MDF is pretty light... only thing I can think of is going with thinner wood but I wouldnt recommend it.

you can build them out of fiber glass, is lighter and if built right stronger then mdf.

he did, humm, you can use 1/2" mdf and brace it well, and it should give you the strength you need, but it will only be slightly lighter.
what size are the L7s?
