They are about 7.5 cuft each so they would do well with 2 each at 1,100 watts per driver. Really I am rebuilding the two that i have, and adding two more for the final product, just adjusting the depth so the rear drivers don;t bang against the rear wall when they are running hard.

See above, but yes, polyfill will be used at least in mine. Not to make the drivers see a "larger" cabinet but to quell the resonant freq's of the box itself. I always use poly as well.

However, for music the Dayton has this "weighty" sound to it that may be what you describe as a "deeper tone". Whatever it is, I love it and hope I won't be losing that with the SI's. I need to chill, but I'm paranoid by nature. I guess if worse came to worse I could probably sell the SI drivers and buy Daytons, hopefully it won't come to that though.

Man, with the T/S parameters being soooo close in almost
every regard, it makes me wonder if this "deepness" could be from the cone matetial itself? Aluminum vs paper...or is that way out in left field?

Not cone material but more the fact that the SubM if it was active, had a HPF setup on it where the dayton did not. I know you measured them equal but I would think the SI's with their extra displacement would be able to delve deeper than the dual 15's and that was what you actually were hearing. The additional displacement of the SI's even if the subM was passive would still account for this fact.
