How many days will someone have to sit it out in Dallas county jail for $1500?

If the bond on your husband's case was declared insufficient and a new bond set at $1500, that does not mean he must serve out a $1500 fine. Has a final judgment been entered? Talk with his attorney. Good luck.
This is not a citation that he can just sit out. $1,500 is his bond amount, not his fine. It's either an A or B misdemeanor, which means his fine could be up to $4,000 and his maximum sentence could be a year in jail. If you cannot afford to post his bond, he will remain in custody until his case is resolved.
