This case looked perfect for my Mobile DJ set up however some quality issue and design flaws made this less than desirable. My rig is pretty simple. 1 Hercules RMX Mixer (6U), Nady 2RL Rack Light (1U) and Power conditioner (1U) across the top with a 2U drawer in the bottom to hold Mics, cables, headphones ect and a SKB AV8 stand for the laptop. I use powered cabinets so an amp is not needed in this set up. Design Flaws: SKB uses non-standard (propriety) screws. These are very coarse thread screws that will never hold us as well as well as a finer thread screw(More threads per sq in equals less likely to strip out) which brings us to the second problem: Plastic molded female threads.. Course threads plus plastic NON-REPLACEABLE threads means once the holes strips out (And they will) the only thing getting screwed is you. The screws are also very short. If you want to use the SKB AV8 shelf bolted on top of (in my case)the power conditioner and rack light mounted in the back of the top, You only get about 1.5 threads into Plastic to hold it all together. Buying a longer screw isn't an option as they are proprietary screws. To say the least, these stripped out on my first outing with rig and almost cost me a $1,600 laptop when it went crashing to the ground. Quality - I had to use a sidegrider to trim away the rough cut inner lip around the inside of the top so that the power conditioner would even fit. There was about a 1/4 inch lip on the inside of the case that should not have been there and made it where a standard size 1U power conditioner would not fit. Also the carpeting on the SKB AV8 shelf looked horrible. It was poorly glued on and coming off soon as I opened the box.
The size of this unit was why I bought it. I hoped to put a power amp on the bottom and DJ mixer and iPod dock on top. Unfortunately, there is very little depth behind the top rack and I had to take out the power amp to be able to fit the mixer and iPod dock on top. I suppose it would work better for a traditional 2 piece DJ CD player + mixer type setup. It also uses non-standard rack screws which I wasn't expecting.
