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

would this be a good upgrade for a klipsch synergy sub 12?
The best woofer for that enclosure would actually be the Dayton Classic 12" subwoofer below.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dcs305-4-12-classic-subwoofer-4-ohm--295-204If you wanted to use a Reference series sub, the RSS315HO-4 would be the best option.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-rss315ho-4-12-reference-ho-subwoofer-4-ohm--295-466

This says optimized for large enclosures, I have a large ~10.5 cu.ft. 2x12 ported box which I am looking to upgrade. This sims well, but the HO-44 (295-467) goes a little flatter/lower (f3~15Hz). Am I missing something, or suggestions for my box?
The best option for that volume is the RSS315HFA-8. The HO-44 will lack output and sensitivity in such a large enclosure while the HFA-8 will handle full power and have 3 dB more output per watt overall.
