What is mdo?

I've been searching for a suitable product for building a certain kind of box enclosure. (car audio speakers) Frequently, box builders use 3/4" medium density fibreboard. Another product that has been mentioned is mdo. What is mdo??

Most of the cheaper boxes are made with OSB - Oriented strand board.
MDF would make a nice heavy speaker box.

MDO (medium density overlay) is plywood with a paper backing. Sometimes the paper is satiurated with an plastic resin.
Most MDO is plain ppaper backed - ready for painting.
