The output above 50hz  is equal to two TH118s.  It doesn't go as low as the Th118 however.

The woofers are the 15" version of the one used in the TH118s and the same woofers in the BC415

For those interested in that sort of thing

Interesting, indeed. 

Any recommendation of practical lifts?  Opinion on minimum practical height?

2 people (decent roadies), can lift it up and put on another cabinet that is 45" tall.

40" would be easier.

30 or 36" is pretty easy.

A genie or similar picks it up real easy.  I would recommend a lift rated for 400lbs on the forks.

So it depends on needs.  For a drummer-just sitting on the riser is fine, or a block of audio wood under the front.

For sidefills, put it on a road case.

For DJ use, put some "audio wood" under the front to tilt up (an adjustable angle stand will be available soon).

A few questions.
Powered version available? If so, where would it cross, and could it be tuned for either stand alone use or use with a sub?
How would a single TH118 fare below it (keeping with the 40" lift theme above a bottom cabinet) and where would you cross it over?

Getting an amp into it is something we looked at, but the size/weight would have to increase in order to get an amp to fit.

So-for now anyway-it is not available self powered.

The TH118 would "run out of gas" a good bit before the SM80 would.  But it would add some depth to the sound.

I would probably low pass the TH118 at 45-50Hz.

The SM80F is a good bit wider than the TH118-and heavier-so it would be a bit unstable.  I would not feel safe with that setup.

It does have skids on top and bottom if you wanted to stack it on top of another SM80F, and use the lower one for lows only.  It won't go any lower-but would be a bit louder.

A better match would be a pair of DBH218s or PG218s in terms of matching up output.

The skids match up with the DBH218 and interlock.

I can't quite see how much if any horn path length can be squeezed in there behind the woofers.  Is this more of a bandpass than tapped horn in the bottom?  Makes sense since it's not trying to be super wide bandwidth.
