  • Rack Cases with Rear Support Brackets on Deeper Amps

    P1010386.JPGIs this a must have, or, can i get by with just mounting them to the front rails, anyone have some insight to this?

    I will be putting two Crown xti 6000's and two Crown xit 4000's in this rack http://www.audiopile.net/products/Cases/CU\_Series\_Roadracks/CUDJ-P-22/CRUDJ-P-22\_series\_cutsheet.shtml  the 6000's are deeper than the 4000's and the rack is the 16 space one.

    Put the bigger ones on the bottom.

    You might be tempted to leave space between them. Don't.

    The most common use for the back rails is to install a rack of fans.

      Or install some rear support brackets.

      BTW:  When in-doubt, I install rear support brackets.

      Also BTW:  I generally put the 2 locking casters on the front of my cases.

    In general, you do NOT need to use external fans for almost all modern front to back ventilated amps that have internal fans. In fact, external fans installed against the design flow can CAUSE big problems.

    Rear rail are good for amp support, I/O panel and filler panel installation

      You can use good quality plastic zip ties for the time being until your brackets show up; if you haven't used them before, you will be surprised how much rear support they provide
