Default Bracing

Quick question, how much bracing is necessary for a small (35L) sealed enclosure made from 18mm MDF with a 30mm thick front baffle?

Will simply joining it and sealing it all adequately be sufficient for such a small box?

I have got this box:
Visaton - Lautsprecher und Zubehör, Loudspeakers and Accessories
bracing (you can see one bracing part in schema) makes noticeable difference. I would recommend you at least one brace per side/top

Unless a massively powerful sub I shouldn't worry too much, longest panels my need doing, depends on their length IMO

I've read every 8" should be braced...but technically you don't NEED any bracing, the sub will work without bracing. You just need to compromise between the internal volume the bracing takes up and an acceptable amount of resonance from the enclosure itself.
