Allen Heath QU16 Case
« on: December 02, 2013, 05:00:09 pm »

I need to protect my new mixer and in the past I had used the SKB pop-up. Because I am very careful with my equipment, this style of case worked well because 1) it gave me adequate protection, 2) It was light to carry and 3) It gave me access to everything at the back whilst remaining protected. However, the SKB case is only 5.5" deep and the new mixer is 7.5".
At one time I used my SKB case for my mixwiz without rotating the rear pod and although it was technically too deep for the case (7.5" again),  it simply meant that the ratchets did not rest in a horizontal posiition when released.
I have checked out everything I can online but I must be missing some options.
I figure there will be more to choose from as time goes by but I was wondering what anyone else is using????

Audiopile's MixWiz case should fit nicely:

do you know that to be the case?  The Qu-16 is pretty tall in the back.

Maybe call Mark at Audiopile and ask him? I have that case and it is well built and solid, plenty of room in the back.

Just noticed you had your measurement of 7.5" in your OP. I measured 7.75" from the inside floor of the case to the top of the rails at the back end of the rails, measuring along the surface of the patchbay part of the mixer, perpendicular to the rails. The patchbay part of the Mixwiz is set perpendicular to the (slanted) top of the mixer. I would still call Mark to make sure, but if the 7.5" you measured is along the patchbay section, you should be fine.

Based on the dimensions provided by A&H and Audiopile, I'd bet yes.  As George mentioned, it wouldn't hurt to call Mark to verify.

Thanks Guys. I appreciate the info. I'll call Mark tomorrow just to be sure but it looks like it might be the solution.
From the pictures and description, it does look good quality.
It'll be heavier than the SKB but not a bad trade-off considering the savings in weight going from my 12U rack /mixer case combo full of processors and my mixwiz to the QU16 in a case -nothing else needed. Yep - I'll take the latter.....

A good case is a good thing to protect a mixer.

Depending on your preferences, a Pelican style case may work too.  I have an LS9 in one of these and I really like the amount of protection, the wheels, and the weight of it.

It looks like that case would be a good fit for the Qu-16 as well.  The tradeoff is that you have to pull the console out of the case to use it.  The Qu-16 is a sexy piece of hardware though.  It's somewhat of a shame to hide it in a rack.  The Pelican cases can be ordered with pick-n-pluck foam so you can form-fit it for the mixer.

I'm presently carrying mine in an accordion soft case/shoulder bag.

I agree...no corners should be cut here.
