    Seems sad, but it is cheaper to buy an old 1U amplifier off e-bay and use the case than buy a empty case. Just saying. Smaller amp and you can even use the old transformer.

    True that.

    I've always had a hard time sourcing good looking empty chassis. Seems like it should be simple to find a 19" rack compatible, or 17" wide without the ears empty chassis with decent construction. But nope...

      Par Metal has a decent variety. Good enough for me.

        Sure, but the price is still way more than just gutting some old rackmount gizmo.

        I actually bought a dead HTR on Ebay and cut down the top so it then had a low(ish) height. Popped in a 4 channel Sure amp board and a PS. Pretty fast build and looks great.

          Pretty good quality. If you watch out for sales the prices aren’t too bad.
