GK 400RB IV head - how can I rackmount it?

    Any suggestions? I can only seem to find 19" rack cases on the internet, and no mention of converting 19" to a 17.5" width. The GK 400RB IV head is 17.5" wide, but came with rackmount ears attached, so there must be some way of mounting it on a rack!

    The only 2 solutions I can think of are:

    Buying a rack tray and bolting the head onto it
    or
    Getting someone to make me some extended ears for the amp.

    Much appreciated if anyone can point me in the right direction about where to get a 17.5" rack... I have checked ebay, google, etc etc

    Two threads for this? Unfortunetly, I can't help you buddy, but this seems a little excessive.

    It fits in a standard 19" rack with the rack ears.

    You may have mounted the ears backwards. I've done that before.
