I would do one on each side of the sub from top to the bottom and 2 from the front to the back. Get the largest wooden dowel you can find. I ended up using 2x2 from lowes to do all of my bracing.

I would do 4 vertical dowels. Imagine a square around the sub, place a dowel in each corner of the imaginary square.

I'm placing the woofer on the front of my box and I'm making a double baffle for it. I'm also using (2) dowels for bracing the middle of the box...

I would double the face also.

I have always used all thread to brace a box. It is pretty simple, cheap, and IMO, more effective than wooden dowels because you can torque it down :D

Ugly as hell though.

could you not make up a baffle ring so the sub would be sitting on say 36mm
