Dayton Audio RS180-8 7" Reference Woofer
What length port would I need for .67 cubic ft box if I used a 2" diameter? I happen to have some laying around.
I would recommend a length of 5.5" in that volume which will tune the enclosure to 44 Hz.

What would the port size be for a .67 cubic ft box.
I would use a 2-1/2 inch diameter port that is 8-3/8 inches long. This will tune the cabinet to 44 Hz and yield an F3 of 47 Hz

This is my first ever question to any forum. kindly let me know which is the best matched tweeter with this woofer. design apparch is mtm. active version using hypex PSC-2 400.
The most popular tweeters for this would be either of the RS28 dome tweeters. There is no such thing as a single best match, but these will work very well with this mid-bass.

I'm looking to use these for side surrounds but I'm limited in total box mounting depth. The total depth for the surrounds would be only 4.5". Would these work or do they need more space behind the rear of the woofer?
These only require a mounting depth of about 3-1/8". They do not have vented pole pieces so they do not need space behind the magnet.

If i were to put 4 of these in a cabinet arranged in a 2x2 grid layout what would the dimensions of the cabinet need to be to get the best bass and how big would the port ha e to be?
An enclosure with external dimensions of 22"H x 18"W x 12"D with two 3" diameter, dual flared ports that are 9-1/4" long will provide a tuning frequency of 41 Hz.

Why does the 4 ohm version of this driver call for completely different optimal enclosure dimensions than the 8 ohm driver?
The 4 Ohm driver and the 8 Ohm driver have very different Thiele-Small parameters which affect the size of the enclosure.
