5/8 and 3/4 isn't that big of a price difference, for someone who gets it by the 60 piece skid, it's a difference of $6 a sheet and $7 a sheet for a 4 x 16

that being said, i still don't now why they'd use 1/8" smaller than 99% of their competitors.

and i would imagine the reason it's so cheap is it's just a plain old sealed box. It's probably $15 worth of materials, and is probably just standard nailed and glued joints.

It's probably fine, i'd reglue all the joints, and wouldn't put anything too heavy in it.

because when you have 4 12's moving a ton of air, you are having pushing and pulling of air when the bass hits. in the case that you do not have the proper strength of wood and/or bracing, your wood is going to flex. this in turn causes cancellation, which then in turn makes your system not as loud.

Is 5/8" MDF really that much of a difference than 3/4? Would it hold up, or just be really weak? I like the price, and shipping is 39 if you wanted to know. Its just i cant make boxes and cant seem to find someone close to make one.
