    Put me down for a case please.

    I plan to terminate my cable directly inside the box without fancy terminals. Already have an updated heavy gauge cable with speakon terminals.
    One less link in the chain.
    Any downside I’m missing besides the bling factor?

    The box is essentially an RF shield (with bling). How you terminate is your choice but think of a boat with holes in it during a storm... Essentially you could install it in one of your speakers for that invisible effect but where is the "cool" in that?

    This is a bad idea.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Stradivari v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X1 preamplifier Signed by Poppa himself, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds



    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    While yes the box does offer shielding, I'd think to put one of these monster transformers inside a speaker would have disastrous effects on sound quality. they're right and wrong ways to put inductors on a crossover boards as it is, so putting one of these guys near a crossover for me would be a big NO GO ZONE.

    Not saying that anyone here would actually install it on the inside but out of curiosity, what difference would it make if it was on the inside or sitting on the floor just behind one of the speakers (which is where mine is currently)?

    Larry, any info on cost of anodizing vs powder coat vs silver sides(not sure if this is even a possibility but i remember seeing Jesse's case and it did look nice as well)?

    Sorry for the delayed response - just seeing this.

    Please exclude me from the case purchase list. I am just switching out an 800VA that is housed in one of Toolfan's cases, so won't need a new one at this time.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Edit: I haven't read this whole thread; so, Larry, if you've ordered materials based on my being included, I'll buy one.

    you're good Craig Larry has been pretty busy see below, I thought I'd do Larry a solid and go through the thread and save him some time.

    @Toolfan66 Know this isn't the absolutely proper thread for this question but I've got to ask if there is any chance of any "Larry Rings" becoming available in the near future along with the 'Dreadnought' cases?????? Been hoping for the next available order of these for awhile. Thanks
