You can get a lot of different answers to this question. There is no one answer to do it right. But this might help to get some ideas:
It references the bracing from a B&W speaker: Click the image to open in full size. but takes it a step further.
In the end you will have to decide for yourself.

Is there a trade-off with parallel flat surfaces vs, bracing; i.e. might make a "better box" but add other problems.

Look up the "basslines" build for bracing the looks like it would be very effective and doesn't take up too much volume.
