In the past, I've just clamped boxes together with clamps, or screwed in some screws to act as clamps. If your edges are square and everything matches up, it's fine. Those boxes seen just over 1000 watts RMS and held up fine.

All I used was carpenters glue.

Some beg to differ, and state that you absolutely need screws in your box. Well, I do recommend that you do use them, but in my past experiences, things seem to work out with without them.

i've never used it but that stuff if ****in expensive. a guy used like 1 screw per side then like 25 nails put in i laughed but it worked, box leaked air like crazy b/c his cuts weren't straight though.
