Dayton Audio RSS315HFA-8 12" Reference HF Subwoofer 8 Ohm
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
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.

If this sealed sub calls for 1.5 cu ft and you want two in a box, how many cu ft should it be? Any considerations for making them both front firing (vs. opposed to each other)?
When using two drivers, the box volume doubles. The orientation of the drivers will not matter, but a dual opposed design will cut down on cabinet "rocking" at higher volume levels. For a home application, two separate subwoofers are better than two in one box for room placement options. This helps smooth out room nodes and peaks.

Looking at RSS315HFA-8 to replace a NHT1259 that just broke. Was in sealed cabinet 3.9 cu ft but never very happy with low end, read in the reviews and the specs how this speaker works well in either and good lows. Suggestions changing to ported box?
I would recommend porting the enclosure using a 4" diameter Precision Port that is 17" long for a tuning frequency of 20 Hz.
