ADDAC - Doepfer case expansion kit!

Post by Faustgeist » Mon Jul 09, 2018 12:39 pm

Pretty ingenious!

Removes the upper / lower Doepfer name plate and allows mounting of three 4hp modules sideways.

For those of use with Monster cases, perhaps some creating drilling will allow two expansion frames side-by-side for six new module placements.

Well done ADDAC. Now, how about a kit to shift around the Doepfer frames and add a 1U rail? :nana:

Hopefully this has not been already discussed ad nauseum,

that not.

But the last incarnation of this idea got rather mixed reviews: viewtopic.php?t=152526

That is not particularly easy to do since the middle rails attach behind the clasp that hold the covers on. The clasp are riveted so would have to be drilled out. Then the top and bottom rails are currently avoiding the metal trim that surrounds the edges of the opening and would have to move either up or down, resulting in the topmost and bottommost rails having to have their mounting screws go through both the metal trim and the corner metal brackets which are also riveted in place. The back rivets on these brackets align in one dimension to where the mounting screws are currently for the rails, but you would be lucky if they also aligned in the other dimension too.

Even if you were to pass those hurdles, I don't think it can be done, the overall inside height of the standard 6P cabinet is 12.125 and the standard for a 7U space is 12.219 inches so the 1U size would not be standard.

Rgr that. Pretty cool approach they took, I like it. (alas only Monster cases here)

Yeah 1u wouldn't be as easy but I wish it were possible. ADDAC should create a third 1U option which is based around 4-8hp modules placed horizontally!

Anyone using these? How do you like them? I wanna cram a few more utilities in and thinking of getting a pair.

Pics would be nice I've never seen them with modules installed!

I had just enough space to cram one of these into my DIY suitcase with 6U of rails. I think the screw holes for modules were quite tight initially but no biggie. Overall it's great to have that extra HP.
