I finalized my layout today. Here are the basics:

• L 10” X W9” X H3.47”
• Bulgin Push Button front Switch
• Light pipe centered on front
• 2 Neutrik inputs
• 1 Set of Speakons
• 1 Set of Propeller Binding posts
• 1 IEC with integrated switch/fuse/filter
• No Logo
• Flexible amp module layout. 1 amp module can be mounted in 3 locations
• Natural Anodized Finish

The size of the first run is 10 units. I will announce pricing soon and expected delivery is 4-8 weeks.

Thanks for everyone’s input and help,
Robert

in my experience, there's no such thing as thumb rules for speaker positioning.
but as you said, this is very off-topic...

That would be an option but my speakers are not DIY and I'm not comfortable messing them up..
For now I'll have to settle for the next best thing.

Next to the speaker or behind it doesn't make much of a difference (5cm of extra speaker cable perhaps). And in any case it still has to look good, just as the rear side of our DIY components look good even though no one sees them.

TheShaman, I see your point. No need to violate a perfectly working not DIY speaker

Regarding the extra 5cm cable I too don´t think that you have much to fear. 5m on the other hand probably would make quite a difference, but not necessarily to the worse ;-) - at least IMHO and experience...

Deciding if the NC 400 is overkill ,but i wish not , so here is my humble question for someone who has more knowledge than i.
I'm driving 2, 16 Ohms 25W RMS max Widebanders.,
The NC core can drive 400W into 4 Ohms, 200w into 8 ohms ,
therefore the NC 400 would deliver 100W at 16 ohms ? .
regards
rol

reo, yes expect 100W RMS 16ohm. And yes headroom IS nice. If the speakers are resolving they will benefit greatly from a good amp. That you at the same time get more power than you need is much better than the opposite which some "in here" with power hungry speakers fear.

Not lukewarm as far as I am concerned. I think your case looks fantastic, and if your manage to do it for a cost close to your estimation, I truly believe it would be a tremendous achievement. I'm not sure everybody realizes that a case milled from a solid block of aluminum like that is what make some high-end equipment worth the price of a little ferrari.

Many DIYers have lost their lives impaled with flying drill bits trying to achieve something looking half that good.
come on!
If it happens, count me in.

Richard,

May be you can make it more generic, so others can fit in ucd or even other class A/b modules in your chassis. This will increase your sales number. But in that case, it is better not to engrave ncore on the front!

I will - as soon as I move to a bigger place and Hypex release their HiEnd DSP!
Hence the search for a modular case design for my Ncores!

I do know a few ppl who would wish to have as nice a loudspeaker as my ATCs so I won't have trouble selling them for a good price.
But I'm sticking with ATC drivers, that's for sure!
