Fast man! But it is looking good.
Are you going to use 'bars' or 'broomsticks' like suggested in post #135?

Yeah i can put those in after the side is glued on. I don't think i need a ton of bracing, correct? one should suffice just to stop the flexing...?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but danley's sub doesn't have a large brace down the center like this one, does it? Any insight as to why he doesn't use one? I don't think he is using a superior material....

Some use aluminium pipes with 'draadeind' (sorry that's dutch but I haven't a clue for the English word) in them.

That way the diameter is the smallest and you have a easy way to fix the bracing with it. The pipes will keep the inner distance perfect and choose shallow end nuts (you can make them drop in the wood, sorry for the English again) and something like 2 component machine glue for both nuts to fix them from the outside.
In other words: nut, side wall left, pipe, middle bracing, pipe, side wall right, nut and then the 'draadeind' trough all of them...... pffffffffff....and some rings....

With wooden 'broomsticks' use at least 3,5cm (35mm) but make sure you glue them and fix them with extra long screw bolts (pre-drill the wood to prevent splitting) from the outside. If you don't want them to go trough the bracing in the middle, you can use a two tapped end screw type (connecting screws? two side screws?)
