Component Feet

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm slowly peicing together a HTPC. The case I'm using is a 4U industrial computer case (hey...its free, how could I refuse). The thing is, it's meant to be installed in a 19" rack, so it does not have any sort of isolation feet (rubber or anything). I know I could just get some rubber stickon feet and be done with it, but I'd like to use those round circular ones that you find on audio components: ie Yamaha components and the sort.

Does anyone know where to look for something like that? I've google searched, but I'm obviously not searching on the right term. Ebay sells these isolators/speaker spikes...way overkill for my app. I just want to make the case look a little better, not make it look odd.

Thanks in advance for any response.

Thanks for the links cavu, but none of those are what I'm looking for. I should have included a pic in my OP, as you know what they say: "Pictures are worth a 1000 words." So here is is:


I have a feeling that these things are exclusive to the product manufacturing sector, and in order for me to get these, I'm going to have to salvage some old equipment.

Here is a better shot of the feet I'd like to get:

You can buy these parts from the manufacturer, but the price is high. A foot for the Panasonic S97 DVD player is listed as RKAC0005 FOOT $7.90

Goodwill is taking in electronics again and you might find something suitable to canabalize--cheap.

I use SORBOTHANE HEMISPHERE MOUNTS from Edmund Optics:

Since you have a rackmount case, I'd likely mount it on a wall with a 4u bracket.

This one here simply mounts on your wall horizontially or vertially:

If you wanted to soup it up, you could get a larger 8u rack and have room for other stuff:

Thanks for all the replies, but for what I want, I think I'm in sync with trekguy, in that if I want similar feet to one of those manufacturing types (Panny, Yamaha, Onkyo, JVC ect.), I'm going to have to bastardize some older equipment.

Guess its time to scour what people are tossing in the garbage.

I'm about to upgrade from my Yamaha RX-V793. Let me know what you'll pay for the feet!!

Thanks cavu for the offer, but I think you could get more money for the whole unit as opposed to selling it off in parts

Now that is what I'm looking at. I've only glanced at the site, so now I wonder if they will sell the feet on their own? If they do, I wonder if it will be more than $30.

Oh...I should have looked at this one first. Bingo. Some of these look good...and the price looks pretty good to boot as well. Thanks for the site Rupert. Question...have you ever bought anything from performance-pcs.com? I wonder how they are?
