Dayton Audio RS270-8 10" Reference Woofer
How do these woofers work with passive radiators?
Hi, I have a pair of Sansui SP-20000 speakers, they use 10" woofer.I'm looking to update the 10" woofers.My speakers come with passive radiators, I would like to know how this woofer work with a passive radiator.
These will work well with passives but without knowing the specs of the passive radiator we cannot tell you how it will perform.

i want to run this in a 3way crossedover at 250hz low pass in a .95 sealed enclosure. is this viable
There should be no problem crossing these at 250 Hz. A .95 cubic foot sealed enclosure will work well assuming it is heavily stuffed.

Dayton 12" Reference Woofer?
The Dayton 10" Reference Woofer has good specs, but do you have a Dayton 12" Reference Woofer with somewhat lower Fs?
The only 12" Reference woofers we have are the subwoofers on the site. These have been used as woofers playing as high as 6-700 Hz in a few different designs however.

This with an rs28f...
What would I want to use to fill in the missing chunk between 1200Hz and 2500Hz? Suggested crossover?
Dayton reference midwoofers or the dome midrange would be a good match for the speaker you describe.You could cross high to the Dayton Reference Dome midrange, maybe around 1000 Hz. Or you could do an MTMW with Dayton reference 4" or 5" midwoofers. You could cross much lower like 350 or 400Hz if you used those.As far as crossover slopes, that depends but remember that the tweeter will need at least a 2nd order crossover and an Lpad, the midrange will need a passband filter (and if you use the dome midrange, a small Lpad). It's not an easy task to design a 3-way from scratch.

Would this be suitable for a bandpass enclosure or something like the Decware "Wicked One"?
No. For a subwoofer application, you want to choose a subwoofer driver, rather than a woofer such as this. We do have a good selection of 10" subs, I might suggest our Reference Series subs, linked below for your convenience. Go with the HO if sheer SPL is the main objective, or the HF if fidelity is more the goal. Both are very nice subs.

Would this speaker be compatible in a sealed box cab. or does it need to be ported?
This speaker can perform well in either a sealed or ported alignment. It is generally accepted that a sealed enclosure will provide "tighter" bass response, while a ported enclosure will yield lower overall low frequency extension. You can choose the enclosure based upon your own personal preference, or the specific application for which you'd be using the speaker(s).
