Well, the center/top of my box design requires the MDF to be side by side. Just curious on what methods you guys use to attach them. My guess is just glue the pieces together and screw em together in various spots?

EDIT: side by side as in flat together ||

Actually- it sounds like hes attatching them side to side to me.

If you are talking face ot face- like Double baffle- just glue and screw.

If side to side- biscuits or dowels glued into both pieces.

Side by side, or on top each other?

A double baffle wouldn't be described as 2 boards "side by side"

I'm confused.

As replied above, glue and clamps. If the board will be seen (and not carpeted), i would recommend not using screws. They look like hell on an non-carpeted enclosure. Just lay a lot of glue, lay the boards square to each other, and clamp the hell out of it. Then, just clean up then ends with some sandpaper.

why not just get 1" mdf?

If the two subs are getting the same signal, why double it up in the first place. The pressure oneither side of that mid wall will be equal. Next question is why your design has the actual speaker baffle made out of two pieces? A single piece that runs all the way across the top of the box will make the finished product much stronger and flex resistant.
