    Re: OSB box

    OSB = Oriented Strand Board. Wafer board is the old name for it. Used in construction in place of plywood. I would be reluctant to use OSB for a sub box unless you make it at least 3-4 layers thick. Most panels of osb I have used have lots of voids in them, and the wafers are not really well bonded together. I would suggest spending 30$ on a sheet of MDF, it is a much better material for a sub enclosure. JMO
