Hi I am considering building a diffuser . The back panel , sides , top and bottom I am going to use wood , but I am considering using 1/4″ MDF for the slats. Could I get you opinion on this ?
Thanks

H, You can use MDF for the cabinet but the vertical and horizontal diffuser pieces must be veneered or solid wood. MDF is too absorptive.
