Im about to build two underseat boxes for some Sony 10s to fit underneath the back seat of a 98-99 chevy silverado ext cab. Could I use 1/2" mdf to get as much air volume as possible or would it not be practical?

Thanks

if it's like under 300w, I guess so. If you turly want to maximise though, I strongly recommend that you try fiberglass.. they will be much thinner and stronger than 1/2" MDF.

And the fiberglass supplies would cost more than his subs. :banghead:

Id try fiberglass, but hes not paying jack crap. Oh well, 1/2" it is.

If you just running some sony's and want max airspace why not just use some good old cardboard and duck tape.

 

J/K, The 1/2" MDF would work fine especially since you got sony's

1/2" (5/8" probably) will be fine for your purposes. Try adding some braces from top to bottom to support the upper baffle for the subs.
