Default Source to find Amplifier cabinets

Were to find good cheap amplifier cabinets?

Do not want to spend a lot of time making an amateur looking cabinet.Simply do not have the interest in this,but in building
the amp itself.

Hi,
what would you like to spend?
Good looking and nicely machined cabinets are generally not cheap.
You can get a nice 19"-2HE cabinet with integrated heatsinks for about 140€. Have a look here.

This just an example.
It´s definitely no the cheapest cause of the integrated heatsinks.

Cheers
Jens

PS.: Do a search here in the forums. There have been many more suggestions about that topic.

Mine is here in post6.
I can do more photographs if you´re interested.
Monacor sells exactly the same 19"-case and I think they´re all produced by fischer-elektronik in germany.

Cheers
Jens

I found something a little different recently (although I don't think you can buy one qite yet, and I wouldn't say that it was cheep) and that should be enough to cool even the bigest alphes. It is in fact supposed to be a totaly passive computer case (dissipating heat from CPU, GPU, PSU and optionaly the northbridge) so it has quite big heatsinks on it. The only small problem I can see with using a couple of these for some moster mono-blocks is that the are likely to cost around 700 euros, each. Ouch

I've always like enclosures with integrated heat sinks, but they are usually not cheap.
