Use a program from the internet or a free one called Winisd. When a box is tuned to a certain freq, the output of the speaker will be louder when you send the desired freq to the sub. example: Say i tune my box to 32hz (which is about normal tuning freq.) My sub will get loudest from 28 to 47hz theoretically.

box is round 3.39 cuft
outside measurements : 26 in. wide x 17 in. high x 16.5 in deep
