What is better sounding, a MDF box or Fiberglass. i dont know anything about the sound of a fiberglass box, but i do know how to build and how good MDF boxs can sound.

there's no in difference in sound if you build them right.

mdf is easier to work with, whereas fiberglass can be a real pain. it's also a lot cheaper and less time consuming. i usually make the entire box out of mdf then add 'glass to give it that custom look.

Don't forget the weight factor too. A properly built and braced glass box can weigh a fraction of the same size properly built and braced MDF box. :)
