Default box for 4 kicker 12s

A friend recently got a system package from a shop and it consists of 4 12" Kicker Comp's in a custom sealed box, 2 subs up 2 subs back. Box is made out of particle board(not MDF) and is about 4-4.5 cubes sealed. Some off brand amp that actually pushes them but he wants louder. Car is 94 Buick Lesabre(huge trunk). I need some recommendations for a new box. I was thinking 8 cu ft tuned to 36hz with 110 sq in of port?? He can go bigger, upto 9 cubes. New box is gonna be slot ported all subs facing trunk lid along with the port. What you guys think? Should he go bigger on the box? tune higher(wants to hit high notes), more port?discuss

you don't think I should tune higher? like 36-38hz?
I mean the guy likes the really high notes that you would get with a prefab ported box, he's willing to give up some of that tho.
