I just don't really have the motivation to do the carpentry or especially the design myself.
It would be interesting to try it out with construction techniques such as those used in the fEARful designs, where they used carefully braced 1/2" plywood, resulting in a very lightweight cabinet.
ugly rumor wrote:The problem with unbraced 1/2' bass cabinets is the resonance of the cabinet. bracing keeps the resonance to a minimum, letting the sound of the speaker be uncolored. 1/2" MDF would work unbraced, but then you have a heavy and unstable cabinet.

I guess that's a potential, but I haven't heard any of the Acme cabinets have any problems like that.
