There's another ratio hidden in all this, the square root of phi, 1.27. Gets you there, just more gradually.

Or the smallest dimension x 1.618 and then the smallest dimension x 2.618

Which is the same as smallest x phi = middle. Middle x phi = longest.

ie 1.618 ^2 = 2.618. Also 1/1.618 = 0.618

Very "fun" ratio to play with. Probably the easiest method to remember though for the mathematically uninclined is the one I stated.

If he has a minimum dimension of 13.335 then wouldn't you?

1. 13.335 / .618 = 21.578
2. 21.578 * 1.618 = 34.913

21.578 (X3) = 10.047

See post #4. We are starting to go in circles

I remember that the Golden ratio was in a book ...
It was about ORIGAMI and it was the right dimensioned rectangle
to start to fold ....

One thing that can ruin it though, is any type of bracing or solid object within that "golden ratio" space. And if the box is small enough and the magnet is large enough, that can ruin the effect too..

many golden ratios are possible in a speaker box

1. each individual surface
2. each individual surface in relation to other surfaces
3. cubic relations, volume, or volumes
4. mounting of each driver in relation to surface
5. relations between several drivers
6. bracing

I guess the list could be longer
