One of these in a 3 cubic foot sealed box? Doable? Would be using up to about 1500kh. Or ported?
A sealed box would be a .53 qtc which is not necessarily a problem, just a little larger than normal. Porting will provide a little lower F3. Either one would be suitable for this application though.

How will this speaker work in a 1.25cf cabinet with a 2000hz crossover to tweeter?
This woofer will work well in that volume sealed. It will also work well with that crossover point.

Hello, would this driver perform well using a Dayton XO3W-375/3K crossover in a 1 cubic foot sealed chamber of speaker enclosure?
Yes this would work fine as a woofer in that volume with that crossover.

I have 4 of these from a previous project now sitting in a drawer. Would these do well in a sealed 4x10 cabinet for bass guitar? My 1x12 Basslite does not have great enough clarity in the fundamentals.
Bass guitar speakers have a very wide frequency range, and are also high in sensitivity (so they produce the maximum SPL possible for the amount of power input). These drivers may work as a "subwoofer" or low-frequency only cabinet in addition to your existing cabinet, but I don't know if they would have enough top end for your needs, and their sensitivity is lower than the type of musical-instrument 10" drivers commonly used in bass guitar amplifiers, so they will need more power to push them to the same output levels. The sensitivity of a 4x10 cabinet with drivers wired series-parallel for an 8-ohm load would be about 90dB 1W/1m.
