I've been looking around and I see alot of people use the ZEnclosures box, but it's sealed is what I glean.
Now I'm getting a 12" Kicker L5, and I went over to Custom Sounds, and they quoted me $250 for a custom ported box for the RX-8, I was wondering whether you guys believe that is worth it, or if the sealed ZEnclosures for $150 would be a better buy. Cause I am really stuck between ported and sealed...not knowing what is better.

It's as easy as this; a ported box will be louder, will be bigger and not as accurate as far as response time; a sealed box will be smaller, hit harder at lower bass notes and will reproduce the notes more accurately. With a 12L5 I'd rather have it in a large sealed box versus a small ported box going off of kicker's specs. Save yourself $100.
yea thats what my buddy did, and it sounds great. i have two 10" memphis in a false floor box, looks sweet and sounds even better, but it all depends on what your going for, from my experience a custom box has almost always looked better for the shows, but if sound is all your goin for i would say the zenclosure would be just fine
