    He is considering doubling up everything, so 1.5" thick all around, do you think that would be necessary or would good bracing be enough?

    I'd vote doubled for overkill, it fits the theme too. 1" particleboard may be an easy button option too. Brace the long spans.

    Re: Sundown NSv2 18s wall

    For the sake of doing it right the first time I would definitely double wall it, unless you can weld it all very good. Is this going to be a sealed wall or what? (sealed from the back that is)

    Re: Sundown NSv2 18s wall

    yes sealed from the back, port and subs firing forward.
    I could put them in separate boxes for added bracing and safer for the subs. then just put a single flush mount baffle(on top of each double baffled box) to connect them and make it look nice

    At that point I would just double wall it. Get some resin as well and put some coats on all of the joints to help seal it up and make it stronger
