    Hi

    Are either of these units shallow enough to fit in a shallow rack bag?

    I happen to own a shallow that I dont use and the other units will fit.

    thanks

  2. The Kern is not deep. Check the website for measurements. Those measurements may be in the Bass Player mag review which is on the Kern website. I don't have the URL at the moment.

    how shallow's your rack bag? 14"? if so, dont worry. if its 10" like the new SKB X-rack, might be a wee bit tight. my DB680 just barely doesnt fit. :(

    I have an 11" deep rack bag made by Pro-Tec. My DB659 fits w/room to spare. There is enough room in to leave it plugged in.

    I have a Kern IP-777. I have the older version with the external power supply. :rolleyes: It is about 11" deep to the end of the exposed tube sockets. This is deeper than many pre-amps. Fits in my 14" deep rack bag with no problem.
