Since we've received a few questions regarding the strength of our enclosures, we decided to do a little experiment. I've also posted this information here:

New semi-custom metal chassis manufacturer

The video and images below are of a small 6 x 10 inch enclosure we affectionately call "the brick," and Saer's Raptor. Thinking you could pretty much drive over the thing, we thought we'd see what would happen setting a wheel on it.

Landfall Systems, Simple Single weight test, Part 1 - YouTube

Lanfall Systems, Simple Single weight test, Part 2 - YouTube

Curb weight of the truck is about 6,000 lbs. Figure there's somewhere in the range of 1,500 lbs on the box.

The last two images are of both sides of the box after the experiment.

Notice: the batch level for black anodizing is over 60%. If you're interested in purchasing a black enclosure, now is a good time. We'll be taking enclosures over to the anodizing shop in the near future.

Notice update: We're taking a batch of enclosures to the shop on Monday for black anodizing. If you want a quick turn around on a black enclosure, now is a good time to order. Order by Friday night and we'll get it in to the anodize shop on Monday. Saturday orders MIGHT make it also.

Notice: Lone Star Audio Fest is this weekend! May 3rd, 4th and 5th. Anyone near the Dallas area should stop in and say hi. We'll be setup in one of the exhibitor rooms along with Apex Audio and CablePro. Just look for the red Landfall Systems sign.

Obviously, we'll be enjoying all the goodies at the show, so any orders received before Monday will be delayed a few days.

Hope to see y'all there.

Hi, it has been awhile on this thread but I was wondering if their is any update to the features available on these enclosures.

Also, Tubelab, where are you at with your prototype?

I have built 2 amps with them and they are fantastic. I think the only feature I could think of would be covers for the chassis or transformers

I had one last Hammond chassis that I just built an amp in and I remember why I hate them so much, cheep, expensive and always the wrong size.

They do have nice covers however

Well, we've been hesitant to say too much as we're still getting things sorted out. But, we now have 5.20" (3U) extrusion in stock and will soon be setup to make enclosures with it and will add it to the website. So, there's one more size to choose from.

Also, we've built a CNC router and have been making pretty nice holes with it. We don't yet have the details worked out for selling this service, but that will be coming in the not-too-distant future.

More details to come as we work things out.

Thanks for your interest!

Please don't make it too easy to make project chassis, their won't be anything else left for me to do when I get the box
