Dayton Audio DCS385-4 15" Classic Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Building 3.8 ft3 sealed, which amp would work best boost or no boost? 90% used for movies!
I would recommend either the Dayton SPA250 or Yung SD300-6 for this, both with boost.

Will this work well in your SWC-15?
The rabbit cut will need to be enlarged in order for this woofer to fit properly, but it will work well in terms of volume.

So, the recommended box volume is 3.83 ft.³ and the compliance volume is 10.98 ft.³ Would I be correct in assuming that if I made the volume closer to the compliance volume the F3 would get closer to the drivers FS? What other effects would there be?
In this case yes, the larger volume will drop tuning and F3. If you want the most bottom end possible from this driver, a 10.5 cubic foot enclosure with two 4" diameter, 17" long dual flared ports will tune it to 18 Hz and have an F3 of 17 Hz.

I'm thinking about building an Isobaric with a pair of these (size concerns) but I could use advice on the enclosure. I'm thinking a downfiring clamshell slot ported...but I'm getting mixed calc results. Thoughts?
I'm getting a modeled volume of 6.8 cubic feet with a slot port that measures 1.5"H x 12"W x 20"L for a tuning frequency of 18 Hz.

I'm interested in pairing this with the dayton 250w plate amp. Can you tell me what the optimal size would be for a sealed box in order to get a Qtc of .707 and the Fs down to 35hz where the bass boost of the amp kicks in?
The recommended sealed box for this woofer for a Qtc of .707 is 3.8 cubic feet.

I purchased 2 of what I believe to be this 'classic' subwoofer, some 15 years or so ago. One is still functioning. The other just recently blew. I'd like to know if the voice coil / basket assembly can be repaired? Please let me know. Thanx.
This is a better question for our speaker repair department. Please send them an email with pictures of the woofer for identification, firstname.lastname@example.org.
