If you can do joints there alot stronger than just a simple screw.
They make a " sealed" box

MDF is preferable. Less flex. Cheaper. Easier on the saw blades.

Just brace your box quite a bit.

no i spend $862 on subs and my woodworking teacher says its the right wood to make a box and now i'm going to tell him to return the wood and get the right wood, MDF, not no **** wood that ACE told him was the best wood for speaker boxes
