    Plan out the assembly so you can reach the panels to glue/screw them. Meaning the top/bottom obviously can't be reached, so the sides will be full height.

    For the top you can screw/glue small pieces on the sides so the top can sit on them to hold it while you screw/glue it together. Also pre drill all the screw holes as it's a LOT easier that way.

    Assuming you're doing double thick walls, cut the inner panels so the box goes together like a puzzle and will somewhat hold each panel in place so you can attach it.

    Some guys do a 2x4 frame first and attach the panels to that, but I've never tried that way. I've done 6-7 walls my way and they go together pretty easily, just takes a lot of time if working alone.

    I assemble in this order:

    bottom
    back
    sides
    top
    port walls
    baffle - pre drill sub mounting holes
