Default Why not mod a PC case for amps?

Found this one which looks like a nice candidate for a Class D amp case. Rip out the PSU stuff and use the rest?

It would look beautiful indeed, but the price on those things tend to be more than their worth..

Default good idea

I've thought about that many times, computer cases are generally cheaper than DIY cases anyway, if you are buying the whole case. Of course its cheaper to make your own but I don't know if I could make one that looks good.

Here are some big cases that are for servers. Now, with custom PC cases you can get some pretty good looking stuff if you delve into that area.

Thanks.

I checked with my SilverStone supplier locally and he could not get it. Time to go to the States again...

I've collected 4-5 old computers
for use as power supply cases.
They have everything allready,
just a matter of putting it to use.
And a 5 year old computer is allmost free

cheers
