By any chance is your rack a Slim5?

I envy the patience for detail that so many of you have!

I am far from OCD but seeing nicely routed and organized wires gives me such a sense of satisfaction.

Ah, there's nothing like a good, clean, organized wiring install.....! I'm also big on keeping wires as invisible as possible. Not sure why exactly, maybe I'm OCD?

I am in the early stages of mine. Wires everywhere. This weekend I plan to finish up my electrical work. Get all of the outlets, lights, and switches in.

When I went to do my work my buddy who does this for a living said I'm not helping unless you buy a proper equipment rack.

Grumbled at the time but every time I change something up in there I am thankful. Paid for itself time over in my personal time saved. Likely reduced my equipment costs with better passive cooling and reduced mean time to failure .

It also takes up less room in a small apartment than having boxes under tvs and speaker things on shelves in every room.

At the moment just roughly installed the AV components. I think I might swap out the Rotel 1075 power amp with another Rotel 1585. It will look neater and I like the idea of all the speakers running the same equipment. I think the gain isnt the same and may be an issue. But not looking forward to moving shelves with 38kg amps again. Err

One tip is to make sure you mark your speaker wires correctly. I used tape and some of it came off thanks to the builders 👹😭
Its a painful process stripping wires and fitting them, Im not a fan of it lol. And im running Atmos speaker setup and have prewiring allowing for 9.4.6 so plenty of patience is required. But initially 5.2.4 atmos. I lucked out with my rack. Its a 42ru and i got it second with 4 full shelves and 2 12" deep shelves and 2 cat6 24port switch panels and a multi power bar. Only thing is the rack needed a fair clean but it came up well and I also had to change the wheels to a smaller height to allow it to fit.

Still got plenty to do😭

Just picked up a VMP EREN-27 Rack Enclosure from Security Product.com. This was under 600 bucks shipped. After looking for hours I came across this. Seems to be built every good as the top end units out there. In fact I've seen the price for this one upward a grand. Nice thing it comes with 5 shelves and blanks plus built in fans. I'll report back once I get it and all set up. Think this was the deal of the year so far.

He is my rack, the metal surround and door that fits into the wall was custom made by some sheet metal workers where I work.
It was powder coated matte black with a ripple finish. I am always surprised at how well they take my crappy hand drawn drawings and turn it into perfection. I am still waiting on tinted glass to go with the door. Access to the back will be via hidden door.

@ SMHarman I have that exact tool, has made my life easier.

Such a great idea using the peg board! I don't have the option the way I'm laid out. But if I rebuild, its jsut a great idea. Especially for multi room set ups. That is just a 3d working map system. Props to you!

THX for the props.

The board is hinged so that I can swing it open to access the back side too. It makes identifying speaker runs SO MUCH EASIER! Plus, because it's peg board, you can lay everything out just as it sits in the room (as I did) and still add and change around.

The very bottom is for the eight 18" sub drivers. So, EACH driver terminates at the board. This allows me to wire them ANY WAY I CHOOSE. Same with the transducers both on the platforms and in the seats.

Hey that is as great idea. I know these pics a re a bit aged now. But do you happen to have full size images of the rear like these ones. I am snoopy. I like the setup and your choice of layout. I just want t see more on what is what and how you have things mounted. Or similar.

Hey, I see you have your main drivers at the top. What kinda weight are they, and What kind of shelves are those. I see they go corner to corner. I had to pick up a 80lb rated and vented shelf for my avr and it cost me around $77 CAN. Which seems outrageous really for a shelf. but sometimes my mind is cheap. But mine is a 4U and only mounts to the front. It wors for me. But I like that one you are using. You get more shelf surface and more weight allowance I presume.

how are you finding the (are those crown? or qsc? hard to tell) power amps. I have been looking at going the pro way. Using all digital, so no moving fans ect. But I have heard they can be harsh in sound quality. do you run through an EQ at all or just as is and it wokrs great for you? And which mini rack is that?

Hey, Thanks. They may have been bigger the first time posted actually. I forget my pc is bigger then a few others out there. And "I'm always trying to make images bigger.
Haha but thats okay. I'm just comparing notes and basically building myself a shopping list of all the things I "need" that I may not have or do some swap outs. You have a great setup with great ideas, and its been a while since I have done any major playing in my rack. So eyeballing up everyone elses is my way of sorting through what I "need" to replace!

The wife hates when I'm on AVS. Shopping happens.

MY pc integrated into my rack via Cat6, optical, HDMI and composite. Cause one way isn't enough alone

What area are you located in? Many of us have found nice racks for under $150 on craigslist.

The Top 3 shelves came with the rack. The rack is 80cm deep and the shelves bolt to the front and back so even weight distribution. Top amp is 36kg, next is 28kg i believe and not sure about the Yamaha 3050 avr. A lot of weight but the rack is solid and I trust it.

I got mine for $300 Aussie Dollars with some extra bits like shelves etc. To buy it all I got new would be around $1,800 AUD.
As long as the fron looks half respectable it will be fine. No one cares about how the rack looks its the sound and picture. The rack is a good chance to save money by going with a used unit. I guess craigslist is like Gumtree in Australia. Everyday just search "Rack" & "Server Rack" you might get lucky and someone will give one away for free just to move it quick. Many companys that go belly up sell stuff like this cheap to move it quick. Also the best thing is it comes already assembled! Just strip it back and clean it up and your ready. Watch your depth but. I found 1m deep too deep after seeing one in person. I thought 60cm deep was for me but when a 80cm deep popped up in my suburb I went with it and was happy I did because It gives me a bit more room in the back to have cables and if I ever put the panels back on then I have some breathing room for the equipment. But many dont realize how hot a rack can get amd thats why I have the panels off. Im borderline needing a vent fan for the cupboard I just have enough air gaps in the doors and space in the cupboard.

Mulit reply you could call this.
@hateless chimp- That is alot of weight. Especially near the top. But yes, that is the advantage of racks. The durability is amazing.
@GATABITES
I'm up in Canada. But mine I got it for the price of Free! It was a friend of the family's sons, but originally an RCMP surveillance rack.(from what I understood) had some pretty sweet vintage equipment in it when I first saw it. Originally It was tan on the outside panels. But that was the first thing I changed. Ran out grabbed some semi-gloss black metal paint and painted the whole thing. Then began to fill it. It's had 4 configurations over the years with me and going on 5 now, Similar set ups but equipment changes over the years depending on what house I was in at the time and age I was living through. And is going through another as we speak which is why I'm only showing the top half. AVR work is being done below. Some guys have paid hundreds or thousands. I know it. But, get a rack, even a basic one and make it yours. Make it work for you in your set up. Mine is not as fancy or pretty as others, but I'm proud of it. Its a hobby, Just be prepared to spend more, Open/empty spaces just are no good for looking at!

Passed on this last year, but it was tempting... Came up right after I grabbed a MA Slim5 via EBay, for $99 shipped.

A coat of paint on that rack and some WY84U DIY face plates, and that might be a $100 all in, av rack, for a little bit of effort....

Has anyone here screwed Rack Rails directly into properly spaced studs and mounted equipment that way? Would save me a ton of money.

That could work you would have to Pre drill holes threw the side of the rack shelfs then screw right into the 2/4. Paint the 2/4's black and trim the front out. Menards and Home Depot sells vinyl for counter tops you could even glue that to the side and paint it black for a nice smooth look.

For the price of four rack rails (I'd want to four to support the back on heavy equipment) you could probably just buy a used rack on craigslist. I see a bunch for under $100 in my area.

Racks

Hey Guys,

Here is a couple pics of my racks. I pulled the door off for a bit better view, I actually go back and forth between the door on and off.

Just a bit of info.

The Small Rack on the wall contains all networking and security equipment, I hate how it interferes with AV so I keep them separate.

The Rack has dual Duct Cool Fan systems, 1 pulling air in the bottom and 1 sucking it out the top.

Full Access to cabling both below and above with Trap doors in the room to access both
routes.

The Big one is a Mid Atlantic BGR and the little on wall guy is a Mid Atlantic DWR.

The Racks are feeding a 7.4.4. Amos Theater and 12 Zones of Distributed Audio.
