    is this enough bracing?


    ok subs will be 4 15inch re se's off of a aq3500d

    1. one threaded rod down the middle, is that enough?

    2. ill have a flushmount baffle(as shown) but is two sheets plus the beauty panel ontop needed?

    3. also, i only have room to mount the aq on the box, if i have that side double thick mdf plus rubber grommits, is that enough to stop vibration/flexing?

    or this. the lighter gray parts would be like 1x4's covering all the edges and down the middle

    Re: is this enough bracing?

    Its not the amount the subs weighs that determines bracing!The MM of 4 15's at 45hz is alot and at resonance the box can flex tremendcily.The bracing is to stop this not support the weight of the subs.

    Re: is this enough bracing?

    id rather be safe than sorry, and since my amp is going to be on the box i really want to be safe. heres what i think ill do. 1x1 board run around like i showed, does it matter what type of wood?

    then allthread down the middle, and between each sub. then on the wall with the amps, have it double layered
