So I want to put Modcan A modules in a standard 10u flight rack (one of those Audiopile jobbies) with my remaining Frac row underneath.parasitk wrote:I have several Blacet PSUs here that I was planning on using for my Modcan modules.

it would be cool if bruce sold bus boards and PSU's separately. then you could fit your modules in any custom case you could think of instead of rows of 7.
The Modcan subrack is stupidly expensive.
The Cynthia Sixpac is priced better, but is a stupid size if you want to stick it in a standard rack.
But seeing your pics, I really would love to mount a Modcan row above the Frac row I'm keeping. It's too bad I never see Modcan subracks for sale used.
Thing is, it kills me to pay almost $400 for a subrack. I have several Blacet PS500s here to power both the Modcan and Frac, so all I really need are rack rails and a power distro for the Modcan stuff.
Another annoying thing is that since the A Series modules are 9" tall, you need extra padding to get them to 6U height, making something like Vector rails not immediately doable.
Does anyone have any ideas for rail/mounting alternatives?
You guys are all clever and charming and handsome so I'm sure you can help me find a solution!
