For internal bracing, would using dowl rods work ? Say, 1 inch diameter rods, put a few in and screw them into the top and bottom ? Also, what is the easier way to support the sub ? Would 4 dowl rods, making a square for the magnet to sit in, work ?

i'm sure the dowel rods would work for support for the box but why would u want to use dowels rods to support the sub...jus put the screws in and that'll hold it

i used 2x4's as beams and it sturdy my box up pretty **** good. also if you use 2x4's you got to subtract the amount of volume they will take up inside your box. what i also did was take some left over 3/4" mdf and made triangles and stuck them in the corners.

2x4's, dowels, 1/2" allthread (hehe :D) they will all work...

Works great.

try using the circular wood that you find in closets that hold the hangers. they're pretty strong for their size. you can find them in most hardware stores.
