    mdf is an acoustically dead material and is a lot stronger.

    lutz i've seen partical board enclosures actually blow apart from the pressure. just spend the extra 10 bucks or so on a sheet of mdf. you will be happier



    bought from ridinhi,vitveet,dbr,sicaudio and 99grandprixgt, and more ........... sold to player3,foomasta69, pitbull, brodiesel and dragnix 12887 traded with louisiana crx

    yea... particle board enclosures went out a LONG time ago... just get mdf bro... otherwise you'll spend time and money, only to have it most likely fail.

    Birch is accoustically different than MDF, and a properly built MDF box is plenty strong, and real birch (not the cabinet grade at home depot) is expensive as fck.
