HiVi B3N 3" Aluminum Driver Round Frame
The CLIO T/S parameters are much different than the manufacturers specs. Which is correct? I would think the CLIO report but was wondering if anyone has double checked this because of the wide discrepancy. Thanks
The Clio parameters will be quite a few years old at this point. The driver specs have been updated since then and what is on our site will reflect the most up to date specs available.

Looking to use 2 of these in a ported enclosure of .56 cu ft. Internal measurements are 14.5" X 7" X 9.5". What port dimensions would I need to get a F3 of 44Hz?
I would recommend a port that is 1-1/2" in diameter and 1-1/2" long for that F3.

Would these work in 2010 jeep sound bar.. 3 inch hole but its closed behind speaker?
These require a slightly smaller hole for a proper mount, but you may be able to get them to work. The only problem I can see would be a slight lack of output due to their low sensitivity and no appreciable bass response below probably 100 Hz or so. The FaitalPRO 3FE25 below would be a better choice in terms of overall output, but it will still require a slightly smaller hole for mounting.http://www.parts-express.com/faitalpro-3fe25-3-professional-full-range-woofer-4-ohm--294-1103

I just bought a Kinter MA-700 mini amp from Parts Express to build a little speaker project. Would this amp be enough to power a pair of these HiVi B3N speakers adequately?
Yes this will work for a pair of these drivers.

I would like to do a pair of small cube speakers with the HiVi B3N for use with both movies and music. Would a sub-woofer be necessary? If so, what would be a good match? (fyi, I am replacing a Bose Acoustimass 3 Series III). Crossover?
Whether a subwoofer is necessary will be up to you. These won't reach much below 100 Hz so there is a good chance of a subwoofer being wanted to go with them. There isn't one in particular that I can recommend since every subwoofer we carry will play up to 100 Hz.

im using this driver in custom enclosures built out of mdf and tried using a 3 inch hole saw since i dont have a lot of tools..the hole was borderline too big..would a 2 3/4 inch hole saw be sufficient or would you recomend something else? thanks
I'm afraid 2-3/4" will probably not be enough. If you can find a hole saw that is 2-7/8" it will be perfect, otherwise a router with a circle jig or a jigsaw will be your best bet.
