Metal will resonate. It would be very rigid but it may not be easy to kill the resonation

This^^ the box will probably ring every time the subs move. And how thick is the steel plate?

Couple sheets of sound deadener?

ive had a customer ask me about metal boxes. i told him he could try to make a box out of MDF and cover it in thin aluminum for the look he was going for

I won't truly make it soon if ever. I was just wondering if u could make it happen our not. But the plate we have at school is 3/8" & 1/4" and whoever said do sound dreamer thats what I'm thinking ud have to do. Can't think of a diff way to stop the resonation.

Internal sheet braces would help. basically some flat iron on edge welded to the sheet in X pattern... along with threaded rod. It can be done in other words, but you wont have any weight savings over mdf/plywood and the bracing is going to hurt internal airflow against the sides of the box.

I think you'd have better luck making a carbon fiber box.

Any time you have have a power wire next to your frame put some rubber hosing (or cut up an innertube) around it. The wire is bound to wiggle (due to driving or flex) and the casing will eventually wear through.

I love car audio so much because I will never be done. I can never win, and I will never get it finished or perfect. It always has me coming back for more, I can never get my fill of it, but I get what I need.
