this is NOT the amp rack i built for that most recent video, this is a new one. Very similar though.

Only the face of this box will be seen and ONLY when he takes the screen off. But i still wanted it to look right if he does.

High gloss black then a stencil, then a semi (low) gloss grey to match the plastic panels painted over the top. Once the decal is removed you are left with this.

Time for the amp rack. Completely fan cooled and i will of course use an SMD TM-1 http://www.wccaraudio.com/smd-fahrenheit-temperature-meter-w-programable-fan-output-smd-tm1f.html to automate them.


After beveling the edges of this piece of acrylic, i sanded the edges down from 100 all the way to a wet sand @ 600. I planned on doing a flame polish but forgot....i still can any time and probably will once i run the wires. But it looks good the way it is too :D

Of course it needs a logo. We did the RF logo on the box so i didn't wanna do another one on the rack....perfect spot for the SMD logo.

4 screws with a nice allen head on them look as good as they work.

Seats drop down with TONS of room to spare. The fans will ensure the chamber gets plenty of air.

to all those people who say "i can't win system of the month because i don't have 8 18" woofers and 40,000 watts"....let me ask you this, if this build was by ANYONE else besides me (because i can't enter) would it be a contender? i say this because me personally, if i saw someone do this build i would vote for it :D . A bass amp, a mids/highs amp, 2 P3 12's and some separates...not very expensive but it is what you do with it.

You don't need the biggest and baddest to have a solid, clean, safe, reliable, great sounding, great looking system. Just gotta put your heart into it and have some decent practice behind you.

That's why they don't deliver.

Yer ass better go sit along the side of the road and wait.

You can't expect them to travel up some dirt road in a hick / back woods town. Thats how horror movies start :D

I explain things very simply and use analogies in terms of Pickles, and grape drink, pool noodles and jackhammers...if you can't put 2 and 2 together there man, There simply is not much more I can do.
