:)

One or two per tower speaker?
If I were to build a tower speaker using just this speaker supplemented by a powered (25wRMS) Dayton Classic 8" woofer in the lower chamber, would one of these drivers (per tower) suffice or would two be a notable improvement?Thanks.
One driver will give you point source imaging. With a sub that will create great sound staging. Additional drivers start to create unique challenges with regard to driver dispersion. My designs have always been either point source or line source. The exception is an MTM midrange which is typically horizontal.
