Tang Band W3-881SJ 3" Cast Frame Neodymium Driver
I want to run this full range in portable speaker box and was thinking of adding a high pass filter. Should it be 80Hz or 100Hz. I would like to get as much bass as possible from this but I don't know if 80Hz is too low, will it distort at high volumes?
This driver will have excursion problems regardless of the high pass setting. In a Bass Box model assuming an optimal volume, excursion is reached at 250 Hz with only 5 watts. This will make a great midrange but it is not intended for bass output. I would recommend something like the Dayton ND90 instead.

the ported size is listed at 0.18ft^3 @ 64Hz. What port dia and length would that be? Also, is the photo out-dated? Description says it has a black phase plug. It looks like a normal dust cap to me. thx
The port size for this driver would need to be 1" in diameter and 1-1/2" long for an F3 of 63 Hz. The photo is accurate, I do not see where a phase plug is mentioned.

Please confirm the overall outside diameter. The TB specs are contradictory and I doubt that the 3.19" listed here is correct.
You are correct, the actual diameter of this driver frame is 3.66". I will have the website fixed.

Will these make good rear and side surrounds or do I need to pair them with some tweeters?Thanks.
For most applications these will work fine by themselves, whether they require a tweeter or not is up to you in the long run.

Is this Tang Band W3-881SJ ever going to be available? The due date just keeps sliding.
I am a customer like you and do not work for PE. My assumption is that because this Tang is such a great speaker and value (read the reviews) it is in demand and perhaps on a buy list. I would place an order and get your place on the list.

What is a good sealed enclosure size for this speaker?
You'll want to utilize a box calculator and plug in the provided specs. When it asks for the Qts, specify .707 That gives you the flattest response and the calculator will then provide you with the box volume and F3 or 3db down point for it's response.
