HiVi B3N 3" Aluminum Driver Round Frame
I plan to build a speaker that would consist of (1) Dayton Audio B3N woofer and (1) Dayton Audio ND20FA-6 tweeter, and plan to feed it with only 10W of power. Would 10W be (barely) enough to drive this speaker efficiently?
I'm thinking of getting a pair of these drivers hivi b3n but my question is can I use them as woofer??
Sure, as long as you realize they won't have much output below about ~80 Hz depending on enclosure alignment.

Are the HiVi M6N and the M3N cone the same "bronze" color or are they different? What about the B3N? I'm looking to have the same matching color if possible for my center channel speaker I'm building.Thanks in advance!
No, they are all colored as pictured on each product page. Some have this same dark bronze color the others are lighter in color and would not be a direct color match to that darker appearance.

Im making a portable speaker system. Im using 2 speakers. Should I put a divider between them? If divider, what size port and volume for each side. If no divider, what size port and volume?
There is no reason to separate the two chambers other than added bracing for the cabinet. Either way, a pair of 1" diameter, 4" long ports will work well in 0.25 cubic feet for two woofers.

Im new to audio. Whats a good sealed box dimension for these speakers? According to the specs, a sealed volume of 0.16ft^3. So like a 4"x3"x3"? or does the number just mean the minimum volume?
The recommended volumes are for an optimally flat response. The internal dimensions of this volume would be 10.5" x 6.5" x 4".

Is it possible to run two of these speakers off the midrange output from the crossover, yet somehow maintain 8 ohms impedance?
No, you can only have 4 or 16 ohm impedance with two 8 ohm drivers wired together.
