Well im sure the people building boxes with 1 inch didnt have to spend 1600, So there has to be somewhere.

And i might just have to double it up.

dont know of many people using 1" to be honest with ya. most use 3/4" and you wont flex 3/4" with your sub unless you making a huge box with no bracing.

using an ED or using an MT? I wanna find some of the 7 layer or whatever it is for my trunk build for my MT. homedepot carry it Robin? and what do they call it there if they do? also you think im gonna need double baffle on top or just good bracing?

I've got my strokers mounted on single 3/4" baffles, and if they flex and fall apart, it'll atleast give me something to laugh about.

Im using double baffle 3/4" on my next project. Should be plenty enough for your application too.

double the top up. its already the weakest panel, and you are throwing 60 pounbds on it...its easier than the proper bracing, and probably cheaper.

im using 13 ply, my HD didnt carry the 7 ply stuff, but its all birch

I doubled up on some 1/2" MDF before. The box is uber heavy but solid as anything I have ever built.

ive done that as well. it is too heavy, its best to just use birch in that case....imo

well i built it out of 3/4 particle board, but the better kind.. i didn't want to spend $30 on a sheet of mdf right away, so i built a cheaper box to see how things fit and it sounded... yea it flexed and fell apart, but im gonna change my set up, i dont want type r's anymore
