Dual 10" ported box.. questions

I just picked up a pair of really nice band new Sony Xplod's :P!

XS-L104P5B's never been used, still in the box.. buddy has no use for them now that he has an S10 Sweeeeeet deal for me. lol

So I was wondering.. what kind of enclosure should i put these in? I calculated some stuff, and a proper band-pass box puts me up in to the 9-11 cubic foot range.. and that's way to big. lol So I was leaning towards some ported designs.. definitely not a sealed box. I do not like they sound at all frankly.

I was thinking, do I make one box but have two seperate enclosures and port for each sub? or have them share the enclosure and have two ports in the box?

Also! what amp should I use for these? they are gonna be weak with my 340 Jensen powering them.. I need a new amp! What do you suggest?

What car is it going in?
What music do you listen to?

As for the amp, you're going to want something that does between 500rms - 800rms @ 2 ohms

It is going in a 1981 Jetta. fairly big trunk, all metal surfaces.

I listen to classic rock probably %60 of the time.. but the other %40 is stuff that needs to pound.

2 ohms? will that work if they are 4ohm subs?
