Hey all! As I posted before, I'm building a coffee table sub. To do that, I'm modifying the Adire design and trying to come up with dimensions that add up to 142l.

To that end, I wrote an Excel spreadsheet that takes everything into account. Internal bracing, holes in the bracing, etc etc. This allows you to just play with the numbers until you get a volume you like. It's not very complicated, but it's saving me a TON of time, and I thought I'd share with everyone here.

I can't post it on my server, but I'd be happy to email anyone a copy. Shoot me an email at [email protected] if you're interested.

Thanks Joe, I'm sure it'll save others some valuable time also. BTW, I've always used 3.1417 for Pi. Have I been wrong all these years?

Maybe just a little From a math text:

"The value of pi correct to seven decimal places is: 3.1415926."

if you type =pi() into excel it will give you the value out to some decimel place.... just a handy dandy tip from a spreadsheet nerd!

Sweet, did not know that. I'm far from an Excel expert...If there's interest in it, I'll build a Windows program to do this - that's my real strength.
