Title: Cable Trunks
Post by: Mark Amber on October 15, 2018, 12:27:34 pm
Hello all,

I am trying to do a little research into cable trunks. A survey and poll of sorts

- Why Fiberglass vs. Riveted? It seems like there is a preference for fiberglassed trunks.
- I want to do 1/4 by 1/3 dimensions... tallness? what works for folks?

We do mostly ballroom and convention center work. Right now we pack in largeish 1/4 pack cases but they are too deep to be useful for smaller cable like XLR, lighting, data, powercon.

Thanks!

Everything we have that is feasible goes into a 22.5" x 30" trunk. Distros, all cabing, monitors, lights, workbox, etc. Makes packing a truck a snap (assuming 90"), and looks pro on the jobsite. We have a few empties for packing misc. one-off stuff (extra cpc, small mixers, breakout packs, etc)
