View Full Version : question on box for xxx's

04-14-2003, 03:49 AM
ok i am going to be building a box thats 10 cbft divided in half so 2 diff ported chambers of 5 cbft each one would have a 18" xxx in it. would 3/4 mdf be thick enough to build the box?

Yes to a point 3/4" would work if u brace it well, and put two layers on the front to support the xxx better

Iould 1" be better to use?for bracing would rebar be a good thing to use? Scince it is small ad strong? I have no idea how much they weigh.
