Hey peeps well ive got someone who will make me my sub box but i have to supply the supply's so i was wondering. I can get a huge sheet of mdf for only 5 bucks ( i got mad connections at the local hardware store) but the only problem is its 1 inch thick not 3/4 thick is this going to be a problem?? i didnt think it would be and 5 bucks its a mean price so if itll work id REALLY like to know as that sheet of mdf wont be there forever but they are going to hold it for a day or 2 for me so id love any feed back THANKS:crazy:

Go for it.

Just ensure the measurements allow for 1" material to be used and not 3/4".

hells yeah, i'd use a 1 inch sheet if i could.

You can never go too thick....in regards to common sense @ reason

Go for it. I would much rather have a box built out of something as thick as 1 inch.

I build my enlosures with three inches of solid concrete.....

But seriously within reason you can go as thick as you please....just means less chance of flexing :)

1" MDF is the shits....

**** 1" MDF. the only disadvantage of that is, the enclosure will be HEAVY.

the advantage i see is, NO FLEXING FTW!!!!!!!!!
