Dayton Audio DCS255-4 10" Classic Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Would this sub be happy in 1 cu. ft. sealed box?
This sub is better suited for a small vented box. I would recommend a 3" diameter, 10" long port for better results in 1 cubic foot.

Will this work as a full range speaker in a 410 setup for playing bass guitar?
Originally was looking at the Datyon PA255-8 but thought maybe the DCS255-4 would handle the bass better.I'm playing a passive bass with 500 watt @ 8 ohm/1000 watt @ 4 ohm head and the speakers will be in a ported cab. Playing style is very loud and effects heavy, lots of distortion and octavers
This would not be recommended for bass guitar, the PA255-8 will be much better suited and play significantly louder with the same input power.

What is the xmech?
I see xmax but when do i need to be worrying about destroying the speaker?
Unfortunately Xmech is not available for this driver. With a bumped back plate there shouldn't be fear of bottoming the woofer unless it is being driven well beyond its limits. If this were to happen you would know that it is too loud due to distortion. These subs are somewhat suspension limited as well so that will help prevent any voice coil damage.

Regarding Dayton Audio DCS255-4 10" Classic Subwoofer 4 Ohm Using Bass Box software, can you offer me a vented alignment including vent diameter and length for this driver utilizing a 2 cu ft vented box? Thanks. Jeff Pearce
I would recommend a 3" diameter, 6" long port for this volume. This will tune the box to 33 Hz and give you an F3 of 32 Hz.

While doing a search on replacement woofer for the Peavey Quadra 10 speaker, the Dayton DC S255-4 10" came up. Will this speaker suffice as a direct or better replacement for the Quadra 10 in an outdoor setting?
That is actually not a good choice for this application. I would recommend the Peavey Pro 10, part number 294-3126, or the Dayton PA255-8 which is part number 295-030.

I says .3 ft3 for sealed. If i do that, what kind of performance would i expect from the sub. I was looking to go small. What would be the best small sealed box?
An enclosure that is 0.3 cubic feet will yield and F3 of about 75 Hz and in room response into the low 40's which will work well for music.
