    would there be anything wrong with using only one piece of mdf on the bottom endcap?

    Depends on how loud you want to play the sub, for a high enough SPL, you might introduce some flexing on the MDF endcaps. I would urge you to go with 2 layers of MDF on the top and bottom endcaps.

  5. Car audio usually has lots of compromises and you can get away with a lot more.
