Thats a really hot idea! Reminds me of the rockford fosgate amps that have a cover to conceal the wiring. I will work on this.
I have a suggestion.
I didnt get a chance to read all of this thread, so it may have been said already.
I think you should include a cover for the side of the case where everything hooks up. That would create a suuupperr clean install. I real quickly used paint to show you what i mean. It would consist of the side, top and bottom edges, and a top or it could be covered by the lid as well....
I see this design a lot with amplifiers.
then the wires can be bunched and evacuated out the bottom. I also think the power wires would go through the left side and out the bottom of the added portion.
I was looking at fabbing my own case out of aluminum and was wondering if your brake was equipped specially to bend all four sides of the box up. I'm using a smaller brake like this one. I don't see how, once two of the opposing sides are bent, how to bend the other two. Thanks for any help.
That's what I figured. Thanks.
I just sent you an e-mail but forgot to ask what it would be to make a full size ATX case, I can send the designs over if you'd like. I might just end up using a fried amp, gut it and build everything inside it... we'll see.
I am really late to the party for this one. Sorry about opening up a long dead thread but, blk02si, you still able to make these cases. I've determined I don't have the skillz to build my own.
A way around the back panel is to just cut a slot for the MB back plate, that way it doesn't matter what MB you have. Just a thought. Any way if you're still able to make these I'd like to purchase one.
It's all good, tjbrewster. I am in fact still making computer cases and chassis, in fact I am fabricating and assembling a system for mp3car member stonestatue right now. I build each one custom now since everybody uses different hardware and has different idea about what they want. Do you have a design already?
blk02si, thanks for the quick reply. Glad this isn't dead. I kinda answered my own questions with a little research. I found your website. I'm not sure at this point how I want to proceed. I have a 2004 Ford F250 that is considered 2 din, but it is slightly different in size than common 2 din (I think).
Do you have any photos of the 2 din enclosure? If it's half as nice and professional looking as the other this case, and will fit my dash, I'm very intrested.
