sub box... but i want as much lightweight stuff as possible... i have a 1" plexi panel goin in and thats a lot of weight!!! but i like the characteristics of the lighterweight stuff... and u can bend it!

i dont think you want easily bendable wood... birch ply is a good deal lighter than MDF, but it is also twice as expensive.

its not easily bendible... u need to heat it up in order for it to bend... but its stronger and more dense than mdf...
