    Re: 1/2 inch

    What size box, how many subs, what subs?

    If you use enough bracing, and do it properly, you shouldnt have a problem.

    Why cant you use 3/4"?

    Re: 1/2 inch

    layered sheets... sounds like particle board huh?

    if so, then no.

    bracing is just glueing pillars (so to say) of mdf in your box to keep the box from fleixing. you have to take into account the dispacement too theres other kindsa bracing also.

    Particle Board = No No for boxes

    Go out and get a 4' x 8' sheet of 3/4" MDF for like $10.

    Re: 1/2 inch

    yea we tried to be cheap about it and used plywood for a box for a fbx 15 and within 5 minutes of playin the box fell apart, spend some money and get mdf you'll be happier with the look in the end

    and around here a 4 x8 sheet os 3/4 is like 25 bucks
