Recommended box for exterior fixture


What metal box would you suggest for use on an exterior wall made of OSB sheathing with dutch vinyl siding? Around here I mainly see 4" diameter 1/2" depth pan boxes being used but that limits your options. Curious to hear other opinions.

There are light blocks made by a company named Arlington that come with the box built right in to the block.

These light blocks also come equipped with different size laps to properly fit your vynil siding for a custom look.

Here is a link to the Arlington fittings - they sell them at home depot, but not Lowes. They also probably sell them at an electrical supply.
