Default strong box 4 10s screws or staples glass or not

ive build boxes with screws and pre drilled and it sometimes still splits the wood and after awhile it seemed to come apart even with glue. so i built my last box with 1 inch staples and glue and glassed the inside it held up as lone as i used it. so the box im going to build now i wanted to know what u guys think the staples, with glass and a few braces swhould be ok right. i read on hear glassing dont help but it seem to seal my last box and the box didnt blow apart like the ones ive used just screws and glue on let me know how u guys feel. sorry if its been asked before

when u used screws how apart were they, what size bit u use to predrill....Ive done tons of boxes and maybe will have a split of wood or 2 but mostly on teh small pieces on ports...

I have also used braid nails and no issues but only on a single sub enclosure or the ones that have multiple cuts like the ones that go under seats of trucks

You don't need anywhere near that many screws, just enough to suck the joint tight together while it dries. On my 60" wide boxes that I'll put in my truck, I'll use maybe 6-7 screws down the entire side, so about 8-10" spacing. I pre-drill, and can screw 2" from the corner without ever splitting the wood...I've literally never split MDF when pre-drilling and using proper spacing.
