## Re: A noob question for the masses!

Do you want that to be your net volume?

Anyways, Length X Height X Depth (inches)/1728 = cubic foot volume. What are your dimension restrictions?

## Re: A noob question for the masses!

Lets say just enough space on one side to fit the sub, so 16.5 x 16.5 is what we will shoot for for the first two dimensions. So, multiply 2.3 (assuming the displacement is .2 for the driver) by 1728, then divide that by 15(subtracted 1.5" for wall thickness), then divide it by 15 again, and that answer will be the final internal dimension. Then, you add 1.5 to each dimension because of wall thickness. You end up with 16.5 x 16.5 x 19.164. Thats not optimal dimensions, just an example.

Man, I hope that makes sense to you.

FYI sealed doesnt have do be as precise as ported. you can be .3 off and i bet you wouldnt notice an audible difference.

## Re: A noob question for the masses!

just dont think too hard is what im saying. find the space where you want it to be whip up the length, width, height thatll fit in good. if its 2.0 your good. if its 2.5 your good. you're making a big deal out of nothing really. ported on the other hand though...

I'm just trying to get the general idea to him. Not trying to make a big deal out of it.
