yes or no? THICK glass instead of plexi
well, i'm going to be making a small ported box to have sitting around when I need one (1.25 cubes). Only for a 3-400 watt 10'', so no need to be bigger.
Well, I have access to some sheets of 1/4(maybe even 3/8, it's **** thick) glass, about 10"x14". I'm thinking i'd like to use it instead of plexi on the top of the box. I would rout and recess the glass in, then make a top piece to screw it down and seal it airtight with some type of sealer, that wouldn't be a problem.
Any problems with doing this? I doubt there's any chance of it breaking from anything in my trunk. It's in the wood storage garage of my woodshop class, and it's survived however many years of kids probably hitting it with wood and rulers and stuff. I'm thinking it'd look good, and I have no fear of it being weak. It's stiffer than plexi, so I don't see why it wouldn't work.
I could probably take a couple pieces and keep it for future boxes, my teacher has no need for it. Might even be safety glass, never broke a piece and don't plan on it.
