Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
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.

Can this subwoofer be used as free air on the rear deck of a 4 door sedan?
No, it would not be recommended.

What size amp should do i need for this? Also are there any boxes for this that are recomended that i could buy?
Any amp that is rated for 100-200 watts RMS into 4 ohms would work well for this subwoofer. Our SA100 or the Yung SD200 would both be good options. The only enclosure we have that would work well with this woofer would be the 0.75 cubic foot knock down type below.http://www.parts-express.com/knock-down-mdf-075-cu-ft-subwoofer-cabinet-for-dayton-audio-8-reference-series-ho-subwoof--300-7075

I am building a box for a Tang Band w8-704p 6.5x9.75x27 outside measurements in inches. Int. volume .606 cf. I see that using a 3in port would need to be 20in. Is it possible to use a 2in port of shorter length or would that hurt performance?

I am a newbie when building speaker boxes and will be building a sealed enclosure for this sub. It states that the sealed enclosure should .11ft3, does include the volume of the driver already?
yes, that would include the displacement of the driver.

Hi, I want to build 2 boxes. One sealed, which you answer a question about, and one ported. I know the ports must be long with this sub, but what port size would you recomend if I built a 9x9x20" (0.60 cu ft) box and which PE port would you recommend?
The port for this volume would have to be 3" in diameter and 20" long. Unfortunately we do not have any ports that will work for this unless you purchased a Precision Port kit and added an extension tube. This port would have to be external.
