Question from darell:

I am trying to build a speaker box, and i am trying to find out the measurements of a 1.5 cubic feet box.

Hi Darell,

To have a volume of 1.5 cu ft the dimensions have to satisfy

length times width times height = 1.5

If the shape is a cube then length = width = height = 1.15 ft but it could also be 1 ft by 1 ft by 1.5 feet or any other dimensions as long as

length times width times height = 1.5
