RT2/50 & RM4 in Rack

Post by cmsaub » Fri May 10, 2019 1:28 pm

In placing the RT2/50 and RM4 in a rack, have you found a 4 space rack is sufficient? Or, with the heat given off from the RT2/50, does it necessitate an empty rack space between?

Building a rack.

Thank you!

For the RT 2/50 the heat mostly comes out the back, for there's where the tubes are placed (and freely accessible)
So there wouldn't be much issues with heat, placing another unit on top of it

Thank you! This is uncharted territory for me. And my tech. He was concerned about heat and creating a bigger rack to have empty space between the pre and power amps. I’d like to make the rack as efficient/small as possible.

This is helpful!

Thank you!
