    Sub enclosure volume Tip!!!

    heres a little tip for finding the volume of an odd shaped enclosure or any one for that matter:


    get some packing peanuts and dump them in the enclosure until its full

    dump those peanuts into an empty box

    measure your cubic feet

    this is a good indication to see if you are close to what you thought you had sometimes you'd be real surprised!

    That's a good tip. Another way is:
    1. Fill it with water.
    2. Begin adding Nestea Instant Ice Tea mix. Be sure to keep track of how much you add!
    3. Each time you add some, stir it together and taste.
    4. Continue until it tastes correct.
    Once this happens, compare your numbers (of how much tea you added) against the flavor chart on the back of the Nestea container to figure out how much water is needed for that amount of mix. You will now have the volume of your enclosure.
    5. Drink the tea.

    Only if you put the subwoofer in and play some bass, so that the woofer moving back and forth will stir it properly.

    The Nestea and coco methods? Yeah, I know. People've been using them for years.
