Dayton Audio DC300-8 12" Classic Woofer
Hi, I am looking to replace the dry-rotted Realistic 12" woofers (#40-1026)in my 20 year old homemade boxes. My boxes are about 2.66 cu.ft with 3 inch ports roughly 4.5" long. Foam installed on 3 sides and bottom. Would these be suitable replacements?
Yes these will work. Right now the enclosure is tuned to about 33 Hz, you could make the ports 8" long and drop that tuning frequency to about 26 Hz for smoother in room response and more extension.

Can I use 2 of these 8 ohm in parallel to replace a 4 ohm speaker on my Cerwin Vega T-12 using the original crossover with no alteration?
Aside from the obvious cabinet modifications, adding a second driver in parallel will boost the sensitivity up 6 dB from a single woofer. Depending on the actual sensitivity of the original driver, two may overpower the mid and tweeter in the cabinet.

I want to use this in a 3-way system - mid and hi in their own sealed compartment. What would the recommended port volume be for a vented enclosure?
Using the recommended vented volume that is online, A port that is 3" in diameter and 4-3/4" long will tune the box to 23 Hz.

What is recommended band pass subwoofer configuration tuned at around 40-50 hz for this woofer? (volume of each chamber and the port dimensions)
I would recommend chamber 1 being 1.8 cubic feet and chamber two being 1.4 cubic feet. Chamber 1 will need a 4" diameter port that is 6.5" long for a tuning frequency of 48 Hz.

Is this the same driver that's in the Dayton Sub 1200?
Unfortunately no, we do not sell those drivers separately.
