Making a ported box for 2 type R's, do i need to double up on the wood on the front of the box for support? Using 3/4 MDF. Can someone do a quick final box check for me also?

External measurements: 33 longm, 15.84 wide, bot depth 17 in, top 13

Displacements: 2 3x3x3 boxes
Wall of 3/4 MDF seperating the chambers

Acoording to my math should be about 1.7 cu ft per chamber. Thanks

what are the port dimensions? and no need to double up.

x2 on doubling up...not necessary. You do have a decently long stretch though, may want to consider just a small strip to brace. Chances are you won't have any issues, but it won't hurt, nor will it take long to do on the front and back of the box :)
