    different types and sizes of subs that I have.

    thx

    It happens because she gets so much rod from other guys during the day, that when you get home its already been bored out to 30 over, and your only setup for 10 over

    But Im planning on building just a box with the ports facing the rear and having the WHOLE top piece removable where the subs are mounted. They will be firing upwards. So bascially I need to modify all four edges with a type of removable connectors, something threaded etc....

    Maybe some bolt studs around the baffle and use some weather stripping to seal it up

    Double up all around where the baffle will be mounted to. On the outer edge, drill holes straight down to sink in some all-thread about every 8-10", leaving enough thread sticking up to have room for a washer/nut to secure the baffle. Drill holes in the baffle to fit and slide down where you have placed the all-thread. On the underside of the baffle, use some 1/2" thick weatherstripping that'll make contact with the inner part of the doubled-up sides described earlier.

    What if I used just thicker MDF, like 1" instead of 3/4" ?

    I guess it kinda depends on what size all-thread you use as well. If you have the room to run the weatherstripping inside the thread and still have a good seal with 1" MDF, go for it.
