Dayton Audio DC380-8 15" Classic Woofer
Sealed, vented, how big?
For a music application, F3 ~30Hz or so, what size and type of enclosure is optimized so to speak for these woofers?
A sealed around 4 cuft might get you close to a 30Hz F3 with some room gain, f3 of 45Hz and -7.5dB at 30Hz.Otherwise a 4-5 cuft ported with two 3" ports 13" long.At 5 cuft ported your f3 will be 30Hz without any room gain. The 4 cuft rolls off a bit sooner 33Hz F3 and will most likely give you 30Hz F3 in room.

Automotive recommendations sealed/proted enclosure size?
running parallel to amp with 200-250 watts. Could the enclosures mentioned in previous question work?
A 2 cubic foot sealed enclosure would be ideal for this in an automotive application. It will give you an F3 of 50 Hz which is right where you want to be.

I would like to replace my 15" woofers in DIY cabinets, If i paired this with a new 3 way crossover could i get it to range from 40hz to 800/1000hz in a sealed 4.5ft^3 that's the sweet spot i need.
This woofer will cover that range without a problem in that volume.
