Default plexiglass. which one do i buy? best place to buy?

I'm going to do plexiglass Windows in my 4th order build. I'm going to be doubling 3/4" for the whole enclosure. I want to put in Plexi Windows but I'm not sure what to use. There are so many different types out there. Is there a specific Plexi used for car audio? Where is the best place to buy it?

From my understanding, plexi has more if a tendency to shatter/split opposed to lexan. However lexan isn't cheap to say the least. Overly thing I've read says to do lexan. Unless its a window, than plexi should suffice

I never use less than 5/8" thick plexiglass or lexan. (3/4" preferred)

That link takes you to 1/4 inch. 3/4 is what I'm looking for so it mounts flush
