    Now your talking 4.29 net. You got roughly 2 cuft per outer minues displacement. You also have roughly 19" per side length wise. So slap that there port in there length wise and you'll be straight

    If those are inner dimensions how are you going to lose 2" ? maybe 1" if you have seperate chambers. and the 12" is the outer diameter. The cutout is at least 1/2" smaller. If your interior dimension is 13" tall the front panel will actually be 14 1/2" With 3/4 " 15" with 1".
