I purchased the DIY plans and getting the tools and materials together for my first bass traps (been fun smuggling these in past my wife, one tool at a time :).
These are great plans so thank you for putting these together.
As I’m in Singapore, moisture levels are a concern with the MDF over the long-term. I have seen moisture resistant MDF which is supposedly 30% denser and uses some form of resin to make the MDF suitable in wet areas (bathroom etc). I’ve searched the internet but cannot find any reference to building acoustic traps with this material.
Obviously I don’t want to use it if it compromises the bass trap coefficent, but could save significant time not having to seal both the inside and outside with suitable prime.
Do you have any experience or advice with this material?

I have an idea about perforated mdf Panels which panels you can be applied to your doors, fabric backgrounds and you can use it alternatively to provide ventilation where needed.
