    5/8 particle board ok?

    i know mdf is the way to go, and it is what my boxes are made of now. However, the 5/8 particle board(not chipboard), seems to be what many prefab boxes are made of, and it is MUUUUUCCCHHH cheaper than mdf. As long as it is for a normal application(500w or less), is this ok? Thanks! Please don't flame!

    just get the MDF... it's not THAT much more expensive when you consider your time investment making the box... and then remaking it with MDF 6months later

    the particle board box is perfect for a sony explode but besides that I doubt it would hold up let alone sound good with any other woofer thats somewhat powerful.

    I wouldn't use it, unless you're sitting on a pile of it for free and can afford to double or triple it up.

    Save yourself the $5-10 and then let us know what your trunk looks like when your box explodes down the road
