    Dangers of leaving box unfinished?

    Those of you who've left your boxes unfinished(ie, in raw MDF), have you had any problems with the wood cracking up due to moisture/cold weather/etc, with the box just sitting in the trunk? How cold is it where you live?

    Just curious, and a little worried, that's all...Thanks for all and any input.

    way upstate NY, below zero most of the time, lol. Never had any problems with enclosures and the cold, but noticed the subs slow down a bit.

    nah, sometimes the box is sexier when raw... so long as you didnt doodle all over the fricking thing.

    No real dangers. It will last years with common sense.

    i dont question how long itll last, cuz i also dont think covering a box makes that big of a diff when it comes to protecting it. i had my box naked for a good couple months and i just like it so much more now that its covered. much more pleasing to the eye, in my humble opinion of course.
