Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 ohm
I wanted to know how much huff and puff I will get if I Put this into a 6 cubic foot net internal with the 6 in precision ports flared port 17 inches long. My sim says that I will get around 46 m/sec of port velocity. Will I get chuffing?
According to my sim the velocity is closer to 25 m/s and that doesn't account for the flared ports. I doubt you will have noise problems.

I see that the db is measured by 2.83v/1m... Can you tell me what the db would be if measured to 1w/1m?
The SPL rating at 1w/1m would be about 89.2 dB.

If this driver is surface mounted--not recessed--how thick does my speaker grill frame need to be so that the fabric does not touch the rubber surround? Thanks
I would recommend a grill that is at least 2" thick to allow for surround clearance.

Sanity check from reading previous questions and answers, but if I'm not mistaken, 3 of these in a 22-ish ft enclosure with 6 total 4 x 17 inch ports would work well? All with their own SPA1000 and own 15amp circuit.
Yes that alignment should work well.

I have seen several diy builds with the RSS460 and I haven't seen anyone beviling the inside of the cabinet, is this not necessary with this driver? (I may be using a 1.5" baffle, and recessing the driver. Thanks!
Beveling or chamfering the inside of the mounting cutout is not necessary for this or most drivers that are 10" or larger.

HT use; What enclosure dimensions & volume (accounting for woofer displacement) do I need to hit 17Hz, and what size and length ports? At a minimum I would use the Dayton 500 amp, 1000 if it is highly recommended.
Internal dimensions of 26"H x 22"W x 28" with two 4" dual flared ports at 24" long each will tune the enclosure to 17 Hz. I would recommend the 1000 watt amplifier for this application in order to get the most out of the woofer and have headroom available.
