    Just picked up an Aguilar DB-359. Wicked sounding amp.
    Wicked heavy too :p

    Any thoughts on a 2U 18" deep rack/head case? Was looking at Gator or the Road Ready RR2UAD, but slightly concerned about the lack of venting to let the heat out.
    Anything better (with vents maybe?) or is custom the only way to go?

    I have mine in an SKB Roto Deep 4 space case. Perfect fit, lots of ventilation, and huge handles that make it much easier to carry.

    Is the amp known to run hot?
    You could mount a 1 space fan unit on the rear rails.

    You definitely want to give tubes a little breathing room. Those run big bottles and they can get hot.
