You're right, I think! You'll just need to fabricate your own internal mounting brackets and feet and source all the connecting fasteners.

ah, I thought you were suggesting to buy a box as spare parts
in any 'case' (), the really big 5U 400mm looks optimal for balanced stereo, or 4 channels
for other the smaller 300mm might be optimal, since its not with split heatsinks

well, right now Im constructing a box from an old scrapped tuner
a lot of effort, and every time I work on it Im thinking how much more easy it would be to buy a premade box where every screw fits nice and smooth

Default Steel Rack Rail Needed

Jason,

On all of these new rackmount chassis, there are 4 pre-drilled and bent steel rails that secure the heatsinks to the front and back panels. I would like to buy just the rails. I need them for another project. I've seen these same rails in numerous other rack cabinets in other forums.

Who makes them? Where can I purchase them?

-Bill

Do you have a list of the nuts, bolts and screws included, and which ones to go where?

Thx

Hi There!

Wondering if the specified height of the 2U chassis is the internal height, or full height of the amp? If the latter, what is the available internal height?

thanks!

Default Routing front plate

I want to install some controls on the front plate of a 2U quasi-heatsink chassis (headphone amp), but 10 mm is longer than threads on most controls. How would one route the aluminum so I can bolt the control on the front?

Someone else might have a more clever solution, but I think you'll need to use a mill or a drill press with a flat mill bit, like a forstner bit used in woodworking.
Either way, you'll need to securely clamp down the plate and set the depth, working slowly and checking depth as you go.

Good timing - I face the same issue. For the short term I fit some acrylic panels, but I was planning to use a Dremel with a router attachment (to control depth at say 5mm) and a suitable flat-bottom carbide bit. Drill press is not an option for me.
