HiVi B3N 3" Aluminum Driver Round Frame
Can't decide between 2x these or 2x TB W3-1053SC 3" for a portable in 1/2" oak. Clarity and dB are important but I must have much bass. Low sensitivity and 7k Hz peak has me worried. Presuming an optimal cabinet, which setup has fewer drawbacks?
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.
