Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 ohm
I put the parameters for this driver into WinISD Pro, with a 4 cubic foot sealed box. If I put enter 900W power, then WinISD shows that XMAX is exceeded below about 39Hz. Does that mean the driver will be damaged with 900W @ 20Hz in that enclosure?
I cannot vouch for WinISD but BassBox shows excursion is fine with 900 watts all the way down to 24 Hz in 4 cubic feet. Even if this is exceeded, it is just the linear Xmax number, the cone on this woofer is traveling quite a bit farther before mechanical damage is an issue.

I am looking to build two of these drivers into a single cabinet the cabinet will be a corner design with forward facing drivers. Because of the corner loading I am wondering if I should go with a sealed 8.5 cu ft or a 15.5 cu ft ported? 7,500 cu ft room
Either design will work and work well, it boils down to personal preference. The sealed design will play higher in frequency to match with a set of mains, so if you have small mains that require a higher high pass filter this may be the way to go. The ported enclosures will have more 'authority' at low frequencies, so if this is dedicated for movies this may be the way to go.

What would be the dimensions of a good ported box for this sub? I have the sub and a Dayton 1000watt plate amp in a ported down firing box I built and it doesn’t sound as good as I hoped. I am planning on building a new ported box but wanted to go with
I would recommend 8.7 cubic feet total with a single 6" diameter, 18" long port for a tuning frequency of 20 Hz. Our 6" Precision Port would be ideal for this application.

I have a build I'm doing with sub firing up and port firing out front side, port is Lshape port 51/2" by 251/2" wide x lengths of 22" then 22" up and out front side. at 6ft^3 without ports calculated in. would this sub work well in that enclosure.
It will work, but it probably won't sound very good. Assuming the volume is after port displacement, there is a huge peak between 40 and 50 Hz with an enclosure tuning of 35 Hz. It will get loud, but will not play very low. I would recommend dropping the port from 5-1/2" to 2" to drop the tuning down to 22 Hz.

Does this driver come with the hardware to mount or will mounting hardware have to be purchased desperately? If they have to be purchased separately, what is recommended?
This driver does not include mounting hardware. I would recommend our 1/4"-20 TPI cast frame mounting kit.http://www.parts-express.com/cast-frame-1-4-20-speaker-mounting-kit--260-778

Would two of these work good in an enclosure like this one?http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=300-766I don't own these yet, but as a side project to my current one, I was thinking about giving them a try.Thanks!
Any driver that will work well in a sealed enclosure will work as dual opposed like this.
