The Deluxe Chassis is the ultimate DIY Amplifier playground.  We don't know of another chassis for sale in the world that makes life as easy for DIY Audio enthusiasts.  Packed with features so you can focus on having a good time building your amp instead of getting roadblocked by the hardest parts of custom machining.

Introducing the 5U "Big A** Chassis"... (That's Amp!)



  • 1 x aluminum faceplate 10mm thick, 450mm wide with rounded corners and anodized in silver
  • 9 blind M3 pre-tapped mounting holes suitable for mounting all kinds of things to the faceplate - diodes, PCBs, riser panels, potentiometers, etc
  • Mount single or dual PSU boards directly to the back of the front panel
  • Designed so risers can be bolted to the chassis using two axis to create stable interior platforms within the chassis and maximize all the interior space 
  • Use with risers and easily mount front panel components such as pots and dials to the risers with extension rods going through the front panel, saving the need for complicated or messy hacking in order to attach things to the front panel 
  • The 9th hole is perfectly centered in the chassis and approximately 1/3 of the way down from the top (or bottom - you can spin the front 180') and can be used either as a mounting hole or as LED pilot hole

Back Panel

  • 1 x aluminum back panel 3mm thick and CNC routed to our back panel specification, ready to accept your choice of PEM, RCAs and premium binding posts or drop our back panel parts kit (not included) straight in
  • It has Neutrik XLR compatible holes on the back to accept XLR, XLR/1/4" combo or RCA-in-XLR-format connector so you can easily connect XLR, 1/4" or RCA cables to your amplifier
  • Please see the 5U Back Panel Specification for more details


  • 2 x aluminum top/bottom covers, maximally vented with 6 rows of venting strips, to provide an ideal balance between airflow and stiffness


  • 1 x galvanized steel perforated inner baseplate 400mm deep and 1.5mm thick which is pre-drilled with a pattern of holes allowing for easy mounting as well as less flex
  • All holes in the base are in a DIY friendly 10mm x 10mm hole pattern.  This makes it easy to design the mounting for anything you might want to attach, as well as ensuring if you rotate it 90 degrees, it will also mount perfectly.
  • Holes are aligned so there is a column of holes directly in the center to make it easy to drill out a hole for perfectly centered transformer mounting
  • All diyAudio PCBs going forward will come with mounting holes spaced apart in multiples of 10mm to allow for easy mounting in any orientation
  • Riser panels can be combined with the 10mm x 10mm pattern to create unlimited horizontal and vertical mounting configurations

Riser Panel Compatible

  • We've created riser panels that can be bolted to the base, front panel or each other to create unlimited possibilities for the maximisation of the internal space within the chassis.  
  • Want to stick burning amp output boards, bias boards, gain stage, dual psus, dual transformers, soft start and speaker protector all in a 4U chassis? Walls and shelves now simply screw together in any configuration to dramatically increase your ability to optimize the internal space.
