Deluxe 4U Steel
This is a steel-covered version of the Deluxe 4U Aluminum. Everything is the same except the top cover, bottom cover and rear cover are all made of steel, painted black in an anti-scratch finish.
Steel and aluminium have different electrical and physical properties. If you aren't sure if aluminum or steel is right for you, you might start here - Aluminum Vs Steel Chassis.
I purchased two of these. They both look great. The build quality is exceptional. It was a little finicky to put the first chassis together, but the second one was pretty easy as I knew what I was doing.
Note that the back panel comes pre-cut for the DIYAS chassis kit.
This is a great a great enclosure/chassis. It is well designed and produced. I built Papa's F6 amp with this enclosure. And this enclosure made my project easy and fun. It looks great too! Initially, I set a low budget for enclosure. But I am glad that I changed my mind and purchased this. It was a game changer for me.
This is a great enclosure. Initially, I set a low budget for an enclosure. But I really am happy that I changed my mind. It is well designed and it looks fantastic. Assembling this enclosure was really easy. This enclosure cased Papa's F6 amp which is another great product. And it made my project much easier and therefore fun. In fact, it was a game changer for me. Well worth the price.
Great chassis, easy to work with. Maybe a little expensive but worth it for ease of building. Somewhat still a beginner but complete the F6 without issue and the chassis works great for it.
great case with easy to follow instructions. The feet are a little weak but that’s my only complaint
Great product,precisely made and looks very professional when completed.
Very good chassis, good price, it houses my m2x amp.
Favorite features: predrilled base plate, predrilled heatsinks, looks great (black version), saves 100€ on build cost
Nice chassis. Amazingly fast delivery. Assembly would be easier if you got some guidance beyond the exploded view. When you go to assemble the base plate with the power supply and loaded heat sinks it needs to be done in a certain sequence. And you have to jiggle panels to get all the screw holes to line up. Easy enough, but be advised. Maybe don't use the sheet metal screws (ugh!) to secure the top and bottom panels. There are holes drilled in the heat sink rails. I ran a No. 6 tap in, and used hex head black cap screws. The UMS drilled heat sinks made the project easy. I could never have drilled and tapped it so correctly. Get the handles ( I ordered them afterwards). The loaded box is somewhat heavy, and the heat sinks are a bit sharp. I will buy other boxes from these guys.
