    Default CG1500 Enclosures

    Is anyone going to be doing a group buy on enclosures anytime soon?

    Good question.

    DIY LED Express is currently having a pre-sale on enclosures (read: sale), I know WLC just got a huge shipment in if you need them now.

    The pre-sale will end at the end of the month, then they will be ordered and shipped out soon after.


    I may be in for some 1500's. I KNOW I need some 2000's for the ren 24's for this year. I'm really thinking it might just be eaiser to buy a few packs then re-sell them when needed (if you can afford it). Lots of people at the meetings are always needing cases, and many don't know exactly what boxes they will need yet.

    I'm surprised there isn't any more interest. I may pick up a case of 2000s, and 1500s during the presale. Whatever I don't use might be for sale after that.

    I could end up needing a CG1500 for another E681. I have one kit I did not build yet. I have two years to figure out what I'm going to do with it tho ... Now that everything is torn down and stored, I am just starting to relax ... Everything was removed and stored on Sunday in 4 1/2 hours. I was having a hard time keeping up with everyone and getting dizzy ! I am doing some final hanging tonight .. I want to have easy access to run all the pixel gadgets (RGB tree and Coro Flakes) between now and the 2014 display ...
    Thanks,

    Default CG1500 Enclosures

    I need to go through my stuff from last year... To make room for our Halloween walk-thru, most everything got shoved into a corner somewhere. I may have a few...

    1500 is best if you have no idea what is going in it.

    I just purchased 4 ss24's, so I'm going to order a few cg-2000s. Anyone interested in some, pleaae let me know. That's the difference between getting a case, or a few boxes.

    I'll be in for 1 cg1500 though.

    I'd be interested in a few of the 1500's and maybe a couple 2000's.
