That seems to be your standard answer for everything.

Well I hate to tell you, but you need to upgrade your amp first. The problem with the Daytons is they are single 4 ohm VC's, so you have 3 wiring options. You can choose from 1 or 8 ohm bridged, or 4 ohm stereo. Well the 1000 isn't capable of 1 ohm bridged (I know of no amps that are), and 8 ohm won't pull any power at all. So your only other option is wiring for 4 ohm per channel. Rated power per channel on that amp at 4ohms is 350watts.
Now compound that with your sealed setup, and you are going to have serious output issues. The only way to make sealed setups play loud and low is multiple drivers, and/or big power. What reasoning do you have behind going sealed? You would be much better off going ported. You will easily gain 3db's (probably more) from the ported setup around port tune. Now sealed will play lower as you don't have issues with drivers unloading after tune, and needing a HPF in place. Once again though, this is with proper power, etc.
If you are dead set on going sealed, I would highly recommend upgrading to an amp capable of at least 700wpc. You can cheat the power game a bit by building a larger cab, lowering the qtc and gaining output; but if you decide to go this route and add more power down the road, you run the risk of bottoming drivers due to the enlarged airspace.
I'd recommend you download winisd and play around with different configs, so you familiarize yourself with what you can expect from each design. JMTC.
Oh and P.S. That xover on your receiver is an LPF, not HPF.
