Dayton Audio DC300-8 12" Classic Woofer
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.

Yes those woofers will work well in those cabinets.

can i use this woofer or other woofer, in a diy subwoofer cabinet, and a dayton plate amp ?
Yes there are hundreds of options for this application. This particular woofer is better suited for a 3-way cabinet and not very well suited for subwoofer duty, although we do have a Dayton Classic 12" subwoofer that would work better.

Usable frequency? Want crossover at 2k for 2-way format.
Hello- I wan't to cross these 12" speakers using a Dayton audio 2-way 2k crossover? Can they handle it? I have an old set of home sealed speaker cabinets that are 2-way design using a 12" woofer. They are 1.55 ft3 volume. I plan on using a Selenium ST-200 super tweeter for the highs. Or should I be looking for Daytons Pro audio woofers or PRV pro woofers? High xmax and a lower Qts.
I think you are good with your intent and crossed at 2khz. Nice picks should sound solid.
