So thanks to Frank the Carpenter we have a new line of protective boxes for your apogee AD1000 and AD500e.

Here's the box todd e sent me, original design
top view...nice sticker todd

bottom view...notice the set screws for holding the unit in place

inside view...the apogee slides in the slot face first until it bottoms out, if the apogee was in the box you would nbe looking at the xlr's 15pin etc

top view...if you look closely, the slots end about an inch or so from the top so the knobs are recessed in the box for protection
i'm having problems with this pic...


pics of new box to come

Here's the new box for that ass. Well vented for cooling, and strong. When i went to get it I layed i on the ground and stood on it from all sides 8)

front view...you can see where the slots end on both sides, the faceplate of the apogee touches the sides, and the knobs are recessed below flush with the top

side/top view, frank added some slots in the sides for better cooling

bottom view, holes will have to be drilled to hold unit in place 2 for ad500 1 for ad1k, the units have different mounting holes, you can really see how thick it is in this one

botom view..same as last bottom view, you would be looking at xlr's, 15 pin, etc


thats about all i have right now, jeff might be able to throw some pics of one with an ad500e in it...he has the prototype

i  am DEFINITELY interested in one.  One question...is the rear of the box recessed like the front?  More specifically, is the 15 pin connector recessed in the box the way the knobs will be in the front? 

Looks amazing!!!  +T

yeah, there's about 5-6 inchs(guestimate) from the bottom of the apogee to the bottom of the box, so plenty of room ;D


PRICE..... I spoke with Frank alot about this and keeping this thing affordable. With the lumber and the labor, he said it takes him about 3 hours to make one they will be $35.00 plus shipping.

Jeff has the prototype, Frank is making 4 more right now... Todd has put an order in for 2, there will be 2 left from the first run. Heath says definately in, so there will be 1 left from this order... PM me if you want it. once he gets finished with these, I'll get a number, if any, of how many more he needs to make.

I talked to Frank last nite and his router took a dive yesterday, he will have it back monday, so it looks like next week beore he spits anymore out.

Yeah, I know - I was just taking a jab at the fact that people feel a need to run the Apogee units in a protective box (since the physical design is so poor).   :o

It's the 2 12v that suck  :P

Yeah, that's for sure!  12Vs suck - big mothers.

and I'm gonna maintain that even though the box makes life easier, these boxes make the unit run HOTTER than if you just made room in the bag for the vents. even if you vent the box, you're confining much of the unit in wood. the hottest adk's i've ever felt have been in boxes. rakow got a visible blister at panic 01 berkeley. waayy better off imo putting vented metal struts on the screwholes, so you can run the unit vertically while taking pressure off the cables. my 2 cents from owning 4 of these bitches.

nice work bush.  i am really excited to get my hands on the boxes!  The side vents are a plus too.
All of the 'other' points are valid, but i just wanted to get a box, so I have the same protection for the ad500 as the ad1000.  thanks again for making the wish, become a reality.  major +T to ts.com for everyone's help.

..oh yeah, why is everyone hating so much?  :P

not hating. I've just had a lot of experience with these things, and my opinion is that they run hotter when enclosed in wood, no matter whether you vent them or fan them. You're speeding them toward their death by boxing them up. Two struts on each side to protect the output/inputs and 15 pin, that's all you need.
