MDF is more tightly packed/made so use 3/4" MDF with 2" drywall screws & a product called liquid nails - its an adhesive ......

particle board sounds terrible. my first box i ever built was with a particle board. at first i didn't think it sounded all that bad but when i made another one with mdf and put the same sub in there, it sounded better.

also don't get that liquid nail stuff on your hands. it is a b!tch getting that sh!t out.

nope. not at all. eventually it's going to fall apart. and your screws are going to fall into the box. a huge problem. avoid particle board.
