Dayton Audio SD215A-88 8" DVC Subwoofer
Hi, I would like to use this driver with a pair of 8" dayton passive radiators, and a 100watt plate amplifier. What would be the best volume for the enclosure? Thanks.
I would recommend 1 cubic foot total with 50 grams of weight added to each passive for a tuning frequency of about 30 Hz.

What would be optimum port configuration to use this in the Knock-Down MDF 0.75 cu. ft. Subwoofer Cabinet ?
I would recommend a 2" diameter, 8" long port for a tuning frequency of 32 Hz.

2 -1 configuration for a satellite system. Bookshelf speakers =8 ohms. This sub can be 8 or 4 ohms. Since there is no separate volume controls from the plate amp (Dayton SA25 25W), do I need to match impedance between the speakers?
In order to use this and the SA25 with two small satellite speakers, you will need another small amplifier to power the satellites. I would recommend wiring the sub coils in parallel for a 4 ohm load to the SA25 and use the speaker level inputs and outputs with a small 2 channel stereo amp to power the satellites.

I want to use this to replace dead subs in a polk RT20P tower speaker, running series. Think these will fit in the holes?
Unfortunately we have no way of knowing. The cutout dimensions for this woofer are on the product page, you will have to pull the original woofer out and compare the diameters of the holes in your cabinet.

What size amp would i want to run with this for a car audio application?
Anything around 100 watts RMS at 4 ohms will be ideal for this woofer.

Yamaha SW-P201 started popping with loud scenes (clipping?). Will this woofer eliminate this? Original driver 6.5" 6ohm 25W (JA1678). Amp output 50W/5. Power consump 42W.
The popping is probably the woofer bottoming out due to over excursion. Without knowing the enclosure volume and tuning, or the Xmax of the original driver I cannot say how this will compare.
