Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
I have a Vizio S5451W‑C2 54" soundbar 5.1 surround sound home theater in a box. Would this make a noticeable improvement in the sound of the 8" subwoofer included in this setup?

Can this sub be run in free air configuration? If so does the power handling change?
It can, but you will want to watch excursion. The power handling won't change but the driver will reach its mechanical limits with as little as 100 watts.

Thinking of this in a tower design in the sealed box portion low passed at 80-100Hz with TB W8-1808 in OB for the remaining ranges above. Would like to cross higher for the sake of the full range driver, but don't want to get boxy. Is this high enough?
The crossover point will have to be determined by listening tests. Generally when you get above~100 Hz the sub can be localized unless it is within close proximity to the full range driver. It will handle a higher crossover without a problem, but determining the final crossover point will be up to you.

Can i use this as a replacement speaker for my sub 800?
It will work, but there won't be much improvement over the stock driver, so simply using it as an upgrade isn't very practical. If there is something wrong with the stock driver it will work, but a cheaper option that would work better in that enclosure volume would be the DCS205.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dcs205-4-8-classic-subwoofer-4-ohm--295-200

I have the Polk PSW303 subwoofer and was wonder if Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer is a good replacement sub for that enclosure or are there better options?
Actually the best option for that enclosure would be our Dayton Classic 8" subwoofer which you can see below. You will have to double check mounting dimensions, but this is a great match for the enclosure and amplifier.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dcs205-4-8-classic-subwoofer-4-ohm--295-200

I am confused by the recommended box volumes and the reviews, questions and answers on this page. It seems like the specs call for a very small box, while people are sharing stories of making much bigger vented boxes. What's the deal? Optimum box?
There is no such thing as an optimal box. The application and needs are what will determine the proper enclosure for a given woofer like this. Tang Band subwoofers are notorious for requiring tiny vented enclosures and very long ports rendering them not very practical. To combat this you increase cabinet volume to maintain a lower tun which enables the use of a shorter port.
