I hopes this helps clear up some of the confusion.
After thinking about it for a bit, I think I get it.
My confusion is on where you placed your pleats. It originally sounded like you used only 4 pleats.
If I'm understanding correctly, you used 2 pleats in each corner (placed at a right angle) for a total of 8 pleats. Is that correct or am I still confused?

Heh, yes, good point. The baffle height is added to both the width and length, and I didn't mention that in my original post.
Thanks both of you, for helping me puzzle through this.
