Dayton Audio SD270A-88 10" DVC Subwoofer
Is this the same driver as SD270-88 sans shielding? The reason I'm asking is that I currently use two SD270-88 per side in an open baffle, and they sound great. But I want two more per side for lower excursion and higher output capability.
Yes these drivers are virtually identical in terms of performance. The overall sensitivity dropped a touch without the bucking magnet to aid the motor strength but this should not be a deal breaker.

I've had a pair of these for a few years now. They perform great. I'm lookin to do a diy and was thinkin of the dayton designer 5" and dayton 1 1/8" silk tweet. Seein the subs fs so low; would it work well in a vented size box but without the port?
You will have to elaborate on "vented sized box" since this could mean about anything. These will work pretty well in either type enclosure but the volume of the box will determine how low and loud they will play.

What would the volume of the box need to be if I plan on using the matching 10" passive radiator with this sub? Also would this sub function well in a down firing configuration?
The recommended volume for this woofer and the matching PR would be 3.8 cubic feet with no weight added to the PR. This provides an F3 of 33 Hz and a tuning frequency of about 28 Hz.

Looking to run 16 of these into a 1 ohm load is this possible?
Yes this would be possible. You will need four sets of four each wired to 4 ohms, then all four sets wired together in parallel.

I purchased a pair of these subs with the matching radiators thinking that it would be an easy build, well, I was wrong. I was wondering if there may be someone who could give me a box design for this kind of setup, thanks, Mike.
I would recommend 2 cubic feet with 150 grams added to each passive radiator. This will tune the box to 27 Hz and provide an F3 of 32 Hz.

How do you wire this speaker for an 8 ohm application?
Unfortunately you can't. This can either be wired in series for 16 ohms, parallel for 4 ohms or have each coil wired separately for a stereo 8 ohm load. You could technically use only one coil, but this will change the parameters of the woofer and the box specs will not be the same. You might want to consider our Designer Series DS270-8 instead. this is a similar style and will work in similar enclosures but is a single 8 ohm coil.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-ds270-8-10-designer-series-woofer-speaker--295-432
