How does this design look guys. I am also trying to figure out the exact cubes. How do I determine what the panels take up?

Thanks for the help I plan on starting the build tommorow.

run the port straight back. put the sub on the front of the top and not the back

hmmm ok. How bad is this design?? due to the placement in my truck this was an ideal setup.


I am reworking it right now though to the way I think your saying. I will post that in a few min.

:uhoh: How do you NOT know what the internal volume is? You need a design to use SketchUp properly, I wish people would listen. It doesn't have anything at all to do with audio, and is completely unnecessary.

I think your misunderstanding my question. I had a design and that was it. the max volume of the not counting the port was about 1.5 cubes. I need to calculate the space the port takes up. my goal was to stay near 1.25 cubes.

go **** in someone elses cheerios. On a side note thank you for the tutorial it was great. :D

You're definitely going to be using more than .25 cubes for the port, but I can't be sure as to how much without knowing the port area.

I still don't see how you could have a design and not know the port displacement and internal volume. That IS a box design really.
