so is that using the subs to push/pull each other and are they easy to bottom out that way or need less rms wattage to run at full tilt or is it just plain louder because the subs match each other in throw resulting in a much faster harder punching sub

if the subs are wired in correct phase it should sound the same as if all 4 subs were in the box. the 2 that are inverted would have to be phased oppositely in order to fire into the box properly.

plywood is made of thin plies of wood glues together with the grains in different directions to make it less flexible

if you want to bash some ones box, you should atleast know enough to figure out what it's made of
