Default Stock sub enclosure cubic feet - Science Project!

I geeked out terribly today since I could not find the answer to my question anywhere. I got out the measuring cup and found the stock enclosure (at least 08-12) to hold EXACTLY 9 liters of water.

9 Liters of water comes out to be .317832 cu ft or we could say 1/3 of a cu ft.

So there you have it, my useful useless contribution for the day

Todd

What about the space around the outer edge there? Looks like it is higher than your water level.

Unless you used a spacer you could not take advantage of that space. The sub mounts to the surface where the water is filled to.

I think I see what you are talking about the box was at a slight angle and you may have been able to add 1 cup of water if that, pic looks worse than it was, it was VERY close to full.

he is talking about the area above the speaker mounting surface
the surface the measuring cup is sitting

that looks like more than a cup ?

you would have to flip the enclosure and get creative to measure the volume or is that just optical ??

I see now. I bet that would add another liter or so .... Maybe .4 cu ft ..... No way to measure that.

you flip it / fill it with water using a hose
then tip it without spilling and measure what you pour out vs what you pour in

easy peasy

or just call it .4
