Would these work well as replacements in my JBL PRO III speakers? If they would put out more bass power, it's worth it to me to not go the replacing the torn surrounds route.

does this speaker have a 5 5/8" outside diameter, will it also fit a 5" cutout?
Yes the frame diameter is 5-5/8". It will fit well in a 5" diameter cutout.

are these the same color as the B4n's?
Unfortunately no, the B series drivers have a darker brushed type finish.

Torn between using this speaker or the Dayton RS125-8 in a MTM configuration...
I'm gonna use the Hi-Vi SD1.1-A tweeter and cross it over at 3 Khz...any suggestion on which driver to use for the best audio quality?...also I've heard designing the crossover for the M5N can be pretty complex, but will it sound better in the end than the Dayton?...as you can see end result means more than time and effort to me haha :)
Hi, Josh. Unfortunately, this is the type of question that doesn't really have a simple, cut-and-dried, or even technically a "correct" answer. We all interpret audio in our own ways, and quality of sound is completely subject to the opinion of the listener. I may prefer the sound of the Dayton, you may prefer the M5N, and your neighbor may not be able to distinguish a difference between the two. Both drivers are very good, both get good reviews, and either one could work with the tweeter you mentioned, but I cannot say which one would sound better to you individually. Perhaps some other end-users will chime in with their opinions. I apologize that we can't be more helpful on this kind of thing.
