For optimal performance there is really only one size for the box .Firstly, you get two different types of subwoofers, an open air, or closed air sub. If it is an open air sub ( hole with mesh in the center of the magnet) no ports are required, and the box should be sealed on the inside with silicone sealant. If it is a closed air sub ( no hole in the magnet) you need a 50mm port about 120mm long. If it is a 12 inch sub the box size will be 13 inches x 13 inches x 13 inches. Hope this helps
That amplifier is 900W x 1 @ 2ohms.
If your subs are 4ohm SVC wired Parallel, resulting in a 2 ohm load, each sub will only see 1/2 of the rated power. (450W ea.)
Your gain (sensitivity) setting should be between 75% and 85% to max. You will be fine.
There is no "best" its a matter of opinion, and fabrication. I have installed $75 subs in the properly fabricated and tuned enclosure that sound like $300 sub in a pre-fabbed enclosure. For volume, you will need a vented enclosure. For sound quality, a small sealed. Both have pros and cons. SoloX 10 is 2500W rms 5000W peak.
Kicker is plastic. Solobaric may be your best choice in such a small space, however soundsplinter makes an 8" RLi sub that will kick a$$ in the proper enclosure.
When looking to buy, compare x-max : as this is the linear distance the cone will move. More movement = more air displacement = more volume.
Depends on the type of music you listen to and the type of sound you want out of the box. If you're looking for "as loud as possible", you'll probably want a ported box, as this will make the output of the sub peak at a specific frequency and drop off at others. If you wanted more of an even response across many frequencies, a sealed box is probably best. Kenwood has recommended sizes in the owner's manual.
