i would put some between the subs on the left and right side and maybe some little triangle braces in the corners and below the subs

He wont need them. The port walls themselves will act as proper bracing. All I would worry about would be some triangle braces in the corners and thats it.

yep place them in the corners, the center port can support alot of weight

it's a 90 degree triangle, place it in the corner of the box and screw it in from the outside. All this does is adds support to the sides bottems and tops from flexing and pulling apart.

From about 5 boxes ago. Look in the top right corner, that's a triangle brace. It wasn't necessary on this enclosure, so I just used apiece of scrap and didn't make it the height of the box. You should always want to make it as tall as the inside though, that way you can couple the corner to the top and bottom.

Sketchup doesn't make the designs better, and people won't be "oohing and aahing" when the Fr is in the tank.

to be honest we can't tell you for sure... but what i can tell you is that tuning it to 37hz is higher than average for a daily setup..
