Enclosed wall rack for amps

<< < (2/2)

+1 with Everything Eric said.

$200 can get you a decent network rack, but for power amps needing more depth rear device access, those are not a great choice.

You could try and build a hinge mechanism that adds more depth to those racks, but parts and labor will probably push the price right up to just buying the right piece for the job.

The rack in the Amazon link does not appear to wall mount.

For a somewhat legit wall mount hinged rack your budget will need to be increased.
The vented door from Lowell or Middle Atlantic will be about all of what your budget is.

Non hinged wall racks are a pain to wire and to do any service work in.

Mike's not kidding, the vented door, just the door, is about your budget.

Agreed, $200 isn't realistic for a normal, "real" rack. 

What about one of the vertical racks, where the amps hang from their rack ears?  Low profile as well.  Check which direction the amp fans blow.  You may even find a skeleton vertical rack like this for around your budget.

True, but it comes with locking wheels. Ours is a 21U and we have room to just pull it forward a foot and then rotate to access the rear. Itís held up well in its role but itís not braced for wall mounting. Good ventilation with lockable doors if that matters.
