I see a lot of people doing double layers of mdf on the sub side of the box. I didn't do that for the box I have now, but am thinking about it for the box I'm about to start.
But with the two peices of wood touching, how would I keep them from slapping. Just a lot of screws and glue, or is there something else that needs to be done?

should be fine. i never use screws, just plenty of wood glue, and never had an issue.

Slapping??? How the hell did you deduce that? It's two pieces of wood glued/screwed together, it's not going to "slap" champ.

Thanks for the quick feedback. What glue would you recomend? I've always used elmers wood glue, but my dad has a ton of liquid nails he has no use for.

Up until about a month ago I would never have asked, but one of my friends failed on a box. When we tore it down, we found that the front two pieces were going at it with each other.

if your that worried buy a cheap blanket and put it in between the pieces then screw them together.

NO LIQUID NAIL PERIOD!

Elmers isn't that bad, Titebond II is the best that i've found

I use glue sticks on all my boxes and I've never had wood slap, I highly recommend it.
