Can I use this as a single speaker/full range without a tweeter?
I'd like to put it in the man cave with a little amp and a pedal-power generator. I've got small sealed boxes and haven't built a speaker system yet. I've modified plenty and played with car audio but never built a crossover by hand (I have used # 260-210 in a modding project).
You could but you will see some sort of drop off above 8000hz, how crucial that will be for your listening is up to you to decide.

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]

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.
