    Quick simple question...

    I'm about to make a 3 cubic feet sealed box. I need to know how much carpet do I need to carpet it. I was thinking i needed 2 yards but I'm not sure. Did I guess correctly?



    My Setup...
    {Head Unit}
    Eclipse 7200 MKII
    {Sound Stage}
    Seas Excel W18NX & Seas Prestige 27TBFC/G
    10" IDMax
    {Amplification}
    US Amps Merlin I & 43

    depends on the dimensions of the enclosure , and the width of the carpet. I always buy a yard more than I need. Hell of a lot easier to cut extra off than to add extra on

    Re: Quick simple question...

    Find the area of each face and add them together. Assuming it's a cube, 9x9 = 81 x 6 = 468" / 12 = 40.5' / 3 = 13.5 Yards Area.

    You want carpet that'll cover 3 sides, so 9 x 3 = 9 yards wide by 12 yards long would be ideal. Get more, of course. I would get a 10-11 Y-wide by 13-14Y long. I'd rather have too much than too little.


    P.S. I've always wanted a Suzuki Motorcycle. ;.;
