Default Enclosure Recommendations for 2x8

Fellows, I need enclosure recommendations for 2x8 for following scenarios

1) Pre-amp: Should be able to mount MiniDSP + 8 channel volume with remote

2) Controller: Should be able to mount MiniDSP + Computer + 8 channel analog volume

any information or pointers will be greatly appreciated.

TiA

I bought 1U enclosure from HIFI2000. I have bought several enclosures from them and they are high quality enclosures and easy to work with.

I intend to buy a 1U rack from modu/hifi2000 to fit my 2x8 into. I am still trying to decide what size I need. It will need to house the 2x8, the power supply, a minidigi and a ministreamer. Also, there has to be enough room on the back panel to accept all of the inputs/outputs. I want the unit to operate and look like a 'proper' hifi separate. It will effectively be the pre-amp in my fully active three way system. It all adds up to a lot of back panel real estate! Seems a shame to have to use a 2U case, as it will be drowned inside there!

Does anyone have any pictures of their 2x8 in a case yet?

Regards,

Jai

I just ordered a 2X8 and are thinking to the same as you are writing about(use it like a pre-amp in active 3 way with mini digi and mini streamer). I am also looking for a nice chassis, I think it needs to be 2U. Have you found any nice chassis yet?

Multipin XLR and speakon connectors to your rescue perhaps?

Here's what I'm doing with mine (still a work in progress)

For the outputs I'm using (2) RJ-45 connectors (one for Ch's 1,3,5,7) (the other for Ch's 2,4,6,8) Click the image to open in full size.

I plan on adding a miniStreamer for USB input, a couple extra analog inputs (adding an input selector)
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

It's not pretty, but I'm sure once I make a nice wooden face and nice knobs for the input selector and volume control it will look fine
