The material of choice for sub boxes is 3/4" MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard). You can get it in full or half sheets at any home store. You can also get it pecut to 16" or 18" widths as shelving (sometimes they also call it Melamine).

If you want to stuff dampening in your box get poly-fill from the crafts dept at Wal Mart.. it's used to stuff pillows.
