Dayton Audio SD215A-88 8" DVC Subwoofer
Assuming a 1^cu ft internal volume, what is the best port size and length to get the most SPL around 35 to 40 hz? My goal is high efficiency.
I would recommend a 2-1/2" diameter port that is 8" long in that volume. This will give you strong output down to 30-35 Hz.

Is this a good replacement for the SUB-800 speaker? Is it worth it? Thanks
This will work well in terms of the enclosure volume and tuning, but it will require modifications in order for it to actually fit in the box due to its slightly oversized frame.

How would this be ported best in a Part # 300-7068 (.67 cu ft) box. 8" Dayton SD215A-88 & The Daton 70W plate amp? Or should it be ported at all?
That enclosure is a little on the small side for that woofer, but it can work. With a 2" diameter, 10" long port you will have a tuning frequency of 33 Hz. You will probably have port noise at higher levels however. Your best bet is to use a pair of the matching 8" passive radiators with 75 grams of weight added to each for the same tuning frequency.

I need an 8" subwoofer dual voice coil for my 2007 Rav 4. Do you have any suggestions? I plan on trading it in next year so I don't want to spend big bucks.
Assuming it will physically fit, this Dayton would be a good choice. A cheaper option would be the Goldwood below, but you will have to compare dimensions with the stock woofer to make sure either option will fit.http://www.parts-express.com/goldwood-gw-408d-8-poly-dvc-woofer--290-357

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.
