    How do I calculate Volume

    How do I calculate the volume on a custom fiberglass box I made. It is my first box and I want to know if I can put 1 or 2 10" subs. It was molded in the car and has all types of grooves so how can I know the internal volume on this enclosure.

    thanks
    rick

    1 US gallons = 0.133680556 cu. feet



    Ive also heard of using packaging peanuts to measure the volume of a fiberglass box

    water is still way more accurate, but you wouldnt be far off with packing peanuts. water will also show any unsealed parts in the enclosure.

    if by the baffle, you mean the mdf rings, a coat or two of resin will seal it right up.
