Default Vent volume


Just wondering, when building cabinet do I include vent volume or I have to make it bigger like for internal brace ?

Yes the vent volume is 'lost' space so must be added.

It is very wise of you to plan extra space for your vent and bracing. I would just point out that even if your volume is 10% less than what you planned, it won't show up in the bass response very much.

So by all means plan ahead and allow for whatever space you think you need, but in case you are a little bit off, you still have plenty of clearance.
