I started building Thor this past weekend.

Will the design be negatively effected if I increase the thickness of all of the walls? I would like to make the walls 3/4" mdf covered in 3/4" red oak, resulting in 1.5" thick external walls. The internal transmission line will remain 3/4" mdf, as called for The internal volume will be the exactly the same, except for that the drivers will be mounted 1/2" farther out, due to the thicker front baffle. The drivers will remain flush to the baffle. The original design calls for 1" mdf, and I will have a combined 1.5" front baffle, and the speaker cabinet 10" wide instead of 9" wide. How will effect the sonics? Will the phase be effected by a wider cabinet?

Has anyone else built Thor? I am wondering if it is worth the effort to biamp this speaker also.
