Dayton Audio SD215A-88 8" DVC Subwoofer
Is this a good replacement for the SUB-800 speaker? Is it worth it? Thanks
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.

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.
