    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?

    Might try Switchcraft for the components.

    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

    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
