Tang Band W5-1138SMF 5-1/4" Paper Cone Subwoofer Speaker
I'm thinking of buying this woofer for a diy sub build, and I want to put it in a Denovo Audio 0.67 cu. Ft. Box with the Dayton audio 25w plate amp. If I use this combination, what will the lowest frequency be?
How well will this driver work in a Push/Pull Configuration? Would I just double the recommended sealed? And is that .1 Cubic ft. or .2? If I arrange the drivers such that both are facing forward, I lose the Harmonic cancellation effect?
This depends. If it is a standard push pull configuration the volume doubles, but if it is isobaric (drivers facing each other) the volume will be cut in half (0.11). I'm not sure what you are referring to with harmonic cancellation effect.

I bought the tri trix speaker kit and I'm not happy with them. Was thinking of buying the tang band Subs to replace the Dayton woofers. Then cutting the cabinet in half, sealing the cabinet and adding a 2 inch port in the back.
I would not recommend doing this. The Tang Band subs will not play well into the midrange to blend with the tweeter. If the Tritrix don't have enough bass for you, I would recommend using those Tang Band drivers as a dedicated subwoofer.

What is the ideal sealed enclosure for this driver? Would also some sort of resistive pressure release in the cabinet benefit also?
The ideal volume is 0.1 cubic feet, but 0.2 will work well and drop F3 a few Hz. The enclosure needs to be completely sealed.

I am designing a compact subwoofer for near field monitoring purpose. I can't find the right off-the-shelf port that will fit. If I use just one Dayton SD175-PR 6-1/2" Passive Radiator, what is the range internal volume necessary to work well?
I would recommend a volume of 0.27 cubic feet for this combination. With 40 grams added to the passive you will have a tuning frequency of 40 Hz and an F3 of 45 Hz.

I just ordered the neodymium version of this speaker, and then realized the ported box design I have calls for this ferrite driver. Are they close enough to be interchangeable?
Generally speaking, yes. There will not be enough of a difference between the two to need to make changes to the design.
