hi im a newbie at building boxes so i have a few questions. 1. when you screw together the pieces of your box sides, top , bottom etc. how far away should each screw be from each other and what are the typical kind and lenth of screw needed? i will be using 3/4 MDF for 10" subs. , i assume its the best choice for a sealed box. not sure tough. if im wrong please correct me! also when you screw togther the pieces to you also need to apply any type of glue in between the pieces, THEN screw it together? and i seen inside boxes, people use corking or some type of glue. what is a good brand to go with and is this applied to the inside or also in between the pieces and then screwing it down? thanks a lot! sorry 'bout all the questions. its m first box. thanks
