HiVi M4N 4" Aluminum/Magnesium Midbass
I see many speakers with a Power Handling (RMS)15 Watts and Power Handling (max)30 Watts. Is it secure to use this kind of spearkers with a 20 W RMS amplifier at total power?
Yes this will be perfectly fine. The RMS number is the most important although wattage is not as important as most people think. Just pay attention to the sound of the speaker and if it sounds distorted at higher levels than it is being over powered.

Could this be used instead of the B4Ns for the overnight sensations???
Unfortunately no, the Overnight Sensations were designed around the B4N woofer, changing this will change the overall outcome of the design.

Hello, Would like to build 2 tower speakers at 4ohm . Each tower using eight or ten M4N mids and one TN25 for the highs. I would also like to use the Dayton BPA-386 for the crossover. Would this be a good set up? Any advice please. Thank you.
Eight of those drivers in series/parallel will yield a 4 ohm load so this is the number I would stick with. The TN25 will work above 3,500 Hz although I am not familiar with that Dayton crossover model.

What would be a good sealed enclosure volume?
.17 cubic feet for an F3 of 71hz... You can click on the speaker building tab up top, then the woofer selection guide on the right to see ported and sealed options for many drivers available on PE.

3 way enclosure
i'm trying to design a 3 way system using 6 of these drivers, but i'm having trouble trying to work out an optimum enclosure, sealed or vented. ideally i would have 2 of them as mids in a sealed enclosure (if possible) and 4 as woofers in a vented enclosure. i checked out the manufacturer's specs and they recommend a 4L box, but they don't specify vented or sealed. any thoughts? any help would be appreciated
too many same size drivers have a comb effect and frequency dips and peaks,,,, use 1 good tweeter the 4in for good mid bass , mid range and the woofer a ten or 12 in with cost similar to the combined 4 drivers a good pre assembled x'over from PExpress,, stuff it seal or port it and in the long run you will thank me for changing your idea from a pa column in the gym to home thunder with a good sound image ALWAY'S BEAR IN MIND , THEIR ARE COUNT LESS WAY'S TO DIY AUDIO AND I ALWAY'S CONSULT MY DEAF CAT![JUST KIDDING]
