Peerless 835017 12" Aluminum Cone XXLS Subwoofer
Would like to try to use this in a passive radiator setup - I don't see a "matching" passive radiator. Is matching a passive radiator to the driver important? Would 2 Dayton 12" passives work? Should I stick to the 2.64 vented box size as specified?
A pair of the Dayton 12" passives will work but you will be excursion limited to about 100 watts. Anything beyond this will likely cause physical damage to the passives. That volume will work well, I would recommend adding 200 grams to each passive for a tuning frequency of about 27 Hz.

(determined using BassBox 6 Pro High Fidelity suggestion) Vented Volume 2.64 ft.³ Vented F3 29 Hz, with a port diameter of 3", what is the required depth, how low a frequency should I expect to achieve.
In that volume I would recommend a port length of 13" for a tuning frequency of 21 Hz. This woofer should be able to reach that relatively easily. I would also recommend a dual flared port to help reduce port noise and higher levels.

The ideal sealed volume is given as 1.04 cuft, however that seems like a pretty tight fit (putting a 12" driver into a box 12" on a side). Would this work in the 1.5 cuft knockdown box kit (#300-7077), with or without modifications to the box?
Yes this will work in that enclosure without modifications.

I HAVE NOTICED THAT THE SVS SUBWOOFER MODEL BP2000 USES THIS DRIVER AS WELL. IT GOES TO LOW TO 19hz. IF I DECIDE TO GET THIS SUBWOOFER HOW LOW CAN I GO IN A VENTED ENCLOSURE? HOW BIG THE BOX SHOULD BE IN INTERNALLY IN FT3??? VENT DIMENSION?
The optimally flat vented box calls for a volume of 3.6 cubic feet total with a 4" dual flared port that is 17" long for a tuning frequency of 22 Hz. You could increase the volume to lower the tune, but this design will still reach upper teens relatively easily.

What size sealed box would this sub require?
Also, can this sub be used for car audio?
I WOULD USE ANOTHER TYPE OF WOOFER FOR CAR AND AT THE PRICE I WOULD CALL TECH SUPPORT FOR EXACT SIZE, APPROX 1.25 CUFT WITH HEAVY BRACING ,3/4 IN MDF,POLY FIL STUFFED AND DECOUPLE IT FROM FLOOR WOULD THUMP WELL ,,BUT THEN THE DESIGN TO GO UP TO 1000 HZ WOULD BE WASTED ,, IT IS MEANT FOR THREE WAY DESIGN
