Tang Band W5-1138SMF 5-1/4" Paper Cone Subwoofer Speaker
Hi if I was going to build a small bookshelf speaker using this woofer what would be a good tweeter for this and crossover thanks
I would not recommend this woofer for a two way design, it has a very limited upper frequency response. Finding a tweeter that will cross low enough is possible but can be costly. One of the only options we have that would work with the proper filter would be the Dayton Reference Series tweeters.

This SW in a 6x6x12" (ext dim) box (.123 cu ft with .75" thickness). Sealed or ported? Know its specs prob better sealed, but want max low extension at sacrifice of SPLs. Suggestions for porting? Could possibly go to 6x7or8x12" box, but no larger.
This woofer needs about 0.75 cubic feet to really work well ported. In the volumes you have I would recommend sealed.

Will this speaker work in isobaric setup front - to front?
Yes it will, although this driver already works in very small enclosures and mounting them in an isobaric configuration will not benefit you in terms of sensitivity or output.

Assuming I build a sub enclosure using the recommended 0.26 cubic ft volume & tune to 35 Hz, what would be the port diameter & length (flared port...does not need to be standard diameter)?
I would recommend a port that is 1-1/2" in diameter and 10" long for a tuning frequency of 40 Hz.

I have an enclosure (under car seat) of 0.33 cubic feet, using 2 inches ID bellmouth port, how long should the port be inside the enclosure (I can run elbows)?
The recommended port length for this volume is 20" which will provide a tuning frequency of 36 Hz.
