2x4's work pretty well, the idea is to build sturcture on sides that might flex, and it is pretty hard to flex a 2x4

If you make it out of 3/4" MDF, and caulk and nail it well, you won't need too much bracing. I say just put L brackets in the corners, it should be fine.

2x2's work good but you gotta take in to count how much air space they will take up and add that to the total size of the box
other wise you will end up with not enough air space
good luck.
