It's probably going to rattle like no other but hey, it's your box...you might be able to get it to work.

I'd rather just do it right the first time.

well it will work but just make sure not to get it wet. no sure how it will sound. how thick is the wood? you know for like 30 bucks you can build one out of mdf.but it will work if built correctly.

plywood boxes are fine, the only bad thing about them is the void's in plywood. They can flex and even blow out leaving you with a box with holes in it. If you want to build a box out of plywood I would reccomend marine greade(void free) but it is much more expensive then MDF. A sheet of MDF is about $25 then some glue and screw's and your golden.

alot of people use plywood but the stuff james is tlaking about that is void free cause it is lighter tha mdf so it doesnt weight ther cars down as much and it sounds just the same and actually the way people were tlaking about it on another site plywood doesnt flex as much as mdf and it doesnt create as much saw dust when cutting
