    first off, i'm trying to find some nice speaker spikes. my sub project has begun. i'd like some really nice looking spikes for use on carpet with the sub ending up in the 200lb. range. also, i scored some nice 1" pre-veneered, furniture grade plywood. should i double layer any of the walls, i.e. opposing wall, driver wall? i don't have enough to do the whole box. might go and pick up a sheet of 1/2" though and use that. should have pics up soon also.

    thanks,

    eric

    I would double the driver wall if you want to flush mount the driver itself. If you router out a groove to fit the driver flange (1/2" to 3/4") it'll leave only 1/4" to 1/2" to support the driver itself. It's the only side that might really need it.

    With 1" plywood, you should be OK for the rest if you brace it appropriately without doubling anything...
