Tang Band W5-1611SAF 5" Full Range Speaker
Could I use this along with the TB W5-704D for additional bass and mids in a .73 cu ft cabinet? If so, what type of port would you advise? Thx!
I would not recommend using two different woofers in the same chamber. There is no way to properly model it, and they would not act the same. I would recommend at least separate enclosures, using only one driver for low frequencies.

Will the W5-1611 SAF work in this larger enclosure?
Been surfing around for box designs for FR driver.Using WINISD, I tried 1800 cu.in. enclosure with a 2" port x 2" long.9" w x 36" h x 8.5 dI have seen some designs up to 2500 cu. in. and biggerWant to make sure I can get the max bass, thus a larger box would be in order.Thx
Assuming you use heavy fill in the enclosure this volume will be ok. Your power handling will be limited however so you need to watch cone excursion at higher volume levels.

will this clip before my tweets and woofers?
planning on using as a midrange. my tweets and woofers can handle like 80 watts. at high volume are the tweets and woofers still gonna be hungry for power. and will this midrange speaker start to clip? im using a 100watt rms per channel receiver . oohhhh also when pairing speakers together does dc resistence come into play at all? for example a woofer and tweet have the same sensitivity yet the dc resistence is like 6.3 to 7.5.
Speakers don't clip, this only happens to amplifiers. The point at which this driver will be thermally limited depends on its crossover point and the overall volume it will be played. Midranges are generally crossed somewhere between 300-500 Hz which means they will get less than 20% of the input power. Assuming this is crossed over properly it should not have issues with the amplifier power.

What would be the ideal enclosure?
I'm interested in using this driver as a full range and I am wondering what type/size of enclosure would be the best.
.2CUFT SEALED 5/8 MDF BUILT ON THE GOLDEN RATIO 8X10X12 OR JUST NOT A CUBE, STUFFED WITH POLY-FIL,, I THINK IT NEEDS TWEETERS SIMPLY BECAUSE IT'S HARD TO GET A 5 INCH CONE TO MOVE ABOVE 2500 HZ ACCURATELY [THE PHASE PLUG IS FOR MID-RANGE DISPERSION AND NOT TREBLE OUTPUT] THE TIME AND EFFORT PLUS A LITTLE MORE COST FOR TWO WAY WITH SMALL TWEETER WILL BE WELL WORTH IT IN THE LONG RUN
