Awesome looking box man..But you need to put some more screws on that side w/out very many..That will rattle because it will be weaker than the rest. Other than that, nice job dude!

first off screws dont hold the box together, if you glue correctly thats what holds, screws just clamp while it drys.....secondly....why the hell did you use particle board? not smart, espcially with an l7.......:nono:

you did a good job on that box. the wood does look like particle board and not mdf. mdf is about the same as prticle board, only the particles are smaller, making the wood denser.
bracing?? is there any on that baffle? i dont see any screws through it. Thats a fairly large box I would have gone 1" MDF or put some extra bracing on that baffle. You do not want the box to flex, so do all you can to prevent it. use thicker wood or brace the crap outta it.

if possible i would mount a 2x2 mid way on that baffle (midway between the sub and edge of the box)

yeah --it just looks like particle board....are you sure thats mdf and not straight up particle board? you did a nice job anyways, mabey the pic just makes it look different but i have never seen mdf that looks like that.

it dont matter if its particle board or mdf does it??, b/c ifound this place that sells particle board for 5$ for a 4x8 sheet

yeah it does matter...particle board is larger paricles and it is not baked the same way the dust/resin mixture is to make mdf.....particle board is ok for low power subs in small encolsures, beoynd that it flexes like hell and can the possibility to actully explode/implode (i have seen it happen). I am not going to garontee you have problems But i would certainly advise you not to use that box if it is particle board (I still cant tell, the pictures are playing with my mind :) )

i suggested bracing for a reason. if its not MDF you should consider putting some in. wont take much to do, just cut a 2x4 to legnth and rip it down the center. use one piece on the top and one on the bottom both place about center of the wood. that should help that wood withstand the pressure better
