In ten words of less:
You can't fit a Wicked one in a nutshell 60



I use the 2 inches taller because that was Steves advice to me on the 12" and its simplier. Oh ya It does change the horn length and Big Air had good results that way was also a reason ( sorry thats more than ten words)

if i just make it 2 inches taller it 'doesnt' change horn lengths. im sure thats what you meant. im makeing it 36x36 and 2 inches taller, thanks for the advice everyone.  ;)

WO=36x36x13.5 or 10.125 square feet.
Every dimension 1.2 bigger would be 43.2x43.2x16.2 or 17.496 square feet.
Just making it 2" taller would be 36x36x15.5 or 11.625 square feet.
If you want exactly it 20% bigger it would be
36x36x16.2 or 12.15 square feet.
10.125 + 20% = 12.15
In my opinion, that would be the best way to go because the horn lengths would stay exactly the same and your cone size to horn size ratio would be accurate.
Try the math yourself and you'll see what I mean. [/quote]

im bad @ math  >:(

Good call 60.  I bet you'll like it.  Just make sure you take lots of pics.

As far as the size thing.....  Picture what you would do if you doubled the size of the box.  Take one box and place it on top of another box.  That would be enough to double it.  If you double every dimension it would require 8 boxes rather than just two.  Does that make sense now?
