Dayton Audio ST210-8 8" Series II Woofer
I need to replace a woofer in a Energy 22e speaker. They are 8" and 6 ohm. I don't see anything of that combination. Can I use 8 ohm or 4 ohm instead?
The only way to definitely get the same performance as the original speaker is to replace the existing woofers with an original driver. (If you look around online, you might be able to find one even if the original is not available from Energy.) If you use a replacement woofer with 4 or 8 ohm impedance, you will end up with something that makes sound, but it may not sound the same as the original speaker, because the crossover network of your speaker is designed to get the best performance from the original driver. If making sound is all that's important to you, then you could probably substitute a 4-ohm or 8-ohm woofer and have working speakers.

Could I use 2 of these woofers with the dayton RS28F tweeter in a hi SPL MTM configuration. I like the way the RS28F sounds with crossover at 3kHz. Will these woofers play clean with crossover at 3kHz? I'll be using a MiniDSP.
These woofers do not have a very clean response up to 3kHz, and I would not recommend crossing an 8" much higher than about 2kHz anyway. You might want to consider something like a pair of the DS175-8 woofers instead, which will cross at 3 kHz and still provide a decent sensitivity.

I'm want to build a box with the measures of an Adan s3x-v with this woofer,. I don't know to much. Wondering myself if it would work perfectly? Does the crossover of Dayton Audio XO3W-375/3K 3-Way Crossover 375/3,000 Hz can work with this woofer? Thanks.

Would this be good driver as a car subwoofer in a .38 cubic foot enclosure, driven by a 200 watt Rms amp? I'm looking for a solution to provide a musical, not boomy sub in a smallish Subaru Xv Crosstreck (hatchback). I don't have a lot of space...
This is an excellent woofer but not the best choice for your application. I would recommend looking at the Dayton RSS210HO-4 instead which will work very well in that volume.

Was there a prior series to the Series II? I have a Dayton ST210-8 here 6-7 yrs old and was thinking of buying another to match up with this one but wondered if I had on old model with different specs than the Series II. (not sure if mine is series II.)
The Series II woofers have been available for more than 10 years and there are no predecessors. If you can, email a few pictures of your woofer to email@example.com and we can try to identify it.

Bought and installed this woofer in a 0.8 cubic ft enclosure with a 1.5" diameter port that's currently 6" long. Low end seems very thin and wondering if port is too long. What would a good length and tuning frequency be for this port to improve the bass?
I would highly recommend changing both the diameter and length of this port to help with the bass response. Right now you are tuned to 30 Hz which is not only a bit low for this woofer, but a 1.5" diameter port will have chuffing power compression problems even at low volume levels. I would recommend no less than 2.5" diameter for this. We have a single flared, press fit style port that would work well and raise the tuning frequency to about 43 Hz, it is our part number 260-478.
