    the peace i had was about 3'x2' it was about $60.
    Look for a plastics or glass place in the phone book call around and some pne will point to the right phone number.

    when i say glue i actually mean fuse, seal, attach.. ya know? If I screwed them together that's fine but i still wanted to use something stronger than silicon seal to seal the seams.

    Ohh, k no just use sillicon its better because it doesnt dry hard, use elmers in between the wood peaces when your scrweing it together. (suggest drilling and screwing the box together first just to make sure its all right, then take apart and glue. when your done if your still paranoid about air leaks you can use liquid nails inside the box on all the seams.

    Personally I'd screw it all together and seal all the seams with clear silicone caulk. When it's done fill it with water and see if it leaks. If it does drain it out let it dry and reseal where it leaked. Should work out fine. Liquid nails should also work pretty well if you want it glued as well as screwed. Certainly would be strong seams.

    good luck finding 3/4 inch plexi fora rerasonable price. the stuff is prohibitively expensive. My piece of plexi one inch thick, dimensions 7x48 cost nearly $100 retail. and that is just one piece!

    realistically, lexan or plexi are indeed stronger, or at least have hte potential to be stronger than MDF. However, they flex much much more easily, and its very difficult to add bracing to teh box, at least mroe so than MDF, and still look good.

    thus, its mch more often that you will find plexi enclosures that flex, contributing ot ****poor sounds. Ive never personally heard an all plexy box htat has sounded good yet. this could be for a myriad of reasons, but Its really just too cost prohibitive to work with.

    my vote for assembly, should you choose it to work with, is to use the adhesive that breaks apart the chains and repolymerizes the acrylic at the joint. It becomes stronger than the bulk material, so it will be strong and doesnt even require sealing on the inside, where you could see whatever you used.

    also no screws required!
