    Box Lining Question

    Anyone ever line their box with DuRok or Hardy Rock boards ?
    Was wondering if that would make a diff. since I see people talking about lining/building boxes out of concrete and such.?

    you want the inside to be as smooth as glass. people use concrete for strength and it is usually sandwhiched between layers of wood...

    I've used concrete for both actually. Did a concrete wall once for a buddy of mine, and was doing crazy numbers with shitty speakers.

    So would DuRok work for changing the wave form in the box? or would doing straight concrete be better? Just trying to figure out some things if I ever decide to do some competing and figuring out lightest over heavest way to go with some of these things.

    Durock has a lot of air and Styrofoam in it. I don't think it would be the best material to line a box with.

    If I decide to actually compete... Yeah, I will go full all out.. Only reason I haven't started yet is because I don't feel like getting into my savings account. Over the past 15 years of just daily systems and stuff I've spent more than enough to buy a very nice house with lol...

    Why do you need to do that? Just fiberglass / resin it.
