I have never built a fiberglass enclosure and plan to try one. so instead of going out and buyign to much or to little i was going to ask the folks who might have done this before on how much and mat a resin i might need? the box will probably be around 7 cubic feet

jeezus... that's a lot of fibreglass my friend...
you might want to think about making an MDF enclosure with teh front or top or whatever is exposed as fibreglass... whole hell of a lot easier.... and cheaper...

Don't just go out and make a huge *** box your first time....practice it on a much smaller scale before you make the final product. And as Wonderbread said, you should use MDF for all the flat parts, and use fiberglass for the curved parts; that's where fiberglass is the strongest.
