    I really don't know...

    I just realized I made a typ-o.. OSB (not OBS)

    There's a couple threads, mentioning it, here:

    Ampeg Vietnamese Cabs - Run away!

    if you read through that, then, on the next page, someone directs you to an earlier thread, where they talk about wafer board & an ex-SLM guy defends it, saying it's OSB, not wafer board...

    That's like saying MDF isn't particle board...

    I have a lot of respect for Jerrold, but, that one is a head scratcher... :facepalm:

    I ended up going with the 1912 dimension and construction, in the end I thought it sounded best, closed back with a couple port holes in the front. Here's a few shots:
