    I plan on building the adire kit81's and have some 3/4 oak veneered plywood. It was $67 a sheet and looks like it has no voids. Could I use this or is it a bad idea?

    Go for it. Good bracing will solve most if not all your resonation problems. You may also want to spray the inside of the box with dynashield or a similar mass loading spray. I have also had fairly good luck with a few layers of rubberized undercoating which can be had cheap at any auto parts store.

    I second the undercoating idea. It makes a box seem much more solid, without affecting the internal volume.
