I have 2 Ascendant Audio Avalanche subs, and im building a new box for them, but Im having trouble with the face. I dont want it to be flat up against the tail of my car and i want to fill my trunk, but still see the subs, i wanted to put a 45degree angle for the face. the base of the box is 37" across, and 40" depth, now i dont kno how to calculate how long to make the face, and dont know how long to make the sides, and top. Thanks for any help.

I can help you out but I need your max dimensions, height/width/depth and the volume you want.

But if you have a calculator the lenght of the face would be: height X rad(2)

Not sure what to do except for to just try it but i know there are people out there that have done a 45 degree angle, its very common. Any help!!?!?! Please reply if you know what to do.

look at the box calculators for slanted or angles boxes.

right, i understand on the internal volume and everything, but if i have the base and for the face, cut a 45degree angle and slant it back to connect to the top, i dont know how long to make it so it lines up perfect with the base and top... understand what I mean? Its hard to explain I guess and unless someone helps Ill have to try mulitple pieces to see what I need. Thanks again tho for the help and if anyone else has ideas reply ASAP!

A squared plus B squared = C squared

Ok let's try again...

Measure Straight down from top to bottom of the box. That's height H

Now take H and multiply it by the square root of 2.

H * rad(2)

That is the length(or height) of the face.

dont forget the beveled ends iif you want to flush the angled piece up to the horizontal top and bottom plates...
