I got tired of worrying about spilled drinks on my mixer, so I built a plexiglas cover

Looks like a great idea, you must have a rough gig.

The other guys have a good point.  I would also add a pitched roof to the plan...  maybe pitch it so that the drinks fall off to the sides though??   Confused

I had to make it fit in the case, or it would have had more slope

Ok, well leave that "as is", then make a pitched roof to set on top of that.  Just two plexiglass panels that are hinged together at the top.  The only tricky part would be figuring out which fasteners to use to attach it to the existing box you have built.  Anyhow, it could be designed to easily fold up and go into the case for storage.   Razz

I've always wanted to invent a collapsable rack cover to prevent drinks from being placed on my cases and speakers..  Criss-crossing legs that would expand out as necessary, and store in a relative small amount of space.

Somewhat like this with two rows (for lack of a better picture).

at the sound co. i worked at we fashioned plywood pyramids to put on top of our subs so that they wouldn't be drink magnets.  we found you didn't need much slope.  drunk people value their alcohol and won't put their drink on a surface that is slanted for fear their 5 dollar drink will spill.

worked like a champ.  in hindsight, a simple teepee shape that folded back flat on itself with a hinge would have been better for transport.  but trust me, put a slant on it and the drink issue will pretty much go away...

A local club used to have some JBL MI-631 monitors (picture here:http://www.jblpro.com/pub/obsolete/MI_Series.pdf ).
 
As well as not being great monitors, they suffered from the design flaw of having a horizontal flat area just above the horn.  This was a convenient place for patrons and musicians to place drinks, but they would sooner or later fall over (the drinks, not the patrons), dumping noxious liquids into the horn and cone driver.


After some premature failures of HF diaphragms, somebody came up with the idea of gluing a triangular piece of wood to the flat area.  The modified monitors were dubbed the "MI-631BP" for "beer protector".

I've seen a guy drape a clear plastic sheet over the mixer before. it seemed to work well.

Recently there was a bar fight where a beer was thrown and it exploded on a guys face who was 5 feet from our mixer. We had a bit of beer land on our board. Wish I had something over it like the OP.
