Dayton Audio RSS315HF-4 12" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
I want bass +- ~3 dB from 28 Hz to 70 Hz for music listening in a ~1300 ft3 room to go with a RS621 pair. I like left and right woofers for sound space; one might do. Should I get this 12" or two 10"? Cabinet volume? Vented?
Two woofers are always better than one for smoother in room response. A pair of 10's will reach 28 Hz vented, but a pair of 12's will do it sealed. A 2 cubic foot box will work fine for the 12's, the 10's will need 2 cubes each, with a 3" diameter dual flared port that is 15" long for a tuning frequency of 25 Hz.

Prefer to power this sub w/Dayton SA230 based on $, phase & other avail. adjustments vs the 500w plate amp. Previous post recommended a 5cu/ft ported enclosure w/4" dia & 17" long port. Recommended amp combo & enclsre for tight music/theatre to ~20hz?
The previously recommended enclosure volume and port will work well for music and home theater applications and reach 20 Hz without much of a problem.

I would like to build a dual opposed sub with these drivers in a 4 cuft box. This would be for a near-field placement between two recliners with the drivers facing each recliner. What's the minimum recommended distance between the drivers?
I would recommend at least one inch of space between the driver magnets.

Would 100 watt Mrs @ 4ohm be adequate to run this for home theater and music? Tia for the advice
In order to get the most from this woofer you really want 350-400 watts RMS. You might be farther ahead using a more sensitive woofer like the DCS305-4 in a vented box which will take that 100 watts farther. The DCS305 in 3.5 cubic feet with a 3" diameter, 10" long dual flared port will reach 21 Hz and over 110 dB output with 100 watts, the RSS315HF in 1.5 sealed will only have an F3 of 42 and reach about 104 dB output with the same power.

I need a sub for a virtual pipe organ. Can this speaker handle sustained notes at high volume in the 20 to 25 Hz range?

Will this work in 1.5 ft3 enclosure (300-7077), how low would this be capable of playing?
Yes this will work in that volume. You can expect response into the low 20's.
