    If you don't mind having it shipped from the USA, Carvin makes a very nice 2 space Duratuff covered rack for $49.99. BUT, it is only about 13" deep, if I remember correctly. Check their website www.carvin.com. It's the one that comes with their RL600 and RL1000 amps, but you can order it separately. It fits any of their 2 space amps, like the DCM 1000. If your components are deeper than 13" there would be some "rearward protrusion".

    The duratuff cabs only work with carvin products, they dont use a rack-rail system. I have a r600, and it fits the case perfectly, but it screws in from the top, its really weird, but pretty solid.

    You cvould always make your own rack case.

    Modern Case Co. has a rack bag with a removable carpet covered wood rack. Don't know about availability in the UK...

    Pretty much true, Bentem, it's not rack-rail, but it could be used for some components other than Carvin. Depends on what Chris is mounting. When purchased separately, the all-wood Carvin case comes with four predrilled holes in the front, with threaded metal bushing inserts, and four "rack" screws. If you wanted to mount two 1-space units, you'd have to drill four more holes. Just about any 19" x 3.5" component should fit (My Eden WT800 only fits if I remove it's rubber feet). Unfortunately, it's only about 10" deep, not 13" as I said before, so it might look uncool holding a deeper 2-space amp.

    Not the best option, perhaps, but might work for some applications. It IS a very nice looking case, esp. on top of carpeted cabs.

    I've got a 3 space that is made by Grundorf. You might check them out to see if they make a two space.
