    How should I brace this box?

    I saw that TypeRBass is using bedliner spray, so I will try that also. Double baffle is another thing I will do. Any other ways to brace? It's kinda hard because the ports get in the way.

    hrmmm my box has ZERO bracing in it. bedliner isn't going to brace the box, it just seals up the wood. my triple baffle helps A LOT. no panel flexing. and if you dont believe it, meh.

    frame brace in the middle? Resin the inside? Wooden dowel from front to bcak inb/w the ports? Corner brace?

    No I believe you. Seeing how large your box is and a tripple baffle helps THAT much, I could assume a double baffle would solve my problems. I might do a frame brace, but only if it is absolutely needed. I'm looking for the easiest way to brace.

    Corner braces = no tools for those angled cuts
    Wooden dowel - might as well go threaded rod. If I do threaded rod, the vertical and horizontal brace will be off center by a few inches. And no, I can't move the ports over to the right to get the rods to be in the center. The ports would get very close to the back of the left magnet.
    Resin - I'll pass on that

    Put a Threaded Rod right in the front baffle between the subs. Build it first then install it afterwards if its really necessary.

    If your that worried about it, take a board thats about 3/4"x2" glue it on edge across the inside face of the side (on the center line) your worried about flexing, i.e. the back side along the full width. No issues w/ it flexing thing, it will have to try to flex the equivilant of 2.75" instead of the .75" through the center, which it won't be able to do.

    What is the goal? SPL or SQL?
