              I use three of the cases shown below for my PA cabling. My system is a small club system (Yamaha SW115 subs, Yamaha Club V 15" mains) - that gets transported in my Ford E150 cargo van. I/We move it ourselves - so we can exercise reasonable care. The cases are 50-60 pounds when loaded, have a telescoping handle and wheels for easy movement and best of all cost less than $30 each.

              I use one for all my keyboard stuff....one (with the tool tray removed) for speaker cabling ... and one for miscellaneous PA stuff.

              They've been in service with me for more than 3 years - and I couldn't be happier in terms of price/performance.

                That seems to be perfect for what I need.

                    I think I saw this at Home Depot or Lowes? around 25 bucks?

                      I bought mine from Lowes .... $29 and some change.

                      They certainly won't hold up to the rigors of touring with a honest to gosh touring act. But for a "DIY" weekend act - the smaller case size and distributed weight are much easier to deal with than a monolithic monster road case weighing hundreds of pounds. If you can give them reasonable care (i.e., not throw or drop them - and ensure they get packed on the top of stuff and not at the bottom of the pile) - they'll serve you well - and at a faction of the cost of a "real" road case.

                        I saw a black plastic "toolbox" for a pickup truck bed at Wal Mart for about twenty bucks that I thought would be great!

                          Home stores like Lowes sell lots of low cost storage solutions. One example is this:

                            i coil the cables all nice and tidy, wrap a velcro strap around each one, and toss them in a duffle bag. i also have a smaller bag for my misc guitar gear like extra strings, multi-tool, capos, etc, and a large bag for speaker and mic stands. the smaller two actually fit in the big bag, so i can carry everything in one bag. its heavy, but i dont have to tote a bunch of bags back and forth. ive just started doing it this way, so time will tell if it works well.

                              Has someone got a tutorial on winding cables properly for storage/transport?
