yeah saw it in tube form some years back, but not here.. was kinda hard to source back then, but I was hopin it was more available today. and here too.
look like I go hadda revise the plan for this project and just make a single big enclosure for the entire rear dash and use shallow angles. go hadda partition it too. more wuk aand weight that I was hopin to avoid.

what a sheet for 3/8 MDF nowadays?

It would work but wouldn't be cost effective, need to seal & conceal the backs of 6 speakers that are just short of 5" height, that's like 5 risers each + mdf to close the base, so each speaker gonna cost ^$200 just to enclose. not practical for me
