We have had a couple people suggest a few different things.
One of the things suggested was to have all of the small distros in the racks have cams power in and through.

And yes. what are the most useful and user friendly setups you have for i/o and power and front or back and things?

Thanks

Hey Talley!

The Cam in works when you have a ton of amps in a big double wide rack.

Spectrum does like a whole side of the PA with one big double wide and a small 200A distro built in. I cannot find a picture, but I think it will be like 12 D&B D80 Amps and a distro.

Otherwise, having 3 or 4 amps and a 2RU L21-30 distro is pretty standard.

I prefer all I/O on the front, and pocket doors are a must.

I will text you a picture next time I am at Spectrum.

Here is one I built recently. Picture doesn't show the multi pin. And the two non display amps were swapped with display models shortly after this picture was taken.

I sometimes work with a small regional sound company, which runs an old school analog system based on Meyer MSL-3's and 650-P's, Gamble consoles, and Crest Pro series amps. We have a few digital consoles, but everything else is analog.

We do a mix of events, ranging from city park gigs with 2 pairs of MSL-3's, to festivals with a full rig. As such, the amp racks are set up as low density modules, which can be combined as needed.

Each rack is a custom box, grey carpeted, in our standard 24"x30" footprint, containing a 10u shock-mounted rack section, with a shallow cable trunk section above that for looms, AC jumpers, etc.
Covers are slip-in panels with butterfly latches, which we store in the top section when not in use. The older (main) racks are built with a standard trunk lid with a 2" rise, the newer monitor racks are built with a flat lid, with flip over hinges.

Each of the main racks are loaded with a pair of Meyer processors, a pair of Crest amps (7001 and 8001), and a 2u drawer for adapters.

I/O and power is on the rear.

For power, we use a L14-30P on the supply side, powering a single amp per leg, and also split out to a pair of L5-30R's to power subs/etc.

Inputs are XLR, outputs are EP4.
