    what is the lightest possible 2 space rack case?

    what about a 1 space rack case?

    I'll spare you the smart-ass reply (of which you will receive many) and say that it'd be hard to get a much lighter case than an SKB ATA, at least one that would serve the function of protection. The nylon fabric cases may be a little lighter.

    well, it may be obvious, but i know zilch about rack cases. i have never even seen one in person... well maybe at a concert. I am trying go as light as possible so if the rack case weighs 20lbs it defeats the purpose of buying a 11lb poweramp.

    do the nylon bags allow for breathability?ie is it like a bag where you have to remove the amp before you can play?

    It would be optimum to have a light case that i can easily just open up plug in, turn on and play.

    I just bought a Grundord Mighty Light 4 space rack. Should recieve it next week. Here is the ML lineup
    Spacing Height Width Depth Weight
    ML-02 2 Space 5 1/4" 20 3/4" 13 1/4" 8.35Ibs.
    ML-03 3 Space 7" 20 3/4" 13 1/4" 9.45Ibs.
    ML-04 4 Space 8 3/4" 20 3/4" 13 1/4" 10.75Ibs.
    ML-06 6 Space 12 1/4" 20 3/4" 13 1/4" 12.95Ibs.
    ML-08 8 Spaces 15 3/4" 20 3/4" 13 1/4" 16.35Ibs.
    ML-10 10 Spaces 19 1/4" 20 3/4" 13 1/4" 16.75Ibs.
    ML-12 12 Spaces 22 3/4" 20 3/4" 13 1/4" 18.60Ibs.

    Because my amp is so long, I had to buy the MLD, which adds about 5 inches and 4 lbs.

    Fritzproaudio.com sells the 2 space ML for around 65 bucks:

    Here is a table I was using for comparison:

    Rack Lbs Descr
    SKB RLX4 12 4 space roll
    SKB Roto 14.2 4 Space Roto
    Proel 18 4 space wood
    Odyssey 15 3 space (bag)
    Grundorf club 25 4 space wood
    Grundorf ER 20 4 space wood
    Grundorf ML 10.75 4 space wood
    Grundorf MLD 14 4 space wood
