    Awesome looking box man..But you need to put some more screws on that side w/out very many..That will rattle because it will be weaker than the rest. Other than that, nice job dude!

    first off screws dont hold the box together, if you glue correctly thats what holds, screws just clamp while it drys.....secondly....why the hell did you use particle board? not smart, espcially with an l7.......



    I'm back to stock in my new car.....

    you did a good job on that box. the wood does look like particle board and not mdf. mdf is about the same as prticle board, only the particles are smaller, making the wood denser.
    bracing?? is there any on that baffle? i dont see any screws through it. Thats a fairly large box I would have gone 1" MDF or put some extra bracing on that baffle. You do not want the box to flex, so do all you can to prevent it. use thicker wood or brace the crap outta it.

    if possible i would mount a 2x2 mid way on that baffle (midway between the sub and edge of the box)
