your port is too small. the port area should be around 30-35

no, making the port area bigger will reduce box volume. Just start over and do it right the 2nd time. 12-15^2 per cubic foot of box, so around 25^2 or so would work...

found the problem.. it was an air leak.. tightened one of the screws on the sub to the box.. and viola.. all fixed.
