1) Punctuation and grammar are your friend.
2) TiteBond 2 or 3 is very good.
3) Drywall screws (be sure to pre-drill)
4) Bracing - some 1" dowel front to back
5) Seal it all up inside with clear, 100% silicone. Be sure to let it dry/ventilate for 24-48 hours before installing the driver into the enclosure.

Everything mentioned above and:

countersink your screws
use at least 1 5/8" screws if your building with 3/4' MDF

What if u use black silcone? What if i use wood glue?

Just seal it up properly with wood glue or some other good type of sealant.. the color really doesnt matter :)
