You might concider getting some Sound Board for lining the walls of your cabinet.
I used it in a room for demonstrating car stereo products, it works quite well.
If you apply it on the back of the doors of your cabinet you wont be adding a lot of weight.
Its designed to be installed between the studs and the drywall but can be used in different ways.
I don’t know much about the stuff I used, it was purchased a long time before I worked for that shop.
The boards didn’t have any brand names on them.
I really like your labyrinth (zig zags), it will effect the flow of air exiting the cabinet when your DC is running. There are things you could do to get more flow.
The lay out of you labyrinth with more flow (less hair pin turns / more opening).
You could incorpoarate another low profile labyrinth under the cabinet.
I think you are less likely to hear the sound exiting at the floor.
This would add stucture similar to a torsion box below your heavy collector.
You could build a cart at the same level to assist you when emptying your bin.
Good luck with your project it looks to be a well thought out design.
Don’t forget to blog your progress, I look forward to it.
