And back. The round recess (it is a recycled piece of nice brushed aluminum, will receive the power input connector, round also, for a perfect match.

Finally, the preamp and supply enclosures, matched look. The preamp LCD is blue, and the supply will have a matched color blue led. Not bad I may complete the enclosures with a piece of dark glass on top of each. This is why there is a recess on the top.

Thanks for the great pics of your enclosure. It looks fantastic. I am thinking about a wood/alu hybrid and this is great inspiration. I'm not quite up to that level of finish but it gives a really good idea of what's possible given the right tools and skills. Keep 'em coming.

I was curious why you said the original Surplus Sales HS501's did not fit. I don't have my boards yet, but I dry fitted the 501's on a paper template and all seemed well except for a 1/4" overhang in width. Was it because of the Auricaps thickness?

Algar_emi,

My bad, as I see this was actually "divsw" and "wirewiggler" that were referring to this.

Guys, can you clarify on the fit of those 501's? I thought I had a winner there based on my template.

Tom
