Dayton Audio SD215A-88 8" DVC Subwoofer
Can you recommend optimal box size for using this with 2 of the Dayton 8" passives? Seeking lowest possible F3 in a compact cabinet. Additional mass on the passives too?
I would recommend 1 cubic foot for this, with 75 grams added to each passive. This will tune the enclosure to 30 Hz.

I'm considering using this speaker in an open baffle design along with your Subwoofer Crossover 8 Ohm 150 Hz 200W fed by an NAD C 316BEE. Knowing this is not 'idea', is there anything I should take into consideration with this approach?

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.
