I see some small 45s in the corners and the double baffle, but where is the bracing? That box will flex like crazy.

Yea I thought about a center piece. Just didn't know if I should. But I still have to do fiber glass on the 45s in the corners. If I put a center peice should I fiber glass that to.

clean build and holy hell those ports are big lol. dont see why adding some glass to the center support would hurt.... just would be added strength.
