    primarly the only time you "tune" or build a box for a sub is when the sub will be ported or vented. im asuming these will be sealed

    as far as what amps to get, it realy depend on your budged, and voice coil config of your subs. i recomend US amps.

    and as far as a amp witing kit, if i plan on pusing those subs to there fullest potential, your gonna need 2000 watts, wich requires and large gauge wire. your gonna need 0 gauge wire. i receomend street wires.

    fine-tune a box can mean size/space as well. If the box is a bit too small for a pair of Type-X's (dont know specs of either) then the use of polyfill would change the acoustics.
