Ok, so I have a 12" kicker comp, here's the box design specs per the manual:

Using this, it seems optimum box area is 2.25^3 ft.

Using the thread, I would want to use a plan that says 2.25 @ xx, such as this one:
2.25 @ 32

Are there any other calculations to take into consideration, or should this design picture suit me just fine?

you need to take into consideration that your woofer will take up some of that room, so you may actually end up with only 2.15 ft^3 or something. you may need a bigger box if you need 2.25

Oh, ok. In the manual it also says 2.25 + port displacement. is that factored in these designs? Is the 2.25 one what I want? (well it would probably be like 2.35 according to what you said)

yeah, that is displacement + port. this box should be fine for you. I doubt you'll notice any difference with only .03-.06 cu ft missing. I would say you should be good with this box.
