The fiberglass should be on the inside. wanring it is dirty work so wear gloves. better still keep an extra pair of gloves handy.

No nails, only good screws. When tightened, the screw causes the wood to stress and the threads of a wood screw ensure that there is no scope for any movement of the wood surfaces when they are under pressure. Nails are tacky (pun not intended). Dont listen to Navin lol, you'll see nails on the surfaces, but you'll never know whats underneath. Screwing is a must, in all its interpretations.

Silicon is a good sealant although I rarely use it. Now I'm starting to sound like a carpenter, nevertheless, I make sure that the MDF is precisely cut so that there is no need for too much sealant. Some suspect areas can be sealed with a mixture of fine wood shavings and fevicol.

What is not mentioned is bracing. One brace could be the partition to divide your enclosure's volume into half since you will be having two subs. Besides that also, use 2" by 1" wood bars to join the two largest opposite wall surfaces of the enclosure to one another.

Hey B&T I did say I used screws, and yes that is a very good point you made about nails; LBM use screws too. The Fiberlgass is not only a good sealant but makes the cabinet stiffer too and although messy to apply does not add much weight to the cabinet. I used 2 layers (1.5mm each). Be happy I did not recommed concrete, B&T isn't that what your friend used?

Bracing. Well there is bracing and there IS bracing. The best form would resmeble the cabinet made famous by B&W a few years ago (they called it the Matrix). You can never be too thin, too rich, or have too much bracing.

LBM if you are really thinking about a god sub box, think non parallel surfaces, braced and damped. The box should be stiff (so it does not flex), light (so it stores as little energy as possible), and acoustically dead.

What type of panel joint are you thinking of? Dovetail? Dowel?

I agree with B&T, the best way to nail this, is to screw it. Screwing will make the box firm and tight.

Yes, we screw all our boxen. Not often, only once, when we make the boxen.

Let us know if you want to also, we can send you one in a flat pack and you could get going. Screwing is daunting business for the inexperienced, please wear adequate protection, or we can have Sam send you a manual.

Ok are the end results different if boxen screwing is done without protection. Can you release a demonstration video on Youtube, Paper manuals are so passe, a virtual manual would be good with video, with and without protection
