    Air leaks, rigidity, airflow.

    If you are incorporating it for the sake of adding strength proper bracing can go a long way. Put a large dowel across the inside of the enclosure. Anohter very key reason I use fiberglass RESIN on everything is to improve the longevity of the wood. I have had many subwoofer enclosures that get a little bit of water on them and leak over time (or become moldy), so if it is an "exposed" surface that isnt covered with carpet or vinyl, it gets resin.

    does NOTHING for strength...especially when just using resin and no cloth

    It adds an estimated 2db, according to research.
