Hello Shack;
Is 1 1/2" MDF needed for the cabinet if I use 2" X 2" wood for bracing in a grid of 1' on all the panels and 3" thick facia for the woofers? Is this overkill??

Also what about panel bracing on the outside of the box. The box will be in an adjcent room out of view.

Hey THX;
Basically it is a copy of Rodney's sub @ 8' X 3' X 4' (70 cu.ft internal) tuned to 11.9 Hz.

Hey Mike P;
The bracing will be "window pane" type running both ways on each panel to ensure the box doesn't vibrate.
