Mounting a wireless in a rack...

    Hi guys, just wanted to know if can anyone help me out with this?

    I have a Shure PGX14 and wanted to mount it in a rack. I emailed Shure to see if they had any kits that would suit this model but the only thing they have is a basic flat shelve for it to screw onto in a rack.

    I wanted something that made it fit a lot better, with panels on either side of the unit.

    Any suggestions? Maybe there is a non Shure brand rack mount somewhere out there?

    I think i have the same exact wireless as yourself.

    I have mine on a rack mountable shelf because I have no idea where else to get something to make it look more sturdy.

    Anyways, Steinhauzer (spelled totally wrong) makes a wireless that looks like what you would want. You would have to get their model though.

    I guess I'll address the question, now that I've moved the thread........


    Are there screws on the side of the receiver unit to be able to accept the rack ears? Is it one of those "half rack" units? My shure wireless is a half rack unit and I was able to order the long rack ears for it. But that was a few years ago, I wonder if they don't make/sell the ears anymore. I just checked my stuff and I have any extra set of ears that came with my wireless. Post a pic of your wireless so I can see if they're the same type.

    no spot for any rack ears at all. Those Steinhausers do have that ability however.
    Here is a link to their wireless unit...
    Google tells me their company is SENNHEISER, man was I off
    http://www.sennheiserusa.com/newsite/productdetail.asp?transid=G2-11
    about $750 for it from the factory so you could get it much cheaper.


    HERE ARE THE MOUNTS:

    just under $50 for the ears and you have a wireless rack.

    Lots of money for this thing when a Shure and a tray do the job.

    Sorry, I was addressing Jarule. If he already has the Shure unit and can post pics of it, I can see if the rack ears I have will fit it.

    Hey.

    No the model I have does not have screws on the side. It a pretty inexspensive one, and the coating is plastic.

    It has holes underneath it to put it on a shelf, but yeah I wanted to make it look nice and neat in a rack with 'ears'.

    I don't think this can be done...

    It'd actually look nice on a shelf. Really.
