Dayton Audio RS150T-8 6" Reference Woofer Truncated Frame
I'd like to use two of these in a vented enclosure, possibly with Part # 275-085 as the tweeter, crossed over with Part # 260-144. First, is this a good combination?..and Second, if it is a good combination, what would be the recommended enclosure specs?
Yes that combination will work fine. I would recommend using the vented enclosure volume on the site which is 0.31 cubic feet. I would build it to about 0.35 to make up for driver and port displacement. The port would need to be 2" in diameter and 8" long for a tuning frequency of 54 Hz.

Will the truncated frame of all the reference dayton drivers match up? Is the length of the truncated section equal for every dieter? 3" 4" 5" and 6"?
Unfortunately no, the length of the straight portion of the frame will increase as the speaker diameter increases.

I would like to us (2) in a .3 cab. What would the projected spes be ported/sealed or maybe a different driver would be better.
With a cabinet that small you will want to stick with a sealed design. Depending on the application, this will play into the 50s or 60s relatively easy but not much below that.

How well for IB car applications?
This seems to be the right speaker for my shallower mounting depth requirements and need for higher qts. However I don't understand how there can be some sort of bass improvement when the xmax rating is lower and it seems to be shallower digging in the FR compared to rs150-4. Can you help me with my ignorance?
This woofer will work well for an IB application like that. They probably use a slightly different spider for both designs which is why the Qts and Fs is slightly higher. Generally there is not much reason to try to get much below 50-60Hz from a mid-bass like this in a vehicle and most cases you can't by nature of the application.

When I click on the specifications sheet for more information, the link does not work. Can you supply frequency response graphs and other specs?
I would like to use a pair of these as mids to match the 12" Dayton Series II woofer @ 92db/watt. Matching these to a Focal T90ti tweeter.
Our specification sheets are saved in PDF format.
