Threaded rods? They are cheap and work well.

you can use a 2x4 or all thread rod .............the mdf will work ...but with small pieces ,you have a chance of splitting it ..

Just get some threaded rods then. I used 7/8 steel rods, $3 each. Then the nuts and bolts we .15 each. So the total for my bracing was under $10. All you have to do it drill a few holes, put the rods in and bolt them down. Then use a hacksaw to cut off the extra.

Be sure to put nuts and washers on the inside of the box as well, to keep the box square and stop it from flexing inwards. Might be a good idea to throw some loctite on to keep from vibrating loose.

The bracing helps it sound better

Just be sure to use some silicon or something that can seal the hole you cut for the threaded rod.

I cut the hole smaller so I had to thread the rod through, so no leaks in mine. And like someone mentioned above, make sure to put washers and bolts on both the inside and outside. So if you do 2 rods, you will need 8 bolts and 8 washers.

Depends on the dimensions, and thickness of the material you used to Build it. 7cuft isn't a small box. Large panels of 3/4" MDF can flex like a bugger if you let them.
General rule of thumb is the larger the panel, the more bracing it will need. But it would help to see a pic of the box.

yeah thats what i was thinking it is 3/4 MDF and the longest panel is 37 inches by 26 so but the port is ggonna be braced against it so i figured it would help, the port runs along the bottom 4.5 inches by 37inches, the subs are on the top of the box thats about 22 by 39
