I made a couple of custom boxes molded in my truck. I have the subs already installed. Is there anyway to estimate volume without taking them out? I've already tried to measure the WxLxH but they are pretty irregular. I thought maybe there would be a way to gestimate the volume by comparing the sub to the overall box dimensions. Anybody?

fiber glassed box?
If so you can use water or packing peanuts. I forget how many galons are in a cubic foot, but somone probably does.

1 cubic foot is 7.48 US gallons

D@mn that would be alot of rice!!! Yeah I've heard all those methods before. I just didn't want to have to take the sub out.

Rice is also cheaper and more accurate :)

how do you use rice to figure the volume of the box?

you use it like water..... and put in so many gallons until it fills it up then you can calculate how many cubic feet you got...
