Well, this is a interest topic....
I have been looking at the same issue and I am cheap. I work in the IT world
a School District and we were getting rid of some very old P3 towers. As I was
taking the guts out of the computer (we keep HD/ Memory/CD Rom players/ PS for
parts) I started looking at the case. It was a great full tower case made for
or by HP. Steel outer case and pot-metal innards. If you laid the case on its
side, it was a great space for an amp that I want to build. The side of the
case (now the lid) comes off with latch mechanism. I took out the guts of the
case including the metal innards and started working with it. It makes a
good case with a little metal work and I will have about $20.00 worth of
additional aluminum in it.
I played with the idea if going "outside the box" and building the amplifier in
a "tower configuration" but decided it would be to far out of the box. but, I
think it could be done and save desktop space for the amp. It would have
a little weird. Might still do it.
