    box building help

    i know this isnt the right place to post this but no one really checks the box construction page much.
    and i was wondering if 1/2 inch mdf board is good enough for 2 10edK's
    i know they say use 3/4" but my dad went to lowes and ordered 1/2 inch and he said that didnt have any other...so i was wondering if 1/2 inch will work.

    ummm.. make the front baffle double thick, brace it everywhere possible. If braced correctly and maybe over-done a little i think youll be ok.. just make sure u tak in account all the braces in the total volume..

    ps. I'm always helping in the box construction pages!

    no i dont think, but if u dont brace correctly it will flex and that may make it a little worse..

    Would be MORE than enough...;

    you can get a custom looking install with faux floors and sidewalls with 2 sheets. Just plan on your cuts, so that you got plenty of leftovers...
