Dude, nothing is a dumb question unless it's not asked!!! I've done some boxes that were is really really really tight spaces so you tape it off and lay out as much solid mdf as posible. then start laying fiberglass, like 90's model ex-cab GMC and Chevy. I'll get the pic's tommorow and show what I mean.

If you use MDF where possible and do enough layers of 'glass so there's no flexing you should have a good final product. I've heard some crap fiberglass enclosures, but they just weren't solid enough, or weren't the right specs for the sub.

Actually using fiberglass is easy, but doing it proficiently takes a bit of practice. I'd read some fiberglass forum tips, get extra to practice with, and get to it. The smother you can get it from the start the less bondo/sanding you'll have in the end.

watching that dvd will make it seem so easy. imo fiberglass is all about patience. everytime you do something, you have to let it dry before you go on to the next step.

i forgot about the magic dvd ripper. i'll try it tonight or tomorow.
