Hey thanks, I wanted to know this because I was doing the math last night, and for a 3ft^3 box, it said I would only need about 20Sq and 17Sq for another 3Ft^3 design. So I should be goot with 1-2 sheets for these?

This image has a shot of the enclosure and all the panels I used. The panels used are colored red and the large rectangle is a full sheet of MDF. The enclosure was 2.5 cubic feet with doubled rear panels.

I am doing a build right now for bass race, it is using right at 7 full sheet, I may even crack into an 8th sheet by the time its done, all single layer 3/4" MDF, 4 x 8 ft sheets, is turning out to be a big build
