    Yeah I did an 8U shock mount (foam plus wood) for several years for local gigging when I was tough and younger (i.e. stupid). I could just barely lift it in and out of a car by myself, and probably am very lucky it didn’t create serious lower back problems. Next rack rig will be smaller, and probably plastic.

    Yes, please all take care of your back! So precious, safety first. Beyond the weight itself, the way you lift hold & carry stuff is at least as important. You can get serious injury with just a few kg with the wrong set of circumstances.

    Btw the 5U max size I mentioned above was for a standard model (ie: non-shock mount). Shockmount would make the max acceptable size even smaller + most (especially foam based ones) have some constraints in the way you can safely carry them (position...).

    Years ago I carried the refrigerators "EFX & Power Amps Racks" now a more modest setup :)

    Uh...nothing modest about that setup. No refrigerators, but modest?

    what an AWFUL web site page, SE!!!! Super high res images taking forever to load....slideshow is far too fast
    not everyone has 100MB broadband speed...mine 1.5 mb at it's fastest...at least it is beautiful and tranquil here where I spend most of my time

    looks like an interesting "baffle"

    That’s a isolated shield from the reflection from the floor etc. works incredibly great where you don’t get artifacts along with the speakers!
