In our capacity as a dbx service center and specialist in vintage dbx gear, we have had many inquiries over the years from people needing a dbx rack mount kit for their 160s and 161s. The original dbx kits have been unavailable for many years. Well, we finally had a batch of them fabricated, and they are now available for sale.These kits allow you to mount one dbx 160 or 161 in a standard 19 inch equipment rack. Included are two steel side pieces, two aluminum top and bottom covers, four long threaded rods and eight black hex nuts. The sides and covers are painted with black powder coat and the finished assembly looks almost exactly like the original dbx kit. Slide the top and bottom covers into your dbx units, then fit the threaded rods into place, centering them into position. Install the two end pieces and then fasten the hex nuts - thats it. The lower portion of the photo shows one of our rack kits installed on a pair of 160s but of course, this listing includes the rack kit only - not the actual units. The rack hit is 2 rack units high (3.5). Were sorry, but weve had to price these kits higher than other rack kits that we offer, due to production costs for the small run that we built, and a LOT of running around time that went into this project.
We also offer dbx dual rack mount kits for racking a single 160 or 161. Vintage dbx gear is one of our specialties and we carry most parts for the original 160 series. We have meters, transformers, RMS detectors, VCAs, XLR adaptor cable kits, and most other parts. We dont have knobs or the rectangular black button in stock, but were working on it! Of course, we also provide expert repair and restoration of these units, and usually have refurbd units for sale.
