yep, unless ur perspex is an inch thick, it will flex... trust me, its much safer to use laminated glass like car windows, and cheaper and it wont flex, on that note try it anyway considering you have already made it.

I would like to see the finished product.

12mm bullet proof glass, is not going anywhere and i can even carry a gangster in the back and he cant shoot me through the sub box.

I used 1 X 12mm and 1 X 20mm for my old box perspex...it was fine. Glass is better in terms of strength (ie 12mm like Aaron said), but is heavier too. Also bear in mind that perspex scratches easier than glass.

Some things to consider :wink:
