Dayton Audio C1500K 15" 250 Watt Powered Subwoofer Kit
I have a pair of vintage mono tube amplifiers. They have 4 and 8 ohm taps. I use the 8 ohm for a pair of very fast monitor speakers. How would I connect this sub in my 2 channel home audio system? I don't care about hearing sonic booms. :)
You would have to use the speaker level inputs and outputs on this subwoofer amplifier in order to wire that all together. You can see how this is done in the manual below.http://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/manuals/300-803--dayton-audio-spa250-manual.pdf

how do you think this would measure up against a PAIR of your sub-1200's
Two 12's will have more displacement than a single 15", as well as better room placement options for smoothing out overall response. I always recommend two subs over one for this reason.

is this setup designed to be used with the amp bass boost on or off? anyone know what the f3 is with it on vs off? or will there be sound issues if its off? room is about 14 by 17 9 foot ceiling.
We usually recommend turning the bass boost on for a sealed subwoofer. The F3 without is 43 Hz, the F3 with is 33 Hz. You will ultimately have to try it both ways to see what you like the sound of more.

I am just looking for pointers on the uses of high level and low level inputs? I think it depends on the amps configuration, right? Is it better to use one or the other? Thanks for any help!
The high level inputs are recommended if there is no dedicated subwoofer output on the receiver. If the receiver has a subwoofer output, this will be the best connection to the subwoofer.

Is the C1500K ported
No, this is a sealed design.

So I've had this speaker for almost a year (connected to Harman Kardan AVR 3600). I think it's an awesome speaker, and a few weeks ago had a blow (on the amp) and static. Parts Express fixed it (great job, thank you), but two minutes after it was connected I heard a soft pop, and then it started to static (I immediately turned it off). Does anyone have any suggestions?The settings on my speaker is:Auto-OnPhase NormalGain/Frequency just under the half-way mark (around 40%Plugged into mono-left
I would buy a simple volt/ohm meter [see suggestions below] if you don't already have one. I think you may have a melted voice coil that could be presenting a dead or close to dead short to your amplifier. When you disconnect the speaker wires, you should get a reading about 10 to 20% below the speaker's impedance [3ohms for 4ohm speaker/6ohms for 8ohm speaker] that's natural. A reading of zero=a dead short. That is the way of subwoofers. They get hot. The only other source of static, is in the cables [assuming the preamp and amp are OK]. BTW: a setting of gain at half way, does not mean half power. You can overheat anything if the signal to the plate amp is strong enough. It's called "gain structure".
