I need something that's as strong as 3/4" mdf but thinner. I really need <1/4" that can hold ~30lbs.

1/4" that can hold 30 lbs? what would this be used for? if the piece is small enough 30lbs is plausible.. big and it will start to bow unless its got support..

a sheet of aluminum is about all i can think of thats light weight, and can support 30lbs or so

I guess I can double baffle and cut into my cubic feet. I just want to flush mount the sub, kind of hard to explain what I want to do above the sub. I need it as low as it can go so i can mount a grille cover above it to protect the sub. It has a 1.5" excersion from what splaudio is saying. I am going to double baffle above it to but it will be a 12" grille cover so the top mdf will be 1.5" a over the sub.

Could just soak resin into the MDF?

The floor panels in the aircraft I work on are made of some honeycomb laminate stuff, a 3x4ft panel weighs a few pounds or so..its only about 3/8" thick..
