I don't think it is available in India you can use araldite to seal the joints this will work. By the way which sub will be going in this enclosure.

Gorilla Glue should be used only at the time of box construction. Used later, it will have no effect. If Fevicol has been used in the joints before putting screws, that should suffice for sealing the joint.

If the box is already made, one has to use something that will stay flexible over time. If the 3M sealant you mentioned is the common bathroom grout or glass sealant (tube applicator), adhesion to the MDF might be a problem - vibration will spoil the seal. The common carpenters' sealant for this is Fevicol mixed with sawdust, pressed into the joint.

Chirag - Have a suggestion for you - there are some enclosure calculators available online - which will help you determine what's the size of the box you should be building along with the frequency/power curve and some will go to an extent of specifying the various dimensions for your box...depending upon the size of your boot... try googling them out...

Finally you got a 2GA cable kya? From where??? What about the Fuse Box? Will you be using the same fuse box?

I have always used silicon sealant inside on the lines and on the outer joints onced it's screwed and than put the carpet on it after it has dried i.e. overnight. They work better and easier to use. A lot of experts recommend to use it.

Are you sure one can use M-Seal on the joints, What i know M-Seal becomes hard once it is dries won't this will be a problem.

mseal - tends to stick quite well to wood - once while we were in college someone broke a wooden chari's backrest - mseal was used - and it held up very well for the next 4 years... But one would need to be extra careful not to miss small patches from where air could leak...
