Ah, no.

500 Series Pinout Data      

Pin   Description

1. CHASSIS
2. Plus 4 Output “+”
3. option
4. Plus 4 Output “-”
5. Audio Ground
6. 525 Stereo Link
7. option
8. Plus 4 “-” Input
9. option
10. Plus 4 “+” Input
11. Gain Adj 550b, 560b
12. +16 volts DC
13. Power Ground
14. -16 volts DC
15. Phantom +48 VDC

The “basic” API 500 Series pinout. “Option” implies some vintage and module-specific variations.

you could cobble in an adaptor, methinks.
those dbx cards are about 4"deeper than the 500 format cards

Find out the pinout for your aphex box's edge connector, buy a 30 Pin Card Edge Connector and a 51x Card Edge Proto PCB Adapter from Classic Audio Products of Illinois.  Then all you need to do is "connect the dots" between the api pinout that Mark gave you and the aphex pinout so that your ins, outs, power, and grounds all get to where they need to be.  Does your Aphex box have 48V?  If not, that might be something you'll want to consider adding.
