Built properly you should hear no difference between a mdf and a fiberglass enclosure. Fiberglass conforms to curves where as mdf doesn't. As for the dynamat that's a highly debated subject. Most of the time when it's done they are trying to stop the enclosure from resonating. :)

u could build the basic box out of mdf and then fiberglass the curves and stuff for the subs right?

Yep, fiberglass is strongest when curved. :)
