I just had a box built buy CN sounds(chris norris' shop) and he put supports in it for my 2 MT's, but the supports are starting to come loose from the wood flexing. how can i prevent it from getting worse? someone told me i had to fiberglass the whole inside of the box but i wondered if that was necessary

they used pieces of 3/4"mdf board all the way along the inside but cut ports out for the air to flow through. there are two supposts all together, one on each side of the actual port. they liquid nailed and put brad nails in all the way along the supports also. he was the one that recommended fiberglassing the whole inside.

Before you go re-doing it and/or fiberglassing the inside, wouldn't you wanna call or take it by CN Sounds to see if they'd take care of it for you?

x2 i used a little bit of liquid nails in my last box and thats the only part im having problems with the braces coming loose. I dug it out of there and used Titebond Ultimate and no more issues!

i never had a problem with liquid nails with about 1kw though, its the 4kw+ it doesnt like lol
