I asked modushop for this type of chassis several years ago, but they didnt have them. I made my own.

Love this! Please please for wide front panel! I don't care if it's the same width even without heatsinks, I'd prefer the better look for all.

If we do a Deluxe Back Panel, can we can an option for DC-in/out instead of standard IEC C14 connector? So that you could get a panel designed for an external PSU scenario. I suppose ideally there would be one design for an "all in one" box, one design for a "PSU only" box (DC out with no binding posts) and one for "amp only" (DC in + binding posts). Is there a way to consolidate those to minimize SKUs? Maybe punch-out panels?
 
No, this is an entirely new product which uses different 3mm thick aluminium panels. You can see them here https://www.diyaudio.com/community/attachments/img_20220111_122455-jpg.1014099/
That's a shame, I like the extrusions, plus with all those exposed screwheads, including between the heatsink fins, I'll be less inclined to purchase - call me particular but I like to pay attention to the look of my projects. Still, I can always custom build using the old heatsink mounting arrangements and the extrusions.
 
I'm not getting meaning of your question?

side panel is regular 3mm Al sheet, same material as usual top, bottom and back 3mm Al panels

what can be done different - pretty much just countersunk holes, or not countersunk holes

Gianluca certainly meant with "entirely new product" that format of that plate is new one, not borrowed from any other already existing box

"entirely new product" means nothing else than "new item" in their parts list

now, regarding screw heads between fins - that's matter of one's aesthetic sense/taste; can't argue with that

for me - nothing ugly there; as long everything is perfectly aligned and not too crowded, there is mechanical beauty
 
Hi Gianluca,
do you have plans for one-piece heatsinks?

Not at the moment as our supplier does not sell them

Is it possible for the non heatsink side to have countersunk screws? And are the heatsinks mounted from the inside or are they tapped from the outside for mounting?

Thank you!

Anand.

The heatsinks are mounted from the outside, we have made some holes between the fins. The reason we are doing this is because some users have asked about the possibility to easily install and remove the heatsinks without having to remove the top cover and the brackets first. The inner cage also allows us to use countersunk screws for both covers (something which has been very requested for other chassis with heatsinks as well!) and if this project goes well we may use it for Dissipante series too to avoid problems with brackets when mounting everything.

That's a shame, I like the extrusions, plus with all those exposed screwheads, including between the heatsink fins, I'll be less inclined to purchase - call me particular but I like to pay attention to the look of my projects. Still, I can always custom build using the old heatsink mounting arrangements and the extrusions.

We all have preferences, hard to please everybody :D But I am always happy to hear everyone's comments :)

That's correct, the only parts which have been used for other chassis are the heatsinks. Everything else has been made from scratch
