DA,

We need more info.

Is it a sealed enclosure?
What are some of your construction details?
Did you use any stuffing?
What speakers are you using?

Hi DA,

Since it appears that you're going the economical route, here are a few cheap suggestions.

Glue (and screw) bracing in all the corners inside the boxes.
Glue (and screw) bracing across the walls inside the boxes.
Staple a thin 1/4" layer of heavy foam or rubber (like a cheap door mat) on the rear and opposite walls of the inside of the box.
stuff the boxes with dacron pillow stuffing. Use a material like "cheese cloth" around the back of the speaker to keep fibers out of the workings.

That will cure some of your problems, but you're probably getting good old fashion bass doubling (high harmonic distortion) from a cheap speaker.
