    Eeek, odd flexing...

    The right side of my box, the far right panel flexes about an inch or more (port opening). How can I fix this? Should I tear the carpet off my side of my box, get another piece of MDF wood, and glue and screw it to that flexing piece for extra support? It looks as if the wood will break it's flexing so much, lol.

    run a piece of threaded rod from the inner port wall to the other side of the box. i wouldn't put any type of bracing in the port though.

    The inner port wall doesn't flex, just the side of my box. You PVAudio, you want to meet up at the HHGregg on 96th street tonight? I'll show you the L7s and maybe you could help me figure a couple things out.
