Dayton Audio SD215A-88 8" DVC Subwoofer
Building a sub to fill in lows for W3-881SJF bookshelf speakers. Planning a 4th order bandpass using a 10" PR in place of a port. This appears to give a flatish response to about 25Hz at expense of gain. Will the speaker survive this treatment? 25W amp.
Yes this woofer will work fine for low to moderate volume levels. I don't see there being a problem with only 25 watts.

Have a single cab truck thinking of getting 2 of Dayton Audio SD215A-88 for my truck.They well be in separate enclosure which the Volume is .4 Cubic Feet. What amp would I need to run the subwoofers?
The amplifier below will be a good choice for a pair of those, with one woofer on each channel.http://www.parts-express.com/boss-r3002-riot-600-watt-2-channel-mosfet-car-audio-amplifier--265-3982

Hey guys, If I buy 2 of Dayton Audio SD215A-88 8" DVC Subwoofer what kinda Amp would I need to run them. Do you guys have links to some?
The type of amp depends on if you are powering both together, or separately. If you are powering them together, something like the Yung SD200 would suffice, providing about 100 watts RMS or so into an 8 ohm load. If they are being powered separately, the Dayton SA70 would work very well.

What would be the best box design for one of these for listening to mainly rap/hip-hop and some EDM? Or, would this be a good subwoofer for this purpose? Doesn't need to be stupid loud as its a $30 subwoofer, but i'm looking to add a decent sub to my dorm
I would recommend a 1.3 cubic foot vented box using our part number 260-478 for the port. This will tune the box to 30 Hz and provide a good mix between output and extension.

I have a 2-way 8ohm speaker with dual 4ohm 8" wired in series and a 1" tweeter. Need to replace 1-8" & was looking at the SD215A-88. Fits budget and is the exact size 8.5" OD. Would it be a good replacement wired parallel? not sure of cross over freq.
Since you need an 8 ohm woofer load, this would not be the best choice. I would recommend the DS215-8 instead which uses the same frame but has a single 8 ohm coil.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-ds215-8-8-designer-series-woofer-speaker--295-430
