I have decided it may be best to just use MDF and give it a go at Veneering. Never doen it but also never built a sub so why not! I am putting together a complete itemized list of parts with links to where they can be found. Please take a look and see if I am leaving anything out. Im going to use this as one of the starter post in the Build thread so that is why I am trying to be so detailed with it.
Behringer NX series amp: (NX6000D) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...amplifier.html

Driver of your choice: (Please consult Marty FAQ) https://www.avsforum.com/forum/155-d...tysub-faq.html
MDF for box: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Actual-0-75...MDF/1000075253
Lots of Clamps: https://www.harborfreight.com/catalo...cheting+clamps
Spray glue: https://www.lowes.com/pd/3M-Hi-Stren...hesive/1160531
I plan to use the spray glue for both the vaneer and attaching the foam inside the box. Again I have never vaneered so if this will not work please let me know.
Wood Glue: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Gorilla-Woo...-fl-oz/3121069
Matress pad: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Authentic...EaAq_BEALw_wcB
I opted for a queen size. Unsure how much was needed. Will update on size you will need.
Speaker wire: https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-Acc...ker+wire&psc=1
I love this stuff. Have a bunch left over so this is what I will be using but any 12-14 AWG wire will go the trick.
SpeakON Connector: https://www.parts-express.com/neutri...y3100s3dy0005c
SpeakON Cable: https://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_...ce007d0a240613
RCA to XLR Connector: https://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_...ce007d0a240613
This is assuming your AVR uses an RCA out for the subwoofer. If yours uses XLR then you likley spent a ton of money on it and know more about this stuff than me anyways
Router: Any plunge router will do I prefer this one: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Bosch-2-25-...Router/1014955
Jigsaw: Any Cheap Jigsaw will work.
Router Circle Jig:https://www.lowes.com/pd/Milescraft-...Kit/1000233663
Never use this one but will be picking it up myself. Even comes with the proper bit. Should make cutting the circle a breeze. This is not required though as one could simply make their own jig.
Random Orbital Sander: Any will do But I like this one https://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-3...-206036911-_-N
Brad Nailer: Helps hold the parts in place while glue dries. Also reduces the need for a ton of clamps. Any model will work but as stated in FAQ thread mid tier is better here. With that said I have had decent luck with Harbor Freight Brad nailers.
Im certain I am missing something. I am buying all the items I am missing now. Please let me know what I have left off.
Also ALL credit goes to
for most of this is pulled from the FAQ thread. But since I want to do a complete start to finish build thread I want to put the information together here so I can just copy it later. Plus it allows others to chime in and give me advice on what I am buying! Win Win.
