    Box Shape

    Does a box have to be square? Can I have the box mold to my floor because theres about an 8inch drop, and before the drop its not large enough to set a box on only about 12" so I want to use about 12" of the floor as well.

    Ask yourself this.... Does air have to be in a square enclosure? Does liquid?

    Matter of these forms can fill any amount of space, regardless of the shape..

    Trying to put words in my mouth I'm speaking in terms of less distractions for air flow (assuming ported) and overall interior design.

    Re: Box Shape

    I think we can all agree though that a box that is 200 feet long, but only acheives 5 cubic feet of volume vs a square box that is 5 cubic feet that the square box is going to sound better....

    (or is this just an assumption I came up with and have told myself to believe?)
