    correct the box will work if it isn't square. however, make sure that the angles on the edges are right so the two pieces of mdf will line up correctly so they will be no leaks.

    First of all, a lot of prefab boxes come w/ the back & the baffle at an angle to eachother to try to further deflect the rear wave of the sub. Second of all, if you try to put the amp in the box, you're going to have to run a bunch of wires through your box, which will almost certainly cause a leak, and if you ever want to change a gain or crossover point or fuse on your amp you will be fcuked. also amps need cool air around them. It will most likely heat up the inside of the box pretty f*ing fast and then either be shut off by its thermal protection or just blow up.
