HiVi B3N 3" Aluminum Driver Round Frame
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.

What size port would I need for an enclosure 5.5" wide by 5" deep and 7" tall, inside dimensions. They are on a surround system with a bass speaker. I have some nice oak boards 5.5" wide and 7/16 thick that I want to use.
I would recommend a port that is 1" in diameter and 3" long for a tuning frequency of 72 Hz.

I am making a home made portable bluetooth speaker and I want pure bass. I would like to use 2 of these speakers for portable bluetooth speaker. For 2 of them what is the best box mesurement for bass? How much volts does it take to power one of these?
I would recommend a total volume of 0.25 cubic feet with two 1" diameter, 2" long ports for a tuning frequency of 77 Hz. Speakers aren't rated by voltage, they are rated by wattage. Any amp that can provide 10-15 watts of clean power to each of these will be plenty.

can some give me a slim box design in In. for 2 of these for an Fs of roughly 40Hzexample 20"T x 5"W x 3"D
This driver requires about 0.25 cubic feet and has a pretty peaky bottom end. With an enclosure that is 36"Hx5"Wx5"D with a 1" diameter, 2" long port you have an F3 of 44 hz.
