    New amp rack design. Critiques please.

    I am trying to get a solid amp rack drawn up for 2 amps, a DC 2.0k and a DC 175.4. So far, here is what I have:

    New amp rack design. Critiques please.-amp-rack.jpg

    The holes on the top board are for 120mm fans, and will be mounted underneath the board, under each amp blowing up. The slots on the side are for airflow, and will be covered with 3 60mm fan dust covers each. The slot in the middle is for cables. The "L" section, where it is lower, will be butted up against my sub box. The raised section will be 2.75" from my sub box, so I should have no surround clearance issues. I didn't put any holes in the top board on here for cables, because I don't know exactly where they will be, but all cables will be routed through there from underneath, directly to their respective terminations. The entire thing will be covered in black carpet, same as my sub box.

    Any suggestions or ideas you may have are appreciated.

    I like it. I'll be using Birch ply, so it looks pretty decent stained as well. Too much work though, I stained my current setup. My box will incorporate a little of stained wood. You got any pics of that in the vehicle?

    Ah, got it. For some reason I couldn't place that in a car, it looked like windows in a house.

    Oh yeah, it's going on this rack! Ridin out a big typhoon now, gonna wait to see what kind of damage it brings. Funds may need to be allocated elsewhere right now.

    I'll let you know by about midweek.
