Answer: 
MDF is great for speakers but 1/2 thick is not recommended.
A speaker enclosure must be very dense to minimize enclosure vibrations.
1/2 thick MDF is likely to vibrate causing noise to emanate from the cabinet as well as the speaker.
Use minimum 3/4 MDF.

When I built my speakers, I used the slightly sturdier and thicker 3/4" MDF to get more stability out of it.

Answer: 
Hi Phil,
MDF may be used out doors for items such as window and door trim, as it is easier to work with than wood, except for cutting it.
However it's moisture resistance is low and must be well sealed and maintained or it will fail quickly.
For major outdoor projects, consider ceder, redwood or exterior grade plywood.
Mike,

Answer: 
The answer kind of depends on how much weight you want the shelves to hold without sagging. I would opt for 3/4" rather than 1/2" and support the shelving every 16" using "L" brackets or adjustable standards and brackets. Also, unsealed MDF is highly susceptible to moisture damage so before installation I would prime and paint the top, bottom and all edges.

In terms of engineered boards, I believe there are multiple types - OSB, MDF, Particle board, etc. I know what is OSB and I saw MDF at the store. So, I am curious if particle board is something different. Thanks in advance

Particle board, also known as particleboard and chipboard, is an engineered wood product manufactured from wood chips, sawmill shavings, or even sawdust, and a synthetic resin or other suitable binder, which is pressed and extruded. Oriented strand board (OSB), also known as flakeboard, waferboard, or chipboard, is similar but uses machined wood flakes offering more strength. All of Read More

Oriented strand board (OSB), also known as flakeboard, waferboard, or chipboard, is similar but uses machined wood flakes offering more strength. All of these are composite materials that belong to the spectrum of fiberboard products.
Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is generally denser than plywood. Read Less

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality MDF The difference in density between particle board, and HD MDF is about the same difference as there is between HD MDF and the MDF available in Europe. HD MDF is more like hardboard than real MDF. July 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Incorrect Dim's The 48 x 96 sheet is actually 48 x 97 1/4. Did not fit in my 4 x 8 trailer. March 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to work with Great product for fabricating cabinets and cabinet doors and much less expensive than plywood. MDF also takes primer and paint nicely. Be careful product doesn't get wet until it been painted. Also, during assembly use specially designed MDF screws (available at Home Depot) which don't require pre-drilling. July 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality product with no blemishes MDF needs to be well made and well cared for if it is going to hold together. Home Depot sells quality MDF that they have cared for well. December 4, 2012
