Paradigm sub2 / ML Descent style enclosures

I have an idea but wanted to bounce it off the sub experts here regarding calculating the volume for a six sided enclosure like the new Paradigm SUB1 and 2 and the Martin Logan Descent.

I am thinking I can first calculate the volume of a Triangular enclosure using the great enclosure calculator located on this site: http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...me-calculator/

Then calculate the volume lost by the 3 sides that would need to be cut out to make the 6 sided enclosure. Basically I am looking to make a polygon but all not all 6 sides may be equal, just 3 and 3 but I haven't got that far yet.

If your wondering what the Paradigm Sub2 is here is some info:

I am not going to be making my own SUB2 but like the force canceling configuration, just check out this demo Paradigm conducted on you tube:

Any ideas on what would be the best method to calculate the volume of such and enclosure?

Yes, you're on the right track. Any geometric shape can be used as a subwoofer enclosure and to estimate the internal volume before you build it just break it up into its basic triangles and rectangles, calculate those, and then add those volumes together.

I figure it will be a little harder to calculate but in a sealed enclosure, just as long as I am close, then I will be OK.
