Default before i drill Simple SE Chassis Seperation of input and output

so this is a 12x10x2 chassis

(board is inverted layout upside down for visualization)

was wondering how influence the motor run cap would have on input noise assuming i run the input wiring down the right side of the chassis.

should i swap the cap with the opts? the simple se layout says to keep the outputs and the input seperated and this would put them pretty close together.

or should i redo the layout all together? thanks for the input.

The only way I can see it fitting reasonably would be:

Rotate output transformers 90 degrees. Move them to the top right as shown in your picture.

Rotate power transformer 90 degrees. Move to top left corner as shown on photo.

Rotate choke 90 degrees and leave in place.

Place cap between choke and power transformer.

Hey, look at my avatar, kinda like that ;-)

Or at the very least put the cap in the upper, left.

It is kind of hard to see but here is how my Simple SE was positioned. Like chrish said rotate the OPT and rotate the power tranny and move the cap over.

Doing it this way I found I didn't have to use much wire at all.

If I were building on that chassis, I'd probably do a layout similar to what Nic suggests. I might put the PT in the back and the can cap near the front, but I suppose it doesn't make much difference either way.

Here was the layout I was pondering before ditching the 12x10 and building my own chassis:

I'm curious here... What's that eye on the left of the volume control?

Oh it was the power switch. Not really sure why I thought mounting it like that would be a good idea but that is what I did lol. One of those late night ideas that turn out how I thought it would. Oh well I didn't feel like redoing the front panel because of the switch.

I like them wide open spaces, 10x17x5. Save that little condo for a phono stage or something.
