Dayton Audio RSS315HFA-8 12" Reference HF Subwoofer 8 Ohm
Can't get win isd to work for me, could someone tell me how this would do in a 3 cu.ft. box accounting for driver and dayton 500w plate amp volume?
Assuming sealed, this volume is about twice what is recommended but it will still work. You would have an F3 of about 39 Hz and in room response into the low 20's. You will want to watch cone excursion at low frequencies in order not to damage the woofer.

Any Body Have a recomendation about an Enclosure my space is a staud bay Deep wall 48" Hieght,13.5 wide 12" deep Can I make a box To fit that space I will be using two of these with outboard amp home theater aplication
The amount of space you have to work with will be plenty for a pair of these woofers. I would recommend leaving it sealed. The SA1000 amp would be a good choice to power them.

Can someone recommend a knock down cabinet for this subwoofer? It will be used in a commercial space with an external amp. thanks!
The best option for this woofer would be the 1.5 cubic foot cabinet below, which is pre cut for the 12" Reference woofers.http://www.parts-express.com/knock-down-mdf-15-cu-ft-subwoofer-cabinet-for-dayton-audio-12-reference-series-ho-subwoof--300-7077

What is the height of the surround above the faceplate? My cabinet grill is 3/4 MDF but I think that may not be deep enough if I don't recess the drivers. Specs on Dayton's site show the faceplate is 3/8 deep. Trying to leave room for excursion
This surround stands about 3/8" proud of the frame so a spacer would be required if you are using 3/4" MDF.

I have an existing enclosure of 3.5 ft which previously held two Eminence DVC12s. The box is a heavily braced sealed design. I was never happy with the Eminence drivers. Are these drivers the best upgrade available? What would be the f3 and f10? Amp?
These drivers would be an ideal choice for that volume. The F3 would be 40 and F10 Hz would be 23 Hz. I would recommend any of our Dayton 1000 watt amplifiers for this application.

Is this driver suitable for a open baffle dipole configuration ?
This will work decent in an OB or dipole design. The bottom end will need some EQ to get the most from it.
