End of the day, 3/4 "nominal" / 18mm is common in NA at least. Unless you really think the SDX 12 can't work in a 3/4 cab, I would give those dimensions. As Chris says, its up to the builder to adjust for changes, and some people probably shouldn't use tools.
If you think it really needs a thicker baffle, say so and reflect that in the drawing. Unless I had concrete "don't do this" words from the vendor, I wouldn't use a 1.5" cab by default. Might double the baffle.

Another words does it make sense to make documentation for the SDX 12 for sub cab I it's out of 3/4" material. The same applies for SDX10 .
Personally I would use 1.25" inside as well as outside and call it a day.

Does it make sense to have the same sub cabinets redrawn for 3/4,1,1.25 and 1.75" thick materials.

Al just asking
I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.

If the "design" calls for a thicker than 3/4" baffle, I'd call it 1.5" baffle. Most people are gonna buy a sheet of 3/4 and won't buy 1" material just for the baffle. But they can build a double thick baffle. 3/4 is slightly over kill for bracing, but not bad. So, 3/4" works all around. A guy can buy a sheet and make a sub.
