    fiberglass vs box

    is there really a difference in sound or anything? i know fiberglass can go nearly anywhere and use space that you would never use, creating more free space. however. is there a difference in the quality of the enclosure? or anythig?

    If you build them right, there shouldn't be a difference between them...

    How thick does the glass need to be? Surely not 3/4"?

    Re: fiberglass vs box

    Glass should be around 1/4 inch or until you can stand on it which if done properly is around the same. Iasked a similar question a few months ago when I started my project .. I have yet to get enough time to get beyond the 2nd layer.

    Re: fiberglass vs box

    Thickness varies depending upon
    1. The weight of the mat and or cloth.
    2. The shape of the pieces ( curved or flat )
    3. The size of the pieces
    4. Bracing added
    5. Proper application of the layers of mat
