Dayton Audio RS100-8 4" Reference Full-Range Driver
I am using this midrange with a HiVi M8a and a DC28F, in a 1.75 ft^3 box. I am using a 3-way crossover @500hz/3500hz. So to isolate the mid from the woofer, can I use a .035 ft^3 MDF box for the mid? Or how about a 4" PVC endcap? Does it need more space?
I am considering using 2 of these in a single enclosure powered by a t class mini amp to become a boom box type item. Can this be done with the speakers wired directly to the amp without using some type of crossover gizmo? My apologies for my ignorance.
Yes these can be used full range without a crossover in an application such as a boom box.

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.
