Well...i heard after 3 cubic feet you need to support it. Is that true?

and does it matter where you put the pipe at?

Thanks,

You can use threaded rod if you want, but i find that 2x2s work good as well. Doubling up your 3/4 MDF on all sides may completely eliminate the need for bracing, but it's still a good idea.

Use no less then 5/8".

I always double baffle at all times, no matter what.
from then if you have enough wood and room, just double all the sides up.

Yup just threaded rod. or external bracing like the 2x2's. Try to stay out of the box as much as possible.

If your box is flexing alot, then thats when you know that you need to brace it.

i saw someone put a screwdriver on top of the box and burped it. If ti moved he braced it more.
