Whats the best possible wood? Also how thin can I use to get the most space out of by trunk.

I was thinking birch,oak, or maple.

whats the plan?

3/4 MDF and Birch Ply are the norm.

you can use thin wood if you want, but then you would have to brace it to prevent flexing. So in the end it's best to just go with 3/4"

You will still need to brace 3/4" wood depending on the size...

You can use a thinner wood, and then fiberglass it from the inside for strength without the weight. Definitely use bracing. You may still want to use a 3/4 piece for the actual sub mounting location.

Fiberglass is best for strength in curves, not flat surfaces.

That is what the bracing is for. Besides, 1/4 inch thick fiberglass is harder and stronger than 3/4 inch wood. If you use 3/8 in wood with 3/16 thick fiberglass on top, it will be plenty strong for a normal box. I wouldn't load 6 15's in it though.
