Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
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.

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.

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?
