    Think bell. That's what it will ring like. You would have to double wall it and fill the void between the walls with a deadener or expanding foam or some such. It will be heavier than just about anything but cement. Cement would make a better enclosure.

    Re: Steel

    You can always just cover a wooden box with some diamond plate though. Give the idea that it's metal, yet don't have all the problems to deal with.

    Re: Steel

    take some of that metal and make "straps" to go around the box... kinda like what go around the top and bottom or a fishtank, and it would help with box flex
