    hi Guys

    I see an SQ pictured on your website in an SKB Rolling Rack Mighty Gig Rig and and this is what I have. It looks to me that the lid won’t sit down properly as the desk is sitting very high. Can you confirm if the desk fits the case

    Thanks

    I know it’s a bit later and you’ve probably got your answer, but the lid will not go on. It works great to mount in as long as you’re okay with an open top, but not for traveling.

    I saw an SKB rep post somewhere that they had dropdown ears in development to fit in the Gig Rig series. Cant find the thread now tho… waiting on those.

    Here are a few Pictures of the custom Rack Case I had built for my SQ5. I designed it with a few thoughts in mind. I wanted the whole system to roll in and be ready to go quickly. I also wanted the mixer to sit at a good height and not have anything between me and the front of the mixer. The Mixer is on a sliding shelf/tray that can extend forward. Next I wanted the case to be customizable for any job I may put it on, instead of a shockmount system I opted for two removable 3RU Space Racks. These can easily slide out and can be placed on stage, for example. I choose to put an AR2412 in one and Shure QLXD 2-4 Packs in the other. The Drawers hold my wireless router, and Microphones. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any questions or suggestions.

    Better late than never.

    I recently ordered an SQ5 and Mighty GigRig. Like others, I found that the Allen and Heath rack ears for the SQ5 left the mixer too high to close the lid on the GigRig. After contacting SKB, I was directed to a newer item they have, the 1SKB-RE-SQ5. This is a set of after-market rack ears for the SQ5 that allows us to mount an SQ5 in the Mighty GigRig and the R100. I have the brackets on order from Sweetwater along with the A/V shelf and will post again with pictures and a review as soon as I get the parts in. A nice note, with the new mounts, the AV shelf from SKB is supposed to work as well.

    Hi guys,
    I’m currently looking at buying the SQ5 and would like to rack mount it, ideally to have a UPS/Waves server etc mounted underneath.

    Could anyone give me an idea as to how tall the rear of the console sits above rack height using the standard ears an/or the SKB ones?
