Dayton Audio RSS390HF-4 15" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
What would be a good amp match for this sub?
Just wondering what amp is recommended with this sub.
The Dayton or Bash 500 watt plate amps would both be a good match for this sub.You usually want to keep the power rating of the amp close to the power rating of the driver.

Can these be mounted with screws, or only with T-Nuts?
If screws are possible, what size are recommended?
Screws can be used with this subwoofer (wood or machine type with T-Nuts). The screw hole diameter is 6.5 mm (0.256"). 1/4" shaft diameter screws (i.e. 1/4"-20, 1/4"-28) are recommended.

Can this sub be used in a Pro Audio cabinet with a horn driver?
While it could be done, theoretically, I'd advise strongly against doing so. This driver is not built for the rigors of pro audio, and the frequency response does not extend high enough to really blend well with any horn driver of which I'm aware. I'd recommend going with a standard woofer that is designed for pro audio application.

What is the optimal ported tuning for a box around 5 to 6 cubic feet w/300 to 350 watts?
I've played around with winsid and have a 5ft cube w/2 4" 38" ports.
Have you taken into consideration the room dimensions it will be playing in and the location of the listening position relative to where the subwoofer enclosure is placed? These will all affect the bandwidth you are aiming for, but 1w/1m numbers will not reflect any of these response-changing variables. Even the direction you face the subwoofer will make a world of difference. It could be a tapered transmission line or a front loading horn that's required to yield your desired results. It is possible that no bass-reflex alignment could present the required bandwidth.

What is the ideal sealed enclosure size for this driver with sound quality in mind?Further, what would be an acceptable compromise with how much fill?
Hi J168 Liters will be the minimun to get the best performance.The knee -3db will be arround 28 Hz and the spl will be arrond 114 dB.Make it well braced and sturdy. 1st quality Baltic Birch is my recomendation. Dont use MDF. Will come apart under his own vibration.will shake a lot.BestDavid
