Maybe a 5mm alu panel fastened with damping glue would do the trick. But not so easy to implement. Some very dense wood panel is easier to get hold of I guess.

I am pondering using ceramic tiles with damping glue. But before that I must test with a bit of MDF if it can be a good choice. The tile is stiff and approx 6mm thick. Damping glue of approx 1mm. This way it is rather thin and does not alter the box dimensions very much. Also the surface does not need any work.

Making a super duper pair of cabs applying all you've learned and dream of just from scratch would be another upcoming winter pass-time idea though. Then you transplant the organs to the new body (very Frankenstein LOL) and you decide. If you had jumped category to the special cabs success stories club then you may buy more drivers and best crossover parts, duplicate, and sell the normal but reinforced and beautiful white cabs speakers to a very happy adopter who lacks the time and/or skill.

Decisions decisions....If I understand you Salas you think it would be best to make a new cabinet. But I do not like it remembering that router hard work getting it right lol. I rather try to improve what I got. Do you think it is useless and even destroying what I have you mean?

Useless no, but I am afraid of when the gradual volume eating will rear its ugly face.

Ah ok, well that is no problem since I was thinking of using it on the outside of the cabinet, you believed I wanted it on the inside, right?

It might look weird , I was thinking something like this picture, just a free hand sketch. Side-back-side. White tile trying to match color, and I think it is possible to paint the tile if necessary.

Try with wood on sides of the speaker. Something like Sonus Faber.

Stained wood with rounded edges would look nice and the cabinets would benefit from it. The only better thing than two materials glued together with their whole surface for speaker wall is sandwich box filled with sand.
