Tang Band W3-1876S 3" Mini Subwoofer
Will 4 of these perform well in a single enclosure or should they be divided and ported individually. I was thinking of using 4 of these in a custom c
speaker cones are wave end ports they form a vacuum if they beat at the air too hard for their size. sound is not made in a vacuum. air is like a fluid at low pressure,it doesn't like to move, a 3 in piston can't vibrate what it can't couple to,nor can it move the air faster than say 6k,so small speakers have a low end of may be 150 hz. the systems have no bass no matter how many you use. i.e. use sub woofer, and good x'over to a good tweeter ,other problems are comb effect from too many drivers producing almost the same sound at a different point in space, mtm systems have no more than two mid woofers. read up on theile and other good high end designs and copy them with parts express goodies! keep it simple until you can understand what you are hearing!

Is the x-max meant as "peak to peak" value (ie. +-2.5 mm) or is it a "one-way" displacement?
Xmax should give the distance the voicecoil can travel, + and - from center, while keeping an equal number of turns of the coil in the magnetic gap.

Box internal volume
What would be a good size box for this driver. I am hoping for ported for a higher SPL. I am planning to put two of these in a small cabinet with these 264-805. I am going to make it a portable box or "boom box"
Contrary to popular misconception, Vas is not an indication of the proper enclosure volume for a speaker, but is one specification used to calculate such. This speaker does happen to model well in a 0.03ft³ vented enclosure, but the sealed volume would only need to be 0.009ft³ or so. With something this small, experimentation would be inexpensive, easy to do, and would be my suggested method of determining the "right" enclosure for the job.

I am getting all sorts of different answers with various programs. I have a cylindrical enclosure of 3" inner diameter. Would like a proper enclosure for this driver. It seems to work best ported. Can someone tell me what they think is the best volume and port size? My port length cannot exceed my cylinder (total enclosure) length. Port diamater cannot exceed 3" cylinder diameter as that would exceed my enclosure diamater. Port needs to reside inside cylinder volume so that must be added to overall enclosure volume. Is this possible? I know this one is a challenge. Can anyone knowledgable enough figure this one out?
This woofer requires a slightly more than "optimal" volume for its enclosure due to the port length. If you were to make the 3" ID tube 15" long with a 1" diameter, 10" long vent you will have a volume of .0614 cubic feet and a tuning of 58 Hz. You will achieve the best results with heavy fill.

I have a speaker design with .15 cubic feet, and I am struggling to find a subwoofer for it. And then I find this thing, that can work in even less room. I don't need it to be extremely low, perhaps still string at 55 hz or so. Any other options out there?
This is a very good option for a small enclosure. It will reach 55 Hz relatively easily in that volume.

Is there a Frequency Response Chart for this?
Looks like there is one in the data sheet:http://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/specs/264-909-tang-band-w3-1876s-specifications.pdf
