Re: Curved Cabinet Volume Calculation ??

Yes the volume is about 3.87 cu ft.
Then you need to subtract the driver volume and any bracing.

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

Re: Curved Cabinet Volume Calculation ??

(width_front + width_rear)/2 multiplied by depth and height

17.5 + 13 = 30.5 /2 = 15.25

15.25 x 18.5 x 18.5 = 5219.3

5219.3 cu. inches = 3 cu.ft. internal volume.

Math isn't my strong point, am I doing this wrong?

Re: Curved Cabinet Volume Calculation ??

No Mike, your math is correct. It is I who is dazed and confused.
I was using external measurements instead of real world internal measurements.
My apologies. Too many things on my mind at the moment.

As usual you see the big picture.

Cheers,
Bill.

P.S you still need to subtract the driver and bracing volumes from that as well don't you?

Yes, subtracting both gives the net internal volume. Anyways, glad we got it figured out.

Yes, also wall thickness. I didn't read the measurements properly.

Cheers,
