IMO you should cut up some matt real fine.  mix up some resin,  pour in the fine peices and pour it into the box.  move the box around so it hits all edges.  it should work.

No NO NO. What you want to do is resin the outside then cut your openinge. At that time you can reach in and reinforce the seams. One layer is ok you are not building a strctural part just reinforceing one. And oh yea your sub won't "blow it apart". That would take way more energy than you could ever produce with a couple of woofers, but a stick of dynamite is a diferent story.

OK, thanks.  I didn't really mean blow the box apart, just meant blow the seam apart.  I have heard of that happening before because it wasn't reinforced enough, and I just wanted to make sure I didn't have that problem.

If you cant get inside the box to paint resin on all the seams mabye you could mix some resin with body filler
Note, this works awesome when actually putting bondo on the entire enclosure. Mix a cap full of resin with ~3in of bondo and mix it. Then add the normal amount of bondo hardner. This will make the bondo a little more fluid, but not so much that it just runs off, and it will be MUCH easier to work with and get a VERY smooth bondo layer. This will make it so you don't have to sand as much.
Ok, here's another suggestion. Just put the fleece on and put the resin/hardner over that. Then when it's dried completely you can go back and grind off a small section of the fleece at a time. Then lay your matt and resin in its place. To make the form you can use tape. Then basically you can make it as thick/thin as you want it.
Just remember that fiberglass is strongest on curves. So it doesn't need to be nearly as thick on a corner as it does on a large flat spot.
