Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Would you recommend the SPA500 as an amp for this? I want to build a 1 cubic foot sealed enclosure for my living room.
Yes, the SPA500 will work well.

I wish to try these in sealed sonotube cabinets; how much extra space should I allow for the internal displacement of the driver's basket, and motor?
This woofer displaces about 0.083 cubic feet.

Help! Opinions needed for music only application for stereo sealed subs and have 400+ watts/channel. My question is which sub to use, the RSS265HF-4 10" or the RSS315HF-4 12"? I am using an electronic cross integrating them with a mtm scan-speak 5'' kit.
Either subwoofer would be a good choice, but I like to err on the side of "too much" rather than "not enough" when it comes to bass, so I recommend the 12" Reference subwoofer. Just make sure to follow the recommended enclosure alignment and you'll be in good shape.

Any feedback on sealed -vs- vented enclosure in a Home Theater application? Additionally, vertical floor firing -vs- horizontal room firing? If vertical floor firing, how far off the floor should the sub be situated for optimum performance? Many thanks!
In a home theater application, a vented cabinet will give the most output. I would recommend using these drivers in a forward-firing configuration unless having the drivers visible would be unacceptable to you. In that case, they could be used in a down-firing configuration without problems.

How low and how well will this do for music in a small sealed .7cu ft box with the Dayton SPA 250? Thank you!
This will work well in that volume sealed and reach into the low 30's.

I saw a project on the PE site that used the 12 inch ultmax drop down box and the 12 inch hf woofer for a great sealed setup for music applications. How about doing the same with the 10 inch ultimax sub box @ 1.2 cubic ft with the 10 inch hf 4ohm sealed?
The RSS265HF-4 will work in that enclosure but the recessed cutout will not be quite right. You might consider using the 1.0 cubic foot box for the RSS265HO instead. The cutouts will be perfect and there will be no appreciable difference losing that 0.25 cubic feet of volume.http://www.parts-express.com/knock-down-mdf-10-cu-ft-subwoofer-cabinet-for-dayton-audio-10-reference-series-ho-subwoof--300-7076
