Tang Band W3-1053SC 3" Full Range Driver
What is the mounting depth?
Raw drivers sold at Parts Express usually have three dimensions at the end of their specifications, "A" is the overall diameter, "B" is the cabinet cutout requirement, and "C" is the mounting depth.This driver has a 2" mounting depth.

Looking at the impedance curve, do these need a Zobel circuit to play the highs accurately in a full range application?
A full-range application would not use a crossover at all, so it would not need a Zobel circuit. Zobel circuits are only used to flatten the driver's impedance curve so that a passive crossover crosses over at the correct frequency. If you don't have a crossover then there is no reason to flatten the impedance curve because it won't have any effect on what the speaker puts out. If you attach this speaker directly to an amplifier then you will get the frequency response shown in the datasheet; if you then put a Zobel network on it then you will get pretty much the exact same response, only this time the impedance curve will be flat.

what diameter port and length
In an enclosure that measures 4" x 5" x 6" (internal), a 1" x 2" port will be appropriate.

If measured diagonally, what's the distance between the mounting holes? 80mm?
I need two 8ohms drivers to replace two deads Logitech Z-2300 speaker drivers. Im' not sure if I should get 3" or 2-1/2" drivers. The original ones have 80mm diagonally or 56mm horizontally/vertically between the mounting holes, as shown in the picture uploaded. Thanks in advance.
This is 84mm center to center diagonally.

Are these something you plan on stocking consistently
It seems these frequently go out of stock . . . is this something that PE is committed to stocking long term? I've got 8 on order for a line array experiment but if that goes well I will be ordering more.
These are not a buyout or closeout item, and to my knowledge, they are something we plan to carry into the forseeable future. I've heard nothing to indicate anything to the contrary. We have plenty in stock as of this date.

What are the mounting holes distances from center (horizontally and vertically.)
Center to center, the holes are approximately 2-5/16" (59mm) apart horizontal or vertical, or 3-5/16" (83mm) if measured diagonally.
