type x is a pretty heavy duty sub. Definitely needs some strong support to withstand the power. 3/4" MDF should do the trick just fine. But if you want the assurance of a sound structure you CAN upgrade to 1". However, bigger board bigger bill. Remember that...

I've got an Adire Audio Tumult 15, which is heavier than the Type-X by a little over 10lbs, running 1000w RMS in a 5/8" MDF box with 3/4 front baffle to keep down on the weight as the box is ported 3.5cu ft and I drive a sporty car so I'm trying to keep the weight added minimal. It's just very, very well braced to keep strength and integrity. It also has a support ring around the magnet that is attached to the sides to take some of the strain away from the front of the enclosure. Works great and weighs less than smaller boxes I have made in the past with 3/4"
