Peerless 830656 5-1/4" Paper Cone SDS Woofer
I have a TriTrix Transmission Line enclosure and 4 of these drivers.. Will they work well in this enclosure. I know that TriTrix designed for dayton but just want to know whether it can be used as a replacement and what kind of outcome to wait out of this
Without a proper way to model a transmission line enclosure I cannot say how well these will perform. With a higer Q and Fs the low bass will likely be boomier than using the Dayton drivers. It will probably not be ideal, but the only way to really know is to try it out and see if you like the results.

Would these work as replacements for a pair of Optimus Pro LX5's?
Unfortunately we do not have a direct replacement for the LX5 speakers. The cabinets will have to be modified for these to work properly.

Could I pair up the Vifa D19TD-05 tweeter with dual 5 1/4 Peerless 830656 . I wanted to try to make a center channel as hobby project, if spkrs are a good match. What X-over would I need. I have led tv. would I need shielded spkrs?
Yes these drivers will work well together. I would recommend the crossover in the link below, if you are using two woofers you will have to move the jumper on the crossover to the 4 ohm setting.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-xo2w-45k-2-way-speaker-crossover-4500-hz--260-148

I have one of these in a center channel as a sub, problem is, my volume is .407 ft3. Can I tune this using 2 small ports? or just one?
You can use one or two and get the same result. With one I would recommend 1.5" diameter and 4" long for a tuning frequency of 47 Hz. With two you will need 1" diameter and 3.7" long for the same tuning frequency.

Mixing 5.25 drivers?
I just installed the Tang Band 5.25 drivers ( The 31 dollar ones) In an enclosure I built and used with Dayton classic and GRS speakers.All 5.25 size. I move them around as I build new enclosures. This one is 4 ft tall x 15 inch deep x 8 inch wide. My version of a transmission line.Ported out the bottom. So I was thinking of taking the GRS pair out of the lower holes and putting this 19 dollar Peerless in as both Tang Band and this is 8 ohms.Besides it sounds pretty good with the 6 dollar GRS pairs in the lower holes now. What is your thoughts? If it does not satisfy I can always build more enclosures and move the Peerless .I experiment a lot.
I think these will provide a good overall responce in your boxes, but likely not the same as your Tangs. If you built your boxes based on the Theil specs for the Tangs then another speaker is operating in a less ideal environment.These are awesome for the cost and will play well in a good box.

Watts in series or parallel?
I see this is rated at 60 watts RMS. If I wire two parallel. How many watts will the pair handle? Or if I wire the two in series.How many watts will the two take?
With two drivers, you get to double the power handling.'nuff said. ;)The question actually becomes what your amplifier will do when presented with a 4 or 16 ohm load. Another important question is what you need such wattage for anyway... Two of these will be about 90 db/W efficient... I expect most of your listening will be around 1.5 watts or, if you want to rock-out like a teenager, about 12 watts... I'm using, as my L and R channels, a pair of 15W RMS single driver speakers and they do everything I need them to.
