Proper Birch if you think you're at all likely to stick in a serious driver at any point in the future, IMO.

If you imagine you'll be happy with lower output long term, then maybe cheaper wood, though if that were the case you could have saved on including quite such a huge vent.

FWIW,
David.

Going okay so far, balanced the panels together and it looks like a speaker!

Finally got round to finishing these (need some more screws in the grills), very pleased with how they ended up and glad I have completed my first speaker build. Only tested in my little studio but pleasantly surprised with the £60 300w p-audio. Interested to see how they would sound with better drivers for stand alone use in a PA style.

Thanks DMorison for sharing your knowledge, spending the time doing dims and putting the plan together!

Hey, you're welcome.
Looks like good work finishing up the boxes, I'm glad they sound good to you so far.
Obviously, when you do get to push them harder will be the real test, but they should at least get you by for a bit with that driver.
Assuming you do grow out of them at some point, the large port is ready to take considerably more output from a beefier driver, so you don't have to replace the whole box.
Cheers,
David.
