    I'm trying to figure out if Ampeg Portaflex heads are rack mountable and if so how many spaces. Also, does anyone have any advice on the Portaflex series heads? Any and all serious comments welcome.

    I could be wrong but after looking through the manual and also looking at the dimensions I would say that they are not rack mountable.

    I think you could fabricate an aluminum, or plywood shelf, and mount that in a rack.

    Yeah, best bet would be to buy a 1U shelf and stick them on there. Otherwise, you could fabricate wings to mount them I suppose.

    I like all the PF heads but my favorite is the PF800. Not that I need 800w, but the extra headroom gives it an extra little whomp.

    Selta, I did that with a similar class d head . Just velcroed (yes I made that up) it on to a rack shelf I had lying around way cheaper than the $60 solution that the manufacturer sells.

    I tried to envision a set of brackets that I could make to adapt my PF-500 to a rack, and the shelf is way easier. If you are a decent fabricator of metal, you could probably make brackets, but any way I tried to figure it, I would have had to drill holes in the chassis, and that is when I said the shelf is a better way to go.
