Think bell. That's what it will ring like. You would have to double wall it and fill the void between the walls with a deadener or expanding foam or some such. It will be heavier than just about anything but cement. Cement would make a better enclosure.

You can always just cover a wooden box with some diamond plate though. Give the idea that it's metal, yet don't have all the problems to deal with.

Al diamond plate does make for some nice trim though...

take some of that metal and make "straps" to go around the box... kinda like what go around the top and bottom or a fishtank, and it would help with box flex ;)

Ive seen a box somewhere that was covered with diamond plate. Looked ok but I dont remeber where I saw the pic. Might have been on here.
