Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
Would this sub work in a vented .6 ft enclosure installed in a f150 crew cab? The resonant frequency of the vehicle is around 34 ha , what would be the suggested tuning frequency and round port specs?
This woofer will work in that volume but the port would have to be external due to the length unless you got creative. The recommend port size is 2.5" diameter and 15" long for a tuning frequency of 38 Hz.

I am using (2) w8 740p Tang subs. Want vented enclosure, roughly 24 in long, less than18 inches wide (12 in is better) and less than 20 in tall. Trying to fit a Jetta w/sub w/o filling trunk. What size box and port needed?
I would recommend overall internal dimensions of 10.5"H x 8.5"W x 22.5"D with a 1.25"H x 8.5"W port that is 20" long for a tuning frequency of 36 Hz.

Building a base for a fullrange speaker to sit on using 3/4'' MDF. The dimensions would be 12'' h x 9.5'' w 14'' deep. Total box volume would be 0.608. Would this work as a sealed enclosure for this driver?
Yes that volume would work fine with this woofer.

What enclosure would be the best for this driver? Sealed, Ported, PR. I want to build it a small sealed enclosure but is there a chance that with its crazy xmax that it would make a vacuum on the surround and rip it?
Small sealed will work well. The surrounds on this woofer are thick enough that it will not deform due to any vacuum pressures from inside the enclosure. A volume of 0.3-0.5 will work well.

what is the volume of this driver? I'm making my own cabinet for it.
This woofer has a displacement of 0.058 cubic feet.

Hi, Looking at the part# 300-7064, the .56 cu. ft. cabinet might also work with the w8-740P, it is closer to optimal and also cheaper. What size port or passive radiator would be acceptable with this cabinet? Thannks
This volume will work well but only with passive radiators. I would recommend two of the 8" Daytons with 75 grams of weight added to each, which will provide a tuning frequency of 38 Hz and and F3 of 40 Hz.
