Dayton Audio RSS265HF-8 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 8 Ohm
Will this be a good match for a Boston Acoustic A100 speaker system?
I would not recommend this as a replacement for that speaker system. This is designed to reproduce sub frequencies only and will not handle a crossover high enough to match with a tweeter. Something like a GRS or Goldwood 10" will be a great match for the enclosure you have and be better suited for that speaker system.

What size closed box - and why is this product best in a closed box?
I am planning on using this in a 3 way closed box. I understand it is "best" in a closed box. I do not understand how this can be determined from the specifications. Also, I was planning on about a 3cuft box, but some comments and answers suggest that is a large box for this speaker. Will 3cuft be detrimental to the characteristics of this speaker? Is that based on Vas of 1.82cuft? Should a closed box always be below the Vas?Have I asked too many questions???!!
Yes this is best suited for a sealed box around 1.2 cubic feet being "optimal". There are a combination of specs that determine box type, Qts being one of them. Usually speakers with a Qts of .4 or higher are better suited for sealed enclosures. Your best bet is to put a divider in the box to create a smaller volume for the woofer, anything between 1.2 and 1.5 cubic feet will be best and give you a nice low in room response into the upper 20's. The Vas is only slightly related to box volume but there is no rule of thumb based on the number alone.

Does it need an amp for itself
If it's part of a stereo 3-way loudspeaker (tweeters, mids and subs) Does the subwoofers need amps for themselves or the power from the main amp is enough to drive the subwoofers and all the other speakers?
You do not need a seperate amp, however this subwoofer is fairly low sensitivity so you will most likely need to pad down your mids & tweeters to match the output.

Inquire about this subwoofer in a ported box
Single 10"Front long rectangular vented sub boxMounting Depth: 13"Air Space: 1.14 Cubic FeetVented EnclosureDimensions: Width 16" x Height 12" x Depth 14"
When you already have a box you limit your use of drivers. You can adjust or seal the vent. If you look at the Speaker Builder tab and then woofer selection guide - you can narrow down some choices. Whatever your choice, including those not on there, you need to search online for a "box calculator" where you plug in the driver specs. It will then give you performance curves for sealed or ported and if ported the length and diameter, along with box volumes... It's a fun project - albeit a bit time consuming until you find exactly what you're looking for.

best plate Amp?
best plate Amp? for one or 2 in the same box. I guess would use a single 4 ohm if using only one. In a small sealed home design for music what box size range would be ideal?
I would use the bash or dayton plate amps you could use to 300 or 500 watt bash amps, or the 250 or 500 watt dayton amps with this sub. 1 cuft sealed looks to be a good size for the enclosure. The 500 watt amps will give you more headroom, but in 1 cuft be careful because they can push this driver into overexcursion.
