What ballpark figure are we talking about Richard ? I plan to do a 7.2 channel Ncore setup (or a 20channel version if i decide to go with active filtering). I don't mind spending $100-150 per chassis (which I am not sure many DIYers are willing to do based on what I see in the gallery thread). If you can match or come close to your amp's chassis for under $150 sign me up for 7

I don't really care for the idea of solid block milled down. I rather like your amp's chassis and sleeve design. It hides most of the mounting hardware but it still easy to access.

I can imagine that when doing 7-20 channels the cost of the chassis weighs in...on the other hand, I would like to offer something which is usually out of reach for the diy community and matches the exceptional ncore modules.
Initial thoughts would suggest that 150 would be the bare minimum, 200 seems more likely. Again, volume is key to recoup the tooling and cad/cam costs.

Nice to have Richard (Hexateq) on board.
I'm sure many of the Ncore buyers would be interested in a sexy looking purpose-built enclosure.

Personally I'd prefer a curvy cube design, the best of which is IMHO the now-discontinued Hexacube line:

...but with equal depth and width dimensions.

I also like this HFX storage case:

..but I doubt they'd be willing to do a custom job for us.

I've also contacted VT4C concerning a customization of one of their cases. I will post more info when they get back to me.

Thanks for your comments. like Bruno suggested, good to see some input on the design. Curious to see if it's possible to get enough people on board to get this working. Reminds me of kickstarter, see Kickstarter which is a wonderful site which is about getting new products off the ground provided there's enough interest.

Count me in. I will hold off on ordering from THL Audio if I have the opportunity for a Hexateq enclosure.

Having said that, my interest is in an enclosure design for monoblock NCores. I could be wrong, but I would think a group buy or an economy of scale opportunity would be more likely for an appropriately designed monoblock enclosure vs. multiple NCores in the same chassis.

Richard, only speaking for myself, I am willing to pay a few hundred dollars for each enclosure assuming the design and quality is commensurate with the price. I love my UCD400s, but they are in a rather plain industrial looking enclosure. If a nice encllosure was available, if the NCores live up to their reputation, I would like to build them in an enclosure suitable to their acclaim.

richardkrol you guys manufacture the Meridian cases right?

What kinda money are we talking about here and do you guys have an NCore amp in the works?

You guys do extrusions as well as milled billets right? Must be talking at least $500 bucks for a billeted enclosure.

Those prices are fine for a stereo ncore amp, but for a monoblock that might be a bit much for my HT But i will wait and see, I aint ruling anything out yet. I scratch built my last amp with a drill press and hand tools.... NEVER AGAIN

It turns out great but totally not worth my time. This might make be a bit of a gear slut but I really think a nice chassis is an important part of DIY. I hate seeing so many guys put a ton of effort into their DIY efforts only to put the thing in a hammond case.

150,- for a Hexateq quality enclosure would be very nice. So for a surround setup his would 5 times 150 = 750,- Today I'm going to listen to Piega speakers and an Hexateq enclosure would match nicely.

Check the gallery to see what I have in mind.

It is 8" x 6" x 3.2". I'm not sure about price but will find out soon. Check out this gallery to see the parts list. Ncore Mono - My Photo Gallery

PS I goofed the measurements in earlier threads
