custom box help

prob gonna start building my sub box soon, so i already know what i am doing as far as design goes. i already looked at how much material is gonna be but my question is what thickness of MDF should i use to build the box? i am also gonna have the plexiglass top so you can see the inside of the box. what thickness should this be? im lookin to build somethin like this.

3/4" Is token! Ya, make sure that if you are using plexiglass as a baffle, that your subs are REAL snug. Plexiglass resonates under that kinda of air pressure. That picture looks mad phat! Keep us update on the process.

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

yeah thats what i was thinkin for thickness. i have also heard 1" thickness for the plexiglass. is this good or too thick? im runnin 3 12" and the only spaces in the actual box that the subs are gonna be in is a small hole for the neon light wire and the wire for the subs. will this interfere with the subs? like will i hear a loud whistle ever time the subs hit? im wonderin if there is a small rubber gromet or somethin to use to slip the wires through but keep the air from comin through.

Street glow makes a light kit that is used for that, I know of someone who just wired directly to the subs but he was a dumb $h!t in general so I guess you can try to hard wire it directly and if it doesn't work out go to street glow[/color]
