Re: How import is the golden ratio for box building?
The golden rule matters for woofers. Not sub woofers. The purpose behind the golden rule is to minimize standing waves within the enclosure that will color the sound. The only freqs where you have to worry about this are in the midrange and above. As long as you are running a crossover on the sub, it isn't even a consideration.
