  • 1U rack ears?

    Hey, I just picked up a 1U UPS real cheap (SC450RM1U $50 unused ) but it didn't come with the rack ears . Anybody know of a cheap place to buy some or have a pair they are willing to part with? I don't mind having to drill holes to match the side of the UPS . I want to use this to power my digital mixer and loudspeaker management system - damn heavy though . Thanks!

    Rack ears are not "standard", they are generally model specific.

    1U UPS MUST have rear supports, they are not generally used on the road as shipped, but installed in fixed data processing racks.

      If put on the bottom of the rack I'd not worry about it too much unless in a vehicle with poor suspension (AKA trailer or truck). I usually lay the racks on their backs so the heavy stuff is hanging straight down anyways . And yah, I'll probably support the back with some ugly angle iron somehow somewhen but would like some decent looking rack ears for the front . BTW my new Gator GR-6S FOH rack is gonna have:
      1U DCX2496 Behringer DSP
      1U MaxxBass107 Waves Bass Processor
      1U FBX2020+ Sabine Feedback Exterminator
      1U FBX2020+ Sabine Feedback Exterminator
      1U AD8000 Behringer ADAT 8 Channel I/O
      1U SC450RM1U UPS
