    Is a 4'x8' sheet of MDF enough?

    Alright guys, I'm in the process of getting my box plans made by JMAC. The question I have is will (1) 4'x8' sheet of MDF be enough to construct a 1.25 cuft ported box for my civic.

    Re: Is a 4'x8' sheet of MDF enough?

    I somehow went through an entire 4x8' pece of wood on my box. I only wasted about 2 15x15 pieces which I cut too small. I actually am short and have to buy two 16x14" pieces off my friend. lol.
