All too true both last posts are, and I'll naysay no further on the subject.

Whatever types or combinations of materials employed - I'd still recommend ply for all internal bracing and sub-enclosures- the basic cabinet design would be the same.

I am now going through the cabinet design and am considering different front face construction styles.

I understand the edges of the front can have an impact. I was considering an overhang on the front of about 1/2". Bad Idea? It's a style I like.

Arguably, the treatment of the perimeter edges would have more acoustic impact than such an overhang - but I think it would require a substantial radius - well over a couple of inches - to effect a significant sonic benefit. One only need visit any of the few remaining "audio salons" to see the wide range of designs with varying degrees of attention paid to details such as edge and recessed front panel diffraction - in many cases on higher end speaker enclosures selling in the 10s of thousands of dollars range.

In other words, - it probably couldn't hurt?
