Yes MDF is best.

what des the MID setting doing on my pioneer stereo?

BTW to those who say you can not build a fiberglass box with wood, you do not know what you are talking about. You must use a dense wood as fiberglass will pulse as the bass creates pressure in the enclosure impacting the sound. The fiberglass is used to seal and strengthen the design reduce squeaks and rattles as well as help to make a custom fit.

Does anybody know what size speakers fit in the front door of a 95 Geo Prizm with out alot of work?

***If you do not know what your talking about you should not laugh at someone while making a fool of yourself.

Whats your thoughts of the Alpine Type X 10" Subwoofer?

I don't really mess with fiberglass but I've read a little about them and from what I've gathered you can use MDF. Its basically building the frame of speaker box...kind of like a enclosure skeleton.

i have a 600 watt mono amp but i dont know the ohms or anything else i want to get two 12"s what should i get?

I'm with Keven M. Me and a friend have built quite a few custom speaker boxes and MDF is a good choice. Not only is MDF highly resistance to pressure, it has many other perks including being resistant to warping good amount of screw holding ability and great bond strength, which worked well for us since we screwed and glued all sections and braced of our boxes. MDF is also moisture resistant and has great acoustic properties and doesn't chip like basic plywood but is more expensive.

how do you install an active crossover?

I recommend MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), but make sure you use the correct type. There are 3:

Car with NO cd player?

1. Moisture resistant are typically green
2. Fire retardent are typically red
3. High finition for powder lacking

How do I take out and replace a stereo cassette/receiver from from my 94 Honda Accord dashboard?

Keep in mind MDF is very heavy, but ideal for a fiberglass enclosure, and thickness matters when building sub enclosures. The standard for SPL (Sound Pressure Levels) is 3/4 - inch thick. I'd suggest making the enclosure, fiberglassing it, then placing it in the vehicle. If the enclosure is pretty large in size and your vehicle drops in the rear, you will need to get the vehicles suspension stiffened to compensate for the weight. Usually some new springs is all that is needed. Another nice thing about fiberglass enclosures, is that you can color it to match the interior of your vehicle. Good luck!
