    Pascal,

    I presume you are talking about this:

    Based on this:

    Sorry, but I didn't take any pics of the insides and since the driver is permanently sealed to the baffle, I can't take any for you.

    I built mine out of 1/2" birch plywood and used a single 1" vertical brace centered on the back. It is simply put together with titebond glue and 18 gauge 1-1/4" brads.
    There are 1" strips glued to the inside to which the baffle is attached.
    Damping material is:

    All of the parts also came from bltsound.

    I also loosely packed it with poly fiber from the hobby store.

    Feel free to PM also.

    Good luck.:D
