Fender 8" Full-Range Speaker 8 Ohm
My Fender Vibro Champ XD has an 8" speaker with an open back. Do you know what the sound difference would be if this cabinet with 2 8" speakers was open back rather than closed and stuffed? Thanks you very much for your help.
For lack of a better word, the open back will give you more of an open sound and give you a leaner bass response, whereas the sealed enclosure will provide more bottom end and probably sound less natural.

Is anyone familiar with this speaker for Hi-Fi or home theater?
I have read some reviews for this as a "guitar" speaker and they were quite favorable.Home about for home Hi-Fi use? Im sitting on a bunch of different 8in drivers now,but these buyouts are occasionally to good to pass up. Thank you
This woofer models pretty well in about 1 cubic foot sealed for in room response into the mid 30's so using it in a home application should work quite well.

Given the T/s, and Frequency response, while not "ideal" or greatly extended, would a rear loaded horn be a viable option with an extended midrange or tweeter combo? maybe experiment with homemade phase plug/whizzer?For this price, i'd be hard pressed to pass this up compared to the extra expense of TB or Fostex equivalents that can pack a bassy feel. This would be theatre setup mostly, so not critical for music playback... all things considered!
I suggest a speaker with an "accordion" surround and heavier paper for a horn loaded drive. A half round surround speaker will likely become non linear in a compression chamber driven horn. Only 2 things keep the cone moving in a smooth pulse--the spider and the surround. A half round surround will allow more movement of the cone, but at the price of "wiggling" [non-linear] movement. A folded horn will reinforce bass down to the horn length, where it becomes an "unloaded" sealed box. I include some suggestions.

Are these instrument (electric guitar) speakers or are they also OK for use as woofers in stereo speaker boxes?
These will work well for either application.

What size cabinet would I need for two of these in a guitar amp speaker cabinet? Any other info that might be useful would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
For a guitar application the cabinet volume plays less of a roll than a woofer application. A pair of these will have good results in 1-1.5 cubic feet sealed and stuffed.

how would these work replacing the woofers in my ar 94's ?
Yes this will work well as the replacement woofer in those speakers.
