Tang Band W5-1611SAF 5" Full Range Speaker
I'm considering using this driver to build a center channel speaker. If I use a sealed enclosure larger than optimum size, will this have a negative effect on voice frequencies?
No, the enclosure will not impact anything above about 250 Hz.

looking for a full range speaker to use in an open baffle speaker. plan on using the Goldwood 18" subwoofer "1858" in an H frame. Bi amped and passive crossover. Would this mate well, and what crossover would be suitable for the OB arrangement
These should work fine together. The best crossover point would require experimentation but the Eminence below would work.http://www.parts-express.com/eminence-pxb2-500-2-way-speaker-crossover-board-500-hz--290-630

Hi there, I'm using this speaker in a vented enclosure, does it matter where i put the port in the cabinet? Also, based on the above answer of a 1.75" x 3" port, if i use a smaller port say 1" in diameter, does it just have to be longer in length?
The port placement will not matter as long as you leave ample room for the port to breath. If you shrink the diameter you will have to make it shorter to maintain the tuning frequency.

Hello will THIS: http://www.parts-express.com/parts-express-steel-mesh-2-piece-grill-for-5-1-4-speaker-black--260-420 work with this speaker?
No, this grill is going to be too small for the speaker. The closest option would be the 6-1/2" version. It will be larger so there may need to be new screw holes drilled, but it will work with slight modifications.

Would the bass extension of this speaker improve with a cabinet that was larger than the specified 'optimum' volume? Or would the larger box volume actually be a drag on the end result. Thanks,Mike G
A larger box will help with the low end, but only so much. With the Fs of this woofer at 60 Hz tuning it much lower than 40 will not be very beneficial. You could bump the volume up to about 0.7 cubic feet with a 2" diameter, 4" long port for a tuning frequency of 44 Hz.
