What do you want to acheive? loud means bigger box and port....therefore, 1 -1.5cuft would probably be the volume. SQ means sealed and smaller box .75 -1cuft. I am not familiar with kicker, although we did hit 143 db in a 1984 S-10 single cab. with 2 premier 12" subs...Ported at both ends, separated in the middle, subs as close to the middle as possible. Check out box building sites, you shouldn't go wrong.

Without knowing what you're after (as Bill said above) we can't offer help. These figures should help you out. There are lots of online box calculators to help with ports (if applicable) and box shape/enclosure design & volume.

I didn't realize that kicker shallows, were not so shallow??? Most shallows for 12" are about 3" mounting depth. 1 -12" kicker in the right box should create a lot of bass.
