Six sides to a box, so therefore you are doubling the layers of MDF, right?

Are you looking for corner lap details, internal bracing or wood glue advice?

Sorry about that. 12 hours is unusual. Sometimes there just aren't any mods online to do the work. It's normally much faster.

2 boxes, so 12 sides total - now I get it.

Is there a question or are you just posting an intended project?

My second post is missing...??? This is ridiculous.

The first panel (baffle) is facing the listener. The remaining 11 is at a 90 degree and layered to together. I want some help, ideas, and suggestions before I take my plunge router to the stock. So this should be a T-Line with 11 layers of 3/4" MDF 8"x48" plus the front baffle (8"x36") for each cabinet.

That is not a very efficient or cost effective way to build an enclosure. You could get both boxes of that size from that amount of material and have some left over. It would take less time to build as well.

Thank you, but that is not the goal here. This is a research project. Efficiency and cost are not the objective right now. I appreciate your help though.
