Dayton Audio SD315A-88 12" DVC Subwoofer
say i wanted to use this driver in a sealed tube shaped enclosure. i ran the t/s parameters through some speaker design software .it said roughly 1.5 cubic feet for a volume for a "normal" rectangular box. would this be the same in a 1/2 inch wall tube ?
Yes, the volumes will be the same regardless what shape the enclosure is, the shape has nothing to do with how the airspace interacts with the driver.

How well would a 0.85 cubic ft box work for one of these subs?
That volume will work well sealed, providing an F3 around 60 Hz and in room response into the 30's.

Thank you for your help. You have a very knowledgeable staff. Will this work well with the Dayton Audio SA100 100W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier in a 265 sq ft home theater?
That driver and amplifier combination will provide plenty of useful bass output in your space. If you need very loud bass (reference-level home theater playback), you may want to consider a more powerful driver and amplifier combo.

How well would these work on a 6x100W TDA7498 Class-D Amplifier Board, with 4 other 100 watt speakers wired, then this sub wired to the last 2 spots?
This should work perfectly fine.

i was wanting to put 4 of these in a suv. please advise on sealed or ported box and the size. thanks
I would recommend sticking with a sealed design for these woofers. A total volume of 3.8 cubic feet will provide an F3 of about 60 Hz, with in-car response into the low 30's.

I plan to put this sub in an old box, 2.1 ft3; 12.25" D, 15.9' W, 19.1" H. The box has a 3" port, 3" long which can be modified. Can you recommend port dimensions for optimal performance with this box? thanks
The volume will work very well for this woofer. I would recommend extending the port to 10" for a lower tuning frequency of 27 Hz.
