    Having the sub straddle the gap like that is going to be a major, major weak spot.

    You really want the baffle to be structurally solid.

    How about some braces as close as possible to the opening?

    You should of had the baffle sit on top of the sides, instead of flush.

    Take a look at your second picture from the bottom. What I'd do is lay a piece of MDF flat on that bottom piece, and see if the basket on the sub will clear that hole with that piece right there. If it does, screw down that piece to the floor, then screw the woofer into the baffle with longer screws- 2" drywalls should suffice, that way it catches into that extra piece and provides more support. I wouldn't leave it the way it is- other then that, construction looks good.

    How does it sound at 32hz? Thinking about tuning my next box to that.

    And I mounted them like this-




    And then I jizzed alover the inside of the box because it's just so ****-

    as long as you used plenty of glue, and put some screws close to where that sub sits, i guess that box will be fine.
