Custom I/O

Does anyone know where to get parts to build i/o panels or where to get them made? I want to outfit new shockmount racks with a panel in the back for easy hookup with xlr, 1/4" and speakon connections. Any ideas?

You can get blank rack panels, connectors, etc from any decent supply house. Even Musicians Friend has em. My advice, get the panels that are C shaped as they're stiff enough to handle some cable strain and plugging/unplugging. Stay away from the older style (Switchcraft) connectors and try for Neutrik, not just for Speakon, but 1/4" and XLR as well, lots easier to install and better strain relief.

If you don't have a good supply house nearby and are going to have to ship anyway, contact Dan or Zipper at Applied Audio and mention me. http://www.theatresupply.com

Best Site, Great Catologue, (and local for me :))

Parts Express has a good selection of switchcraft and Neutrik connectors in addition to pre-punched panels. You can also get some nice deals on bulk wire to connect your new panels to your gear. Their site is a little hard to navigate, but I think its worh the effort. http://www.partsexpress.com
