    Same way you figure out the tuning with any other box. Figure up the Net airspace (after your sub/port displacement) and then find an appropriate vent length, with the propper ammount of port area.

    Yea, like davidfre21 said. Take packing peanuts and fill the box, then transfer them into cardboard boxes and measure how many you have. (WxDxH) and get the cubic feet

    If your trying to figure it out before building it then just look at what the box would be sqared off and minus the parts your not using on it. if your building then measuring packign peanuts are a good way to get area.
