Default should I do some bracing?

I'm running two 12's on 4k rms. 3.81cuft tuned to 32.09hz. I did a double baffle on top. Subs up port back. Just finished putting everything together.

Wondering if I should add a wooden dowel or something. Should it be fine like this?

box dimensions would help.

I try to have some sort of bracing every 12-16", whether it be simple strap bracing or a window brace...

You need something going up and down between the subs atleast. Id add one from front to back in the middle of the panel too.
