    there's no in difference in sound if you build them right.

    mdf is easier to work with, whereas fiberglass can be a real pain. it's also a lot cheaper and less time consuming. i usually make the entire box out of mdf then add 'glass to give it that custom look.

    Don't forget the weight factor too. A properly built and braced glass box can weigh a fraction of the same size properly built and braced MDF box.
