The Cabinet

This is a custom 2-piece cabinet that I designed.  The cabinet is about 5'-9", lower unit is 20" wide overall, and the upper unit is 24 1/2" wide overall.  The lower unit has a cutout for a "case mod" look that will have a Plexiglas window and cold cathode tube lighting.

The cabinet uses a car amp with dedicated power supply and a total of 6 speakers for sound.  Fully relay-controlled power system for 1-button startup of PC, monitor, power supplies, and amplifier.  External volume control was added below control panel.

The monitor is a Wells-Gardner D9100 19" svga that plugs directly into the video card.
