    Hey Everybody,

    I just got an SKB 4 Space Roto-Rack for my SVT4 Pro. I don't know how much of a problem it might be, but there is very little room between the sides of the case and the amp's cooling vents. Only about 1/4" of clearance. I am worried it might fry or something. Or is this perfectly normal?

    The amp is obviously designed to be racked and has a fan, I wouldn't sweat it, especially if it will be the only thing in the rack.
