You could try Arauco ply instead of Birch. It was like $33 a sheet when I bought it. I've heard it works well and I'm happy with it on my box.

I'm not sure. I read that it's better than the Birch that Lowe's carries, but not as good as the 'higher end' birch ply. I can tell you that there were very few voids in it and it was a much nicer looking wood than the birch ply that Lowes had.

i agree 100% that the box is the main key, ive heard alot of people say that mdf will give you a better sound, but i think i will just go with double birch, and do a lil resin on the inside of the box, box is going to be for 3 nightshade 18s
