    Built properly you should hear no difference between a mdf and a fiberglass enclosure. Fiberglass conforms to curves where as mdf doesn't. As for the dynamat that's a highly debated subject. Most of the time when it's done they are trying to stop the enclosure from resonating.

    Yep, fiberglass is strongest when curved.
