Jamie, what kind of power connectors are on those rack packs?  That looks like the things most of the hotels use around here in the wall.


They're CEE connectors.  very common in Europe.  the ones on those amps are single phase 32 amp.  They're a much better alternative to the Australian standard we have.

I've seen two new Clair installs recently not using Clair-branded amps, so I don't know where they're using them, but I'll take your word at it.  They have so many different amps, who knows anymore.  I'll email a few Clair friends and just ask.

Here Adam, this one is just for you. I pulled the normal Crown XS500 out of Amp Rack #4 and switched it for a Clair modified Carver PM2.0 Monoblock to run a Clair ML-18 for a drum fill in my monitor rig this weekend. Gotta keep it strictly Clair Pimp style Cool Laughing

Cool.  Just curious, how do you hook the crossover to the monoblock?  Wink

I just built 14 of these racks:

and 6 of these:

edit:  the smaller rack with the 4 amps is not quite complete.  I'm going to change out the 6u vented panel for a fan-based one, with a hi-lo-off fan switch.  We're in Canada winter so we're not too worried about it, but by summer time, they'll be blowing air big time!  Very Happy

The big racks with the 2 A/C inputs on the front is entirely sealed at the back, and have fans on the slam-latch lid.  To turn the fans hi-lo-off you open the slam latch and there's a switch inside.

If there was an Amp Rack Porn magazine, I believe these racks would end up being the centerfold  Twisted Evil


The clean design & versatility has me drooling.

Standard 19-pin socapex.  We reverse the gender on the output of the amp rack so it's virtually impossible to plug a loudspeaker into a lighting dimmer.

Brad:

What part of Canada are you in? Always nice to see a local face.

Are you concerned about the possibility of human (or metal) contact with the exposed socapex pins? - Those labs should get pretty high output voltages...

Might want to put a cover on that outlet. It would be a shocking experience making contact with those exposed pins.  Shocked

I'm in Toronto.  
Ran the Band World audio shop for 3 years, now I'm inventory manager at Metalworks.


As far as the male soca goes, you both have a very valid point (i came into the shop one day and one of my staff hooked up a crown vz5002 to some full range music and he held onto the screw terminals of the output of the amp, and told me that he could "Feel the music"... Shocked )

It hasn't been an issue yet, but I was indeed planning on chaining on a cap to the panel.  I know maybe half of everyone will actually replace the cap after use, but at least that safety will be there.
