Usually nearfield is good at 1/4" from dust cap. Might need to be a bit farther if a sub with long excursion driver.

Normally only used from about 300Hz down in frequency.

If you measure a port, using a position at the port opening works well.

Depends on the configuration. On my CBT arrays they are several meters from the speakers. The way the wavefront diverges determines if you are in the near field or not. In an anechoic chamber the far field is where the pressure falls off as 1/(R*R) where R is the distance to the speaker.

You really need an an-echoic chamber or room. Lacking that -- you have the next best thing -- your back yard.

Testing software such as ARTA provides a "quasi anechoic" measurement down to around 200 to 300 Hz depending on your room with the mike 1M from the drivers.
