Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
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.

Does there happen to be a part number for repair kits for these? I have 2 of them that need new dust caps.
Unfortunately there is not a specific repair kit or replacement dust cap for these woofers. You will have to measure the diameter of the existing dust cap and purchase a replacement that is similar or slightly larger in diameter.

I have a sealed box with .15 cubic feet of space. I want the deepest sound I can get from it. I have up to 270 watts available to drive it. What would be the best driver for this box? The W8-740P seems like it would be a nice choice.
This woofer will work well in that volume as long as you keep it sealed. Depending on application, this will play into the low 40's in a home and low 30's in a vehicle.

I need an 8" replacement speaker for my Polk Audio PSW120 Powered Sub Woofer. I think this one might fit the bill. Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated. THANKS.
I would recommend the Dayton DCS205-4 for a replacement in this subwoofer.
