    Hey I'm trying to calculate how much 1.5cf is.


    Anyone have any ideas?

    This is to calculate a sub woofer box, I need one thats 1.5cf and all the specs they give are length, width and height in inches. So I need to convert 1.5cf into inches so I can compare the size difference when I calculate the box in cubic inches (LxWxH).

    Thanks.

    one foot is 12 inches i believe? then one cubic feet = 12^3 cube inches

    1.5 * 12^3 whatever that is

    man the empirical system is really weird. in metric it would be so simple

    would it be 18^3 ? Since 1.5 feet = 18 inches?

    so 5832 cu/inchs ?

    Cheers,

    no, that would be 1.5 ft cubed, not 1.5 cubed ft.
