I've heard that the square is about the worst shape you could have when building speaker boxes. Any truth to this? I'm going to make some boxes for 6" speakers that I'm going to mount in my boat... what shape (and how big) should the boxes be for the best sound?

Thanks,

A sphere would be interesting to do, and hear. Someday I will build one.

Do not worry about the shape. What type of speakers are these brand etc?

These are 6.5" Infinity Kappa Marines.... What size does the box need to be, volumewise....

So.... make a box of any shape and throw in some insulation? Does size matter at all?

I'm going to have a sub, so bass is not really important from these speakers...

If you email the manufacturer's tech / sales area, they usually provide a good idea for your application.
