American Audio has sized up the needs of mobile DJs and tailor-made three 19-inch rack mount cases with space enough for a complete audio setup. With the introduction of the affordable new ETLC 8x4, ETLC 9x4 and ETLC 9x6 road cases, the company now offers DJs a choice between three different-sized cases to securely hold all of their rack mountable gear—from mixers and CD players to amplifiers and accessories.
Lightweight and featuring easy-to-carry handles, the American Audio ETLC 8x4, ETLC 9x4 and ETLC 9x6 road cases make it easier for mobile DJs to haul around their setups. The cases are constructed of sturdy plywood, and they feature detachable nylon covers that help protect sensitive equipment and keep it organized and ready to go.
The numbers on each model refer to the amount rack spaces they provide. The ETLC 8x4, originally designed for American Audio’s Mobile 210 DJ audio system, features eight top rack spaces plus four more on the bottom. The ETLC 9x4 and ETLC 9x6, each with nine top rack spaces, have four and six bottom rack spaces respectively and have the capacity to hold any standard 19-inch rack mount gear.
“These three durable new road cases make it a cinch for DJs to haul their gear from gig to gig without having to break down and set up all the separate components of their audio systems,” said Tom Freret, national sales manager for American Audio. “And choosing between the three models is a snap, too. If you figure that each rack space is 1.75 inches, DJs can do some quick arithmetic and immediately determine which of the available case sizes they require.”
Each case in the series is designed to hold a complete DJ setup—a mixer plus two single CD players or one dual CD player. They’re not only great for a DJ’s main audio setup, but serve well to house an emergency backup system to keep in the van or car.
The durable nylon cover/lid that comes with each case features a polyethylene center for added protection. It was designed to easily detach from the case to offer DJs added convenience.
