Alright guys, I'm in the process of getting my box plans made by JMAC. The question I have is will (1) 4'x8' sheet of MDF be enough to construct a 1.25 cuft ported box for my civic.

I somehow went through an entire 4x8' pece of wood on my box. I only wasted about 2 15x15 pieces which I cut too small. I actually am short and have to buy two 16x14" pieces off my friend. lol.

Home Depot here sells for $30 (3/4" 4x8 sheet). I bought one just a month ago. I dunno why its so expensive there.

Must remember the exchange rate my friend. $20= ~$24.50 + tax = ~$29. I am sure not complaining if that guy in Edmonton is paying $48
