Size of the woofer is no indication of what type of music it will play well. As what type of box design also does not dictate whether a particular genre of music will sound great out of.
I listen to predominately rock and use a 15 ported. Sounds incredible. My son can get in and play rap/hiphop and it will leave you awestruck. The box design is the biggest make or break for a subwoofer. A well designed ported will out do a sealed any day.
Honestly, For your sub, Do a ported tuned to 35 hertz. in car it will get into the 20's audibly. make sure you have enough port area to keep port velocity down, port compression and port distortion down as well.
I am traveling for work so do not have my modeling software here with me. I can model it when I get back home tomorrow night.
