Is this for an entire box? Or just certain pieces? Or some else entirely?

Just go to a local lumberyard and ask, most likely they car order it for you.

have you tried the home depot on oakton, just east of mccormick rd? i would call first, i'm not positive that they have it. or that hardware store on oakton and skokie blvd? i thought their lumber section was kind of big. i don't use 1" mdf so i don't know for sure who has it. mlstrass knows a good lumber yard, but i think it's pretty far north... in the gurnee area

i live in Skokie. I have not found 1 inch mdf in the area, and i have been to all chain stores. your going to want a double baffle anyways so 3/4 mdf should be used. 1 inch is a waste of money.

look for plywood distributors in your area, they will have it probably going to be 1.25 inch though, and very heavy

How did calling some place a Jewish community become racist? If the majority of residents are Jewish then who cares? Good Lord, you people throw that racist word around waaaay too easily.

Anyway...do you have Georgia Pacific distributer in your area? They might have it. Beyond that look for dedicated lumber yards. Lowes and Home Depot have no reason to carry it.

Call some local lumber yards as they should be able to order it for you. If you want to save weight you can order Trupan Ultralite from Touhy lumber in Zion for $48 a sheet and it should knock off around 40+ pounds on a box that size...

how many sheets do you think i would need of the $48 stuff its gonna be a 8 cube box im not sure if i would wanna double baffle ill just put 2 or 3 thread rods for bracing in th inside?

mlstrass

2 sheets would work and do window bracing like I posted in the other thread and YES double baffle it also...

you're going to need a forklift to get that into the trunk :P i'd say that's going to be over 200 lbs with the subs in there

2500 wrms is not enough power for 2 btls. And if it is only for 1 Btl then you do not need 8 cubes

Thats on the light side... ;)

When I had my 2 18" MT's installed in my silverado. It was a 12 cube box, with all outter walls doubled. Weighed in around 280-300. :laugh:
