I'm not sure, I've never heard anything wrong with square boxes. As long as the airspace is right, then it should be fine.

That is what I always thought but I have heard on this forum that it is best to have the front of the box at an angle.

Just was wonderin' why.

here is the theory ( I don't agree with it ) with a perfectly square enclosure you run the risk of cancelation due to standing waves in the enclosure. But at the length of low frequency waves your enclsoure would be the size of a bus for this to actually happen. :) Unless your enclosure is humongous don't worry about it. :)

looks and a better fit. And it's less likely to tip over if someone doesn't fasten it down properly. :)

Thats all theory, that was stated before, I have personally talked to tech's at a couple of companies that specialize in subs and they say the same thing that's all theory and not realate.
