The small crack started at woofer hole and ran horisontally in the middle of the mdf panel not the line where the continuous panels are glued....

So the wood glue holds the thing together just fine but mdf itself with it's small fiber structure is not strong enough. I suggest it is wise to use metal rods in such box design even if you first don't see any signs of weaknesses. Someone here on the forum also told that a guy he new built a subwoofer box like this, but then dropped it and it broke like an egg.

Lovely. I particularly like the contour of the baffle edge going from tweeter to woofer.

I wander if it would be wise to encase or cover the whole thing with fiberglass resing before finishing the box. It would be as heavy as a rock though.
