ima be building a small wall in my integra, and im gonna need alot of bracing so i dont get any flex, ill prolly use a couple sheets of birch, box will be around 50 deep, 15 high and 30 wide in the trunk area, and 42 wide and around 30 high in the front of the wall, now as far as bracing goes im not sure how to brace it best, thought bout either using dowels or something any thoughts would be great on what you guys use to brace with.

If you do 2-3 layers of birch (I would do 3 if you could, then you can countersink the outer layer around the subs if you like that look) with a 'devider' of sorts between each sub that's about 6-8 inches wide (they'd be more like 8" deep because they'd be going towards the back of your enclosure ) and the height of the enclosure with each devider glued and screwed to the inside of the face of the wall and the top+bottom of the enclosure as well, it should be pretty darn solid. Then maybe a couple layers of fiberglass on the inside too.
