    plexi...

    ok, so i searched around a lil bit and nothing popped out at me. when putting a plexi panel on a box how thick does it have to be? the panel is gonna be about 12" x 20". i'm running 2 10s in the box... nothing crazy. in fact most of u guys hate my subs, but they're what i have and i am saving up for something else. i was thinkin 1/2" would be ok, but i want to be sure. oh yea... they're audiobahn sound q's hooked up to a brutus 1600. thanks.

    1/2 will be fine if you have it laying around.

    Re: plexi...

    With a panel that size I wouldnt use 1/2". If you could go with a smaller window you could probably get away with it. But IMO, it would be best to use 3/4".
