Dayton Audio SD215A-88 8" DVC Subwoofer
I have a 23l cabinet sealed with room for 2 8" drivers.If I wire them in series parallel ,will a 200w 8ohm plate amp be fine and is the internal volume OK?
Yes that plate amp will work well for the application. The volume will also work well for a pair of those.

I would like to run two of these with an mtx amp. I would like to bridge the amp but it can only handle 4 ohms bridged. Is this possible? If so how do I run the wiring?
You will have to wire the each set of coils in parallel and wire the two subwoofers together in series for an 8 ohm load.

I'd like to put this into a 5 speaker system in an antique radio cabinet. My thought is to run the lows from a pair of left & right 3-way crossovers into each coil. typical 3-way crossovers look to be in the 600-700Hz range. would this work?
Yes there would be no problems running it this way.

Hello! I have a box that I constructed that has approx 1 cu ft minus the driver volume. With two drivers sharing this box, 200wt RMS for each driver(parallel) should I polyfill it? Any idea the F3 of this config? It's In the trunk of a corolla. Thanks!
With 2 of the drivers in parallel in a 1 cubic foot box, it appears to tune to 62 Hz with minimal or no damping material. Adding any additional damping material will push the tuning up to 66-70 Hz depending on how much is added.

what are the T/S Parameters on this woofer when the coils are wired in series rather than in parallel?i know it shouldn't make much of a difference, but if it does i would like to know.
The only parameters that will change with the coils wired in series will be the Le, Re, BL and sensitivity. The parameters in series are: Le: 4.64 mH, Re: 12.8 ohms, BL: 15.4 Tm, sensitivity: 84 dB.

I would like to know if this subwoofer would be ok to use as a replacement sub in a ford expedition? The truck has a 85 watt stock amp at 4ohms, and a small enclosure. just wondering if it would sound ok? I like clean bass. Thanks
Without knowing the enclosure volume it is impossible to know what kind of response it will have. Chances are it is a better woofer than the stock woofer in general, and if you can get it to fit properly it should do reasonably well.
