this is the box im building for two 10" type s' and and av12 amp
the amp will be recessed into the box and the subs will be countersunk. Its going intio a chev 1500 regular cab. it will be about 2.6@35 hz
yes its made from 1/2 mdf to save some space...but since its glassed it should be more than fine ;)

How do you save space over 3/4" when you're adding at least an 1/8" or more of glass inside the box and taking up volume?

Couldn't you have just used 3/4" and shrunk the box 1/8" all around?

could have yes...but he wants it ported and i wanted the most volume possible. its not a huge saving in volume but the box is going to be very strong aswell.

its 99.1% done...i just need to build a trim panel for the amp rack. It will be made from 1/4" hardboard and covered in black vinyl leather. i think it should contrast nicely. Its only going to cover the edge of the amp and the wires. here are the pics:
