Do you have a picture? Guessing it's a ferrite bead that is acting as an RF/EMI choke or filter. Basically, it helps reduce any high frequency content (noise) that may be on your speaker...

I like the HF15 sub, the HO sub... not so much. What amp are you considering? How big is your room? In general, the HF15 requires less amp power and a smaller box. The UM15 will hit a few db...

The volume is good. The tuning is good. Looks like you essentially have 3 ports that are 11"x1"x18.89". I'd bump the height of the port up to 1.25" to get under the recommended 1:9 width to height...

Yup!
12/2/2 is a better choice if you can find it locally. It would have a black, red, white, white with stripe, and bare ground. Perfect for two 120V circuits.
12/4 typically has a black, red,...

If you didn't buy the cable yet, check the price of 12/2/2 or 12/4. Run (2) of either of those for your circuits... it's the same as (4) 12/2.

Do you know what version the Definitive PowerField 15 is? The plus version rated at 500W RMS would be a good buy at $100.
