Galaxy Audio S5N-8 5" Neodymium Full Range Driver 8 Ohm
If using this speaker as a midrange and sharing the air space with a Eminence Kappalite 3010 LF woofer, is it necessary to chamber this speaker?
Yes I would recommend isolating any open back mid from the woofer chamber. A small sealed and stuffed enclosure is all that is necessary, the volume will not matter in this case.

Vb ? I am going to mount two of these drivers in a cabinet together, what should the internal volume of the enclosure be?
If I use two of these does that double the volume?Why don't speaker manufacturers specify the ideal enclosure volume?Should I isolate these drivers in their own sub-enclosures within the cabinet?
The Galaxy S5N-8 drivers will work well in 1 liter sealed enclosures. This is per driver. If you use two drivers in one enclosure then the enclosure size must be doubled for the same tuning. Using separate enclosures for each driver is a personal choice but is not necessary as long as they are identical drivers receiving the same signal. These drivers must be isolated in their own sub-enclosure from any other system drivers with open backs, i.e. the woofers.The enclosure volume that I am recommending will provide near-minimum ripple and a -3dB knee at about 260Hz. Some manufacturers do provide recommended enclosure sizes to assist the DIY community but due to the variety of interactions between various system components, there is no ideal size.

What is the required cutout diameter for this speaker?
This speaker is designed to be rear-mounted, however, for surface mounting, the cutout would need to be 4-1/4".

will these speakers project thier sound far enough to use in a PA or are they strickly for close range monitor use?
This product is designed for near-field use, and as such, I don't know that I would recommend using them as mains. In a line array, they may do fine, it may be worth doing a bit of Googling to see if there is a proven design using them in multiples for sound reinforcement.

Does this speaker really do 95db SPL, 1 watt, 1 meter?
I have two Galaxy spec sheets for the S5N-8, with one claiming 91 db spl, the other claiming 95 db spl, 1watt/1Meter. The graph looks to average closer to 90.5 db above 600hz, and below 90db under 600 hz. Did they upgrade the driver, or hype the specs? Other Theile parameters are slightly different on the spec sheets as well.
I apologize for the oversight on our part. The 95dB is an older specification, which has been revised since the initial release of this product. The current model is rated 91dB sensitivity 1w/1m. Our website will be updated to reflect the correct specifications shortly.
