Apogee owners...Protective box
« on: May 21, 2004, 11:34:37 AM »
Just feeling around for some interest here, I've contracted a biulder and he wants to know preliminary numbers on how many boxes we might need so he can get a accurate quote on prices.

This will be made from another box design...todd e or tad...dont know which. Probably todd's cuz I hear his is a little stealthier if thats possible :P

for the 500 and 1000? or mme? is it worth screwing with for the old units, and why would you need one for the mme? the only issue with the mme is sitting on cables, and I think a nice foam backing would solve that one. But I've run mine in a bag for two years, no issues.

Wood is heavy my friend. I would consider using lighter materials. Consider composites......they very light and tough as hell (although higher in cost).

Formed AL housing with a rubberized coating would also be a good choice. AL is a cheap, durable material, easy to form and can be coated with various protective coatings.

anyone who's ever made one for their ad500 / ad1000 will tell you that lumber is not sold in "exactly" the dimensions listed  ;)

1" X 6" per home depot = .75" X 5.25" per reality = the exact dimensions needed (what are the odds of that ?)

let's pick some nice wood, sturdy enough to be stood on by a big tapir! and light enough to offset the 12v weight.  a bird's eye maple or a nice heartwood cherry would rock.

I was thinking cedar...anything to help the smell in your average crowd :P

A coupla questions...

Weren't these things made of wood to dissapate heat as well as create an open air space around the unit?

Is the minime the same size as the ad500/1000?

Im pretty sure the wood is more for protection and keeping the 15 pin and XLRs from getting squished when running the ad-1000/500 upright.

Also Im pretty sure the mini-me is quite a bit smaller than the ad-1000/500.

Make sure you drill plenty of holes in the wood when youre finished. After I made my box, I bought a 1" drill bit from Home Depot for super cheap and put about 10-15 holes all over it for ventilation.

update...for those who are interested

The box is on its way...
We will be getting an inital price sometime mid next week.

This will be primarily for the ad500/1000 units.
