I'm not sure if you'd be able to do this...But if it helps i'd buy about 5 of the 1712HS chassis, but without faceplates, not sure if that's something you'd be willing to do or not. Nothing wrong with the faceplates you have, they're really nice, but I have a bunch of acrylic that i'd like to use, and i'ts a bit easier for me to machine etc...

So like I said, not sure if that helps or hinders the order overall. Let me know either way.

Thanks!
Trsitan

Tristan,

Thanks for your input! I'm just really shocked by the lack of enthusiasm for his 1712HS chassis here. I thought there were quite a bunch of us who needed at least one! They are the cheapest chassis I know of with this level of build quality. The products off shore are at least twice as much! Even if the 1712HS were priced at $200 each I would buy them.

Anand.

Anand,

Agreed, I bought some of the 0610 chassis, and the build quality is excellent as is the price. On a whole other level than the par-metal et al chassis', and for not much more money.

Tristan

Yes I also don't understand this.

I know of only 2 (!!) corporations in the world making really great looking enclosures! That's DIY Enclosures and Hexateq (in alphabetical order ;-)).

I don't understand why people still build their own chassis which often look like a piece of junk for their precious high-end amps (Pass, Leach, Self, Curl, Borbely...).

But maybe it's just a matter of time and promotion?

All the best, I hope DIYEnclosures will continue and gather lots of success!

Hannes

This is the DIY1013HS, which comes with four 6" tall heatsinks. The windows on the side panels are for mounting power transistors or IC's directly to the heatsink.

Default Large heatsink

I am geting ready to start on a Pass F3 and I would be interested in a nice enclosure with a good size heatsink. I'm not sure what I need at this point but I assume it would be about the same as the F4. Maybe a group buy could be put together because I think there was pretty much interest in F3 boards and those people - and me - will need some place to put them when they are done

Michael is still in business last I checked. He just mailed me some nice 0908 enclosures with an AC input installed.

I'm just waiting on word for the heatsink 1712 versions

Best,
Anand.

I am definitely still in business and still providing the best quality service possible to each and every customer. I'm always getting awesome feedback and support! About the heatsink versions: I looked into doing larger and fancier sinks, but protos for them are around $2000. I would have made an order to restock everything, but I didn't get a good sign-up for the pre-orders. I'm starting to run low on the normal 1712, black chassis. There are still plenty of the silver version. Why is the silver chassis so unpopular? I personally think it is a more sophisticated color for the audio equip.

Default Heatsink chassis...

Michael,

I now realize there is a small group of us who would like the heatsink version.

I was wondering, if you can sell us the standard version, tell us exactly the size of the cutouts for the sides, we can do it ourselves. In addition, if you can tell us what size heatsinks or where you source those heatsinks we can purchase them and install it.

It shouldn't be too difficult . And whether I use the silver, gold or black panel at this point, I don't really mind. The base chassis is of such high quality, it makes for an excellent design. See my new gainclone here.

It worked out great

Anand
