Those big plastic feet are for heavier things like the power amp chassis.

Also, they mount to the chassis in a way that a Galaxy's construction can't accommodate because of the aluminum extrusions - they screw into the bent metal frame rails that the heatsinks are attached to in a Dissipante, for example.

Feet problem solved.

I see the back can't go on until the top is on. Am I doing this right?

In addition, there were no sheet metal screws to hold the covers on, so I guess I'll pick some up at the hardware store and paint them black (Rolling Stones reference unintentional).
Thanks for writing into the helpdesk email ticket system yesterday. As I said in my reply to your helpdesk ticket yesterday:

1. Yes feet are included and those bumpers are the feet. Hifi2000 has been selling the Galaxy chassis for decades without any major changes and it has always been this way. A while back they upgraded the feet (bumpers) from a harder material to the current hemispherical ones which IMO have a softer more squishy feel and I prefer them. They are both "small feet" however, and I will certainly document this better in the future.

The rub is that to stick the Pesante Dissipante feet on 90% of Galaxy chassis (ie: small ones) would be overkill and they would be grossly oversized. I think the issue here is you've bought one of the largest Galaxy chassis and for that size it falls in between the use cases for the two different kinds of feet.

2. When you asked about the missing screws, I requested you send a photo of what you got so we could ascertain if something was (a) missing in which case we would would send an immediately replacement for the missing screws, or (b) this was a case of the included assembly manual not being super intuitive.

From the conversation here it looks like it was the latter in this case. I do apologize that we don't have assembly videos of each chassis yet, this is something I would like to do in 2019 for sure, and it would in this case have both shown the style of feet included as well as shown how to assemble the chassis. You're not the first person to be confused about how to assemble a Hifi2000 case.

Thank you for your past and present patronage of the store and I'm sorry about the lack of good instructional medium in this case (pun intended).

Hi Jason, thanks for the response. I had some pads on hand that make good feet, and I understand now how the case goes together (different from the Pesante I bought recently. I jumped the gun on my post.

Please see attached for some models I made of the Dissipante 2U, 3U and 4U 400mm chassis with a 10mm faceplate and 3mm Al panels. These were created from a 2U chassis I purchased and was able to use to identify differences between the dwg files available on diyaudio store. I haven't validated the 3U and 4U models against the physical hardware. It would be great to learn about any errors in the models.

Model in Onshape: Onshape

The step file zips are slightly to large to post here, instead are links to google drive.

2U Step File: 2U.zip - Google Drive

3U Step File: 3U.zip - Google Drive

4U Step File: 4U.zip - Google Drive

Hopefully useful for somebody else! Happy New Year.

I like the Deluxe Amp Chassis offering, but would prefer a blank back panel since I am using Powercons and speakons. So the only way to get the deluxe chassis with blank back panel is to get the Deluxe chassis and a blank back panel or buy each of the parts separately 4U dissipante chasis, UMS heat sinks substitution, and baseplate (am I missing something)?

There's no way to order that directly through the website, but if you email contact@diyaudiostore.com we can make you up a custom invoice for this. A choose-your-own-adventureŽ style chassis configurator is on the cards for the future, and in the meantime we could add a substitution for this option, but it's not a common request so it hasn't been done to date.

What are the size and position of the row of holes in the default aluminum cover of the 350 mm deep Slimline chassis? If you can show a drawing, it would be super helpful; otherwise, I'm mostly interested in the distance marked by the question mark in the attached drawing.

Thank you!

Attachment 739648

There's about 29,8 - 29,9 cm from the end of the vent holes to the edge of the cover
