Not exactly hardwood but I used edge-glued pine panels with ply-wood bracing on my Nova Forte's. It was super easy for a noob wood worker like me to make a nice (IMO) looking speaker. I did...

A pair of 3" diameter x 15" long ports would work. You could just use the precision port kits PE sales. Make sure you arent using the Yung amp with boost.

If you want to match the PB-1000's size/performance for less $ you're going to have to build a custom box. Simple as that.

You could easily stack 4 single subs into whichever configuration works. The upside is you have a modular system that can be repositioned into 4x1, 2x2, or 1x4 whenever you feel like it.
