They're good, but waste rack space

Comments about Mackie Rackmount Bracket Set for 1202-VLZ Pro & VLZ3:

A set of rack ears is such a simple product, so it is hard to understand how anyone could screw it up. But Mackie found a way. To be fair, the ears themself are quite durable, well made, easy to install, and accurately machined. The problem is how they work together with the mixer. (Mine is a 1202-VLZ3.) The mixer has a silver-color handle-like feature on the front end, which one obviously would want to remove when installing in a rack. It was easy enough to remove 2 sets of screws that are visible from the outside, but then I discovered that there was a third set of screws that attach to the handle from the inside. In order to remove those screws, I would have to remove the circuit board, which also would require removing every knob and switch from the control surface. The knobs did not easily come off and I could not see a set screw or other fastener holding them on, so I judged it too risky to continue trying to remove the handle.

This causes the unit to occupy one more rack space than necessary. If I had been successful removing the handle, I would then have to drill new holes in the rack ears, as the mounting holes will then not line up with the rack holes in the new position. (Only about 2/3 of that wasted rack space is at the bottom.)

My assessment about the wasting of rack space does take into consideration that you need space for making connections on the "back" (top, when mounted in a vertical rack) panel of the mixer.

    Works perfect, helps the 1202 sit in a "big boy" rack although maybe looking a little dorky but like Mackie says, the rack ears they sell work better than your girlfriends purse and that's all that really matters. I highly recommend.

      Comments about Mackie Rackmount Bracket Set for 1202-VLZ Pro & VLZ3:

      I bought this for my Mackie 1202 VLZ pro. Rack ears mount to the side of the unit easily enough but it's obviously an after thought, for several reasons. The screws seem too small to be ruggedly secure and it only mounts to 2 of 3 on each side. Maybe good enough for the studio but I wouldn't take it on the road. Now comes the truely infuriating part... the rack holes don't line up. Now, I spent sixty clams on hardware supposedly designed and machines for this purpose and it was several millimeters off. Not just scraping the sides of the screw and creating a little rack rash but I literally couldn't get the screw into the hole. The manufacturer only had to line it up to a standard rack ear for a quality check before it left the factory. Obviously this isn't a design flaw, lots of folks are pleased as punch with theirs. Instead, this is a machining tolerance or QA issue and I suffered for it. Think twice or make your own from angle iron at the hardware store. This is not worth the money nor the time and frustration. MF or Mackie, feel free to contact me directly, I took pictures of this nonsense.
