Dayton Audio ST210-8 8" Series II Woofer
Would this be good driver as a car subwoofer in a .38 cubic foot enclosure, driven by a 200 watt Rms amp? I'm looking for a solution to provide a musical, not boomy sub in a smallish Subaru Xv Crosstreck (hatchback). I don't have a lot of space...
This is an excellent woofer but not the best choice for your application. I would recommend looking at the Dayton RSS210HO-4 instead which will work very well in that volume.

Was there a prior series to the Series II? I have a Dayton ST210-8 here 6-7 yrs old and was thinking of buying another to match up with this one but wondered if I had on old model with different specs than the Series II. (not sure if mine is series II.)
The Series II woofers have been available for more than 10 years and there are no predecessors. If you can, email a few pictures of your woofer to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try to identify it.

Bought and installed this woofer in a 0.8 cubic ft enclosure with a 1.5" diameter port that's currently 6" long. Low end seems very thin and wondering if port is too long. What would a good length and tuning frequency be for this port to improve the bass?
I would highly recommend changing both the diameter and length of this port to help with the bass response. Right now you are tuned to 30 Hz which is not only a bit low for this woofer, but a 1.5" diameter port will have chuffing power compression problems even at low volume levels. I would recommend no less than 2.5" diameter for this. We have a single flared, press fit style port that would work well and raise the tuning frequency to about 43 Hz, it is our part number 260-478.

i want to use 2 of the st210-8 in each enclosure is possible to vent only one of the woofers has anyone done this
It is possible but not generally recommended. These will provide the best results in a vented box, sealing one woofer will not benefit you.

HIVI M8A OR ST210-8
I AM WANTING TO USE 2 8 " WOOFERS IN 2.9 CUBIC FT. SEALED ENCLOSURES CROSSING TO M6A MIDRANGE AND DA PT2C-8 TWEETER WILL HAVE TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE 125-150 WATTS RECOMENDATIONS AND WHY THANKS MIKE
This volume is actually about double what both choices would like to have. The Hi-Vi has a lower F3 however which would be a better performer on the low end achieving an F3 of 60 Hz.

Will these replace JBL M#408g factory woofers?
The Series II woofers are quite robust and fairly versatile. I recommend them on a regular basis. However, we do not have any kind of cross-reference by brand, model, or anything of that sort. If your JBL woofers were 8 ohm, and the cabinets will physically accommodate the Series II woofer, I'd recommend giving them a try. As far as being a "direct" or "drop-in" replacement, I'm afraid I cannot guarantee that it would (or would not) be such.
