I have some 5/8 thick MDF and I need to build an enclosure for my Type-R. Should I get some 3/4 or will I lose anything with the 5/8?

unless u double up the 5/8 id juts go buy 3/4 its like $20 a sheet and you'll save less time doubling the box.

It's pretty close to that, he clearly approximated it.

To the OP, it depends on the dimensions of the box. If it's a small box, 5/8" should do the trick.

i think as long as your box isn't rediculously huge 5/8" should work for you. just add some bracing to make sure nothing flexes though

So if I built a 1.2 cutft ported enclosure for a type r 10 to fit in the middle compartment hole in the back of a zo6 would I be fine using 1/2"? The box would fit pretty much snug so I doubt it would flex and its a sq based install so max output isnt the goal.

The sub is a 10" and the box will be about .6 cu/ft.

Will be running about 400 RMS to it, may get some 1/4 sheets of 3/4...should do the trick. Should be no larger than 10x10x10.

Nah, 5/8" is sufficient for that box.
