Hello all! Some assistance needed on amp/enclosure

I was curious on what suggestion anyone would have for this sub I picked out, as far as what kind of enclosure would be good and what amp to power it, and any other suggestions. The sub I picked is an Alpine SWR-1242D.
This is a link to the specs, thanks in advance for the help!

    The sub are rated at 200-500rms:

    pdx 1.600 will power the sub fine, small foot print, clean power, and a 20%+ headroom (the amp is underrated, so watch the gain).

    As for the enclosure, this really depends on what you want the sub to do. If you want sq go with sealed. And if you want spl, go with ported. I've tried ported and sealed boxes, and I prefer sealed.
