As long as the vents are uncovered and the bottom tray is NOT restricted to airflow or an airspace, it will rid itself of unwanted heat.
That's what my case allows, unrestricted venting as the factory intends, and an airspace to radiate heat into. A nice clean way of getting rid of heat.

As far as I can see on the pictures above, the bottom of the unit radiates heat in an enclosed airspace (where the wood is visible). This air will heat up and therefore also the components mounted to the bottom metal will as well. So, as far as I can see on the pictures, this case provides not as good cooling as when the unit would be sitting on a table top.

I wouldn't put a fan anywhere near this console. It'll just make it dirty like a power amp heat sink.
I clean enough of those once a year. Even the filtered types get filthy.

There are other ways to keep heat to a minimum. Feed the board clean, stable AC, and the PSU won't turn all that
"not so pure" AC distortion into heat.
Anything the PSU sees that isn't a nice beautiful sine wave of 117 volts, it has to get rid of.
That is done by filtering that junk into heat. A lot of "junk" (spikes, generator distortion, square waves) equals a lot of excess heat.
Got to filter that AC to keep the PSU happy.

I think you exaggerate the dust issue. The dust collects at the bottom, not where the faders are...
I rather clean the fan once a year than having a dead board on a gig.

Please tell me why a switched mode power supply will heat more due to "junk" on the AC supply.

I built this myself using hardware from www.doityourselfroadcases.com.

The main idea was to integrate a mac mini with enough beef to not only run VSL and Capture, but also run waves multirack with the possibility of protools hd9. This mainly just meant dumping 8 gigs of ram into the sucker. I still would like to add a router so i can stop going ad-hawk.

The project is still underway as i need to mount the computer (probably on a shelf), and tidy up some cables, but thank god my investment is safe.



The first photo is my original cad drawing. as you can see I do not follow instructions well.. haha my apologies on the image quality they are iPhone photos.



I think it turned out ok for my first shot but I learned a lot.


Thank you for sharing this. I am really interested in a case similar to this for my 16.4.2. I also will be making my own with the same website. Did you make your initial drawing with CAD? How did you arrive at your template?
What monitor and stand did you use?
Do you have more pictures?
How did you know where to install the partition and how did you arrive at it's shape? How sis you attach it?

Okay, I have a lot of questions about this, but if I can build my own custom case, that's what I want. I'm tired of trying to have someone build one for $600-$900 like I want.

I don't know whether anyone is looking to buy a used case, but I'm selling mine here:

It's built by LM Engineering, solid, well-built case.

Closed sitting on 4 4" casters. Photo is Pre handles. I added 2 Recessed Handles on each side.



The monitor and doghouse separators are lined with velcro. this worked extremely well for securing the monitor during transit.



The whole thing is on an APC battery backup considering I'm using a desktop computer. So far no incidents but its good to feel safe.



Messy shop! BCF controller for multitrack parameters. (makes life very easy. less mouse work.)



Out in the field. Went to a trackball for detailed control.



multitrack users... rotate your display for slick looking virtual rack! This also opens up your field of view to see the stage which of course is a MAJOR DEAL.




I think it turned out ok for my first shot but I learned a lot.


Very cool! What type of mount are you using for the monitor?

Anybody use the EWI case for the 24.4.2? The price is right and I don't really need a doghouse. It looks like it leaves everything accessable and has room for airflow all the way around.

I used the search function and found a few of you using their case for the 16.4.2, but didn't see any remarks about the 24.4.2.

I just got a factory made case for our SL24... Gator cases with a doghouse and no computer arm.
this is an installation and we were going to get a huge double wide dual 16 space with mixer on top and lighting board next to it but after i drew it all up it was HUGE and I decided to go with a basic 16 space FOH rack and standard Mixer case on top. I bolted the mixer case to the Rack and drilled a large hole on the left and right sides of the rack. so when it is shut down we can close and lock the gear . On the case for the mixer I drilled and large hole and cut a mouse hole into the top so I could keep it all connected and have the lids all on and locked. Same for the lighting gear... 16 space 3 way case for the lighting board and a bunch of drawers below. I find this a lot easier to deal with over a huge monster case.

Open Labs Sound Slate Pro Custom Music production PC ( windows i7 x64, SP1) 16GB RAM, Intel (R) Core (TM) i7CPU 870 @2.93 Ghz, x64 bit /
Open Labs Nikko XXL Windows XP Based master workstation / Presonus Firstudio Tube / Presonus Studio Live 24.4.2 (2) / Studio Live 1602 (1) / StudioLive 16.4.2 (1) w/ Mac mini and ipad / Capture / Protools / Ableton / Reaper / OMS / Studio One artists & pro / Midas Venue live mixers (3) / Sound Craft 24x8x2 analog live mixer / AVID SC48 Digital console with digital snake/ Various Meyer Sound systems Ultra Series Speakers / Protools Control 24 controller/mixer with Mac tower running protools. Tannoy SRM12B Studio Monitors (old school and still sound great!) Meyer HD1 studio Monitors.
Yamaha C7 Grand Piano w/ professional MIDI (NOT a disklavier player piano but a real MIDI interface on a real C7!)

Does anyone know if the Gator case has any lock loops on the closures?

Thought I'd give a little update to this thread.

I went ahead and go the EWI case from Audiopile. http://www.audiopile.net/products/Cases/Mixer_Cases/MXC-P24/MXC-P24_cutsheet.shtml

A basic tray case didn't do the trick for me as it wouldn't allow access to all the inputs, outputs, and HP jack without removing the mixer. The EWI case gives you complete access.

I also wanted to make sure and get a case with plenty of ventilation and with the design of the EWI case, there is a half inch of space around the sides and one inch around the bottom of the mixer. Nice deal.

The case comes with genuine Presonus rack ears and all the hardware with it was first rate. Overall, I'm really pleased and would recommend this case if you need a bit more than a basic tray case and yet don't need things like a doghouse or an equipment rack as an integral part of the design. Oh, and did I mention the thing is only $225.00? I own a music store and I can tell you that the price Audiopile is selling that for is pretty close to wholesale for cases that often aren't nearly as nice or well thought out.
