Some cabinet shops and hardware stores can special order it, but it's extremely hard to find in my area. You could either double up 2 sheets of 1/2" MDF, or make it that much beefier by using 2 layers of 3/4". Good luck finding 1" though, if you can find a chain store that sells it please post here.

As has been mentioned, a lumberyard is your best bet. I have a shop here that caters to woodworkers and hobbyists and I swear they can get any type of wood in existence. I love going in that place just to see samples.

Although pricey, 1" Balsa works great, other than that, is this a fully loaded BTL on like 4kw? if so then I'd recommend double layer 3/4 over single 1" any day. 3/4 is much easier to work with and easier on the saws. You have to take things like that into consideration. Double wall 3/4 then throw a brace or two in there and you should be set!!

We are lucky we have a lumber salvage yard here. They basically buy all the odd stuff that no one can sell and buy out surplus's from places going out of business.. They have everything from 1/16" loowhaan I think is how ya spell it. up +4" MDF and everything in between and some not so in between. But like everyone else said a well built box with 3/4 and a bit of bracing will work fine. Unless you are just going after some crazy numbers.

I checked at Home Depot and they said they could special order it at 39.95 a sheet. for 5 bucks more you could double up 3/4". I however think I may get one sheet to use for my baffles - not sure yet.
