    ported will be best, but sealed will be smaller and more convienent.
    id go with ported, you can tune your box to lower frequencies and make the sub sound better IMO.
    now how big of a box? your going to have to do some reasearch or have a member here design one, like ram designs or buck.

    this might help with port size/ length :Car Audio - PORT Size Calculations and Formulas for WOOFER and Subwoofer BOXES
    good luck with your new system

    Kickers in general like a big box. I've designed boxes for L5 and L7 that have been in the 5-6 cubic foot range, tuned at 32 hz.
