Tang Band W3-881SJF 3" Full Range Speaker
Just curious to whether a tweeter is needed with these. I know in most cases it is preferable but can i get away with not using one. These will be to replace some old AL computer speakers so not looking for absolute perfection in terms of quality.
Nine times out of ten a tweeter will not be necessary with a driver like this. These extend well into the top octave and are very popular when used my themselves.

What is the recommended enclosure dimensions for a sealed box? What tuning frequency can I expect from it?
I am looking to build small cube speakers from these drivers. Each cube will consist of only single driver and nothing else. I want to build 5 of these single driver speakers for my 5.1 home theater. Do I need to add additional tweeter to get adequate highs? What crossover frequency should I set my sub-woofer to?Thanks.
Recommended volume is 0.04 which would be internal dimensions of 4.5" x 4.5" x 3.5". This volume provides an F3 of 200 Hz and expected in room response of around 100 Hz. Adding a tweeter will be up to you. These should supply enough high end for most people but there are some people (me included) that prefer a tweeter for the top octave.

Will four TB W3-881SJF vertically aligned handle more power in a sealed enclosure with an added sub woofer
or a tuned t-line enclosure
Four of these will handle four times the power as one. Either enclosure will allow the same power handling, these will not be suitable for anything below about 150 Hz. They would have to be wired in series/parallel in order to stay at 8 ohms.

would these work as a decent small cube suround speaker? enclosure sealed or ported and port size
Yes although a vented box is recommended. With internal dimensions of 4.5" x 4.5" x 5" and a port that is 1" diameter and 3 long you can expect a tuning frequency of 99 hz.
