Morel MW-266 8" Poly Woofer
I'm looking at this woofer for a 2-way system using the Dayton .75 ft^3 enclosure. I'm concerned that the enclosure is too small. Would it do well enough if the enclosure is filled with insulation, or should I look at other woofers like the HiVi D8.8?
It depends on what you want from the woofer. That volume will work as long as it is sealed and heavily stuffed, but it will have a pretty early roll off around 60-70 Hz. If you want more extension, porting a different woofer would probably be the best. The D8.8 will also work ported or sealed, but in order to get a decent tuning frequency the port may be too long to fit in the box.

What is the Basket / Frame Material of it? It does not mention on the product page. Thanks.
This uses a stamped steel frame.

So Should i use 5ohms for my 1khz crossover point instead of 8ohms? Since 8ohms inst until 3khz? Erse online crossover calculators ask for low pass impedance, so if i want a 1k low pass i should use 5ohms instead of the nominal 8ohms of the driver right?
Yes that is correct.

Should I use 5ohms in my crossover for 1khz for lowpass w/ this woofer instead of 8ohms since the impedance magnitude chart for it is rated at about 5ohm for 1khz? 8ohm would be about 3khz which would be to high to cross this woofer. using Erse calcs
Most crossover modeling programs will use the DCR of the driver instead of the nominal impedance. This would provide more accurate crossover values for the driver if you have no way of modeling with the full driver impedance file.

Sorry for not clarifying, I have the Morel CAM558 Soft Dome Mids (you guys offered for a limited time)crossed at 1khz and Ill be using the Morel CAT308 Soft Dome Tweeters at 4khz for a 3way system. All 2nd order slopes, Any foreseen problems? Thanks!!!!!!
There should be no issues with those crossover points using those drivers.

Would this woofer be okay crossed at 1k with a morel dome? 2nd order crossover, i just worried about reaching excursion limits to early.
We really don't have any dome tweeters that will handle a second order crossover at 1k unfortunately. The crossover point has no effect on cone excursion.
