500 modules in DBX 900 rack
« on: May 09, 2011, 10:55:50 AM »
Hi there.
First post here. I´ve searched for info on the possibility of putting 500 modules in a DBX 900 rack but not gotten any wiser. Being a DIY beginner it´s all a lot to take in concerning different builds and projects, but I´m usually a fast learner and from what I gather, it´s possible to do so. The only issue, as I see it at least (remember, I´m a newbie), is the difference in card length, and of course the pin-out. (ok, ok, there is a slight V difference too...) It should be possible to make an extension and wire it accordingly, am I right. Or am I totally off-track?
I´m sure someone has good intel on this.
Kindly, Andy

Hi,


  I am intending to try this myself. i am going to make extenders. Check the pin-outs, they are NOT the same. I cannot see why this shouldnt work, but I have not checked the max current draw per module yet.



   good luck,

Hi Andy :)
Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the pinout difference but that shouldn´t be a problem - found pinout charts on DBX homepage.
Please keep me posted on how it´s working out for you - I believe you will be faster since I first have to order and build myself a 500 module  :)

I have one 903 module on the way to me.
My guess from pictures is the depth will be a problem.
Will tell back once my module arrives.

Fitting a 903 in a 500 rack will probably be impossible, but the other way around should work... Or???

DBX 900 rack doesn't provide the phantom power so, without mods, the standard 500 series mike preamps for condensers can't be used.
