View Full Version : Can someone help me calculate internal volume?

Wood thickness 0.75

Width at all sections is 13"

All dimensions are outside dimensions


I need vol before displacement

The box is for a SA10, which im assuming is about 0.12 displacement?

When i split it into 2 boxes, i get 1.38ft^3

Actually its 1.5685221 cu ft before sub displacement subtract .12 for sub 1.4485221 cu ft after displacement ir .12 is correct for sub

LxWxH then divide by 1728 to convert cu in to cubic ft dont forget to subtract wood thickness on all sides

I finall different recommendations for this sub:

Sundown Sa10

from sundownonly.com
Displacement 0.10 ft^3

Sealed box 0.5 cu. ft.
Ported box 0.75-1.0 cu. ft.

from ssa:

1.25 - 1.5 cubic feet tuned to 30 - 35 Hz
Yields F3 in the mid to high 20s


0.55 cubes for 0.707 Qtc alignment
Yields F3 of 50 Hz

Ive used multiple calculators and get ~1.4ft^3

12-07-2011, 01:44 PM
I get 1.65cu ft before displacement :(

why is this so hard lol...

im taking 2 boxes:
12.75 x 12 x 13
8.25 x 15 x 13

and putting each into 12v calc:
add them up
subtract .1 for displacement

Are u subtracting 3/4 inch .for wall of box on each side. 1.56 before displacement 1.4 after not that .1 of a cube is a big deal but I figured using cu in and converted to cu ft about as accurate as youll get.

Tune it to 30 hz and call it a day.

pro-rabbit confirmed it was 1.39ft^3 before displacement, and going by the SA10 .10 displacement spec that would be 1.29ft^3...

Going to try a 3" x 15" aero port for a 30hz tuning will let you know how it sounds.

Sweet not sure how my numbers got that fat but both figures show your right where you need to b either way. Let us jnow how it turns out.

I would like to know said formula used by pro rabbit. The above mentioned is the only one I know for cu ft or maybe I hit a key wrong putting it in if he used same formula.

will do!

[(10.5*11.25*11.5)+(14.25*6.75*11.5)+(0.75*6.75*11. 5)]/(12*12*12) = 1.46 ft^3 before displacement.
Far left rectangle, far right rectangle, airspace you subtracted from the wood thickness in between the two main rectangles that actually exists, divided all by 12^3 to change in^3 to ft^3.
