lol.... that number is way off, I think you are getting port volume. Port area it the face of the port which is only two dimensions...so if your port is 2 inches by 13 inches at the opening then your port area is 26 squared inches which is about the size of an ok port for a 1.5 cubic foot box (net).

your port is way to small for that box And like i said the 24inch comes in to play in a port calc by it self while the other two dimensions are multiplied together to get your port area. Read this web site

ok well I cant figure out how to get this to fit in my trunk. The port would make this box huge. These dimensions are for a single sub. I am running two. Would anyone care to help design a box to fit in my cavalier? I would consider a sealed box but I want to wait till I have a better amp.

Ported Box T5-12
Min. Vented (ft.3) 2.00
Port (dia. x length) 4x10
Fb (Hz) 37.96
F3 (Hz) 31.76

Opt. Vented (ft.3) 2.50
Port (dia. x length) 4x8
Fb (Hz) 36.16
F3 (Hz) 30.11

Max. Vented (ft.3) 3.00
Port (dia. x length) (2)4x20
Fb (Hz) 34.09
F3 (Hz) 29.29 28.62 28.19
