Perfect rack for me, I have (top to bottem) a Monster Power 2500, 2 FirePods, and a Behringer Headphone amp. The back panel was the major shortcoming as most have already mentioned. Having the power conditioner at the top made all the outlets unusable. By removing the top portion of what lies under the back panel, I now have full access to all the outlets and it still closes perfectly. All in all a good product, but SKB could do with a little revision. Or you could just mod it yourself :-)

Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

This is a great little shallow rack unit. Convenitent for the shallow depth rack items such as Korg Rack tuner, etc. I agree though with the other reviews - if only SKB would have made this unit so the back panel was identical to the front I would have rated it 100% - this should be a fairly easy thing that SKB could do starting on their next production run. Let's hope that they read these reviews to better their product line.

Not as good as they used to be

By Alan Wells

from Arkansas

Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

Back latches are and back panel are cheaply made and hard to close. The old SKB cases used to have good metal latches all the way around. I still have my old one from 1998 and its holding tough, but the new I got those crappy little plastic red latches in the back are impossible to twist to latch and the they make it hard to get in and out of. Obviously some Sort of new cost cutting measure by eliminating 2 out of 4 quality cargo latches fro the product. A serious downgrade.
Back latches are and back panel are cheaply made and hard to close.
The quality of the plastic case is still good and rugged but the latch thing is unforgivable. Seems like the old hard plastic ones were lighter and easier to handle. the new ones seem heavier and more awkwardly deep.
I think all rack cases should not be as expensive as they are and definitely not this new one with crappy latches

Cheap Case

Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

Read what I wrote in value - overall I would not buy or recommend this case.
4 space rack case - light so it is easy to move - not intended for heavy use
Poor quality
The rear panel of this case is pathetic. Instead of using latches, there are two little plastic tabs that you rotate to keep the panel from falling off. There is no positive stop so you don't really know if it is in the right place or not.

I would rather pay extra to have metal latches so that I am assured the cover is going to stay on. I sent this back as soon as I got it and got a different case with front and rear covers that have metal latches. I have been using it for a year with no problems.

I won't be looking at SKB again. I tried them because I have had a few of their guitar cases that were good.

Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

So much shopping for a rack case, and always finding the ones that are too freakin' deep--I am relieved to find these! First of all, ignore the review two below this; why that guy didn't research it before he bought it is no fault of SKB's. The one below this is dead on about the back, though. The back should be identical to the front, cuz the boxing-in is a little too much. My power amp is 10 inches deep and can't go in the bottom simply because of the power cord sticking out an additional couple inches. But that's the ONLY inconvenience; guitarists with racks, here's the case that was finally made for us!

I like everything but the back

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

This is a top notch unit and I like the shallow depth but the back sucks! Why didn't they just make the back like the front to give us full access? Every time I've loaded this rack I have to spend a half hour juggling things around so I can get everything connected in the back. For example, if you have a rack mounted power distribution center (Furman, etc.), its only 6" deep but you have to mount it in the middle area because wall wart power supplies are so big. Also, its hard to see back there. If they just made it with a regular back it would be aces.

Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

Started w/ purchasing a Gator GR-2S to carry a Behringer PMP518M amp. Took one web site's word that the PMP was 2U. NOT. So I returned the Gator for the XRACK4. Darn if the PMP didn't stick out a bit too far for the lid of the XRACK4. But I was able w/ some challenges to mount the PMP "inside" (against the inner rack lines) and the unit just cleared. Either case was good but I think the PMP518M is just a bit odd on rack design. I feel the XRACK4 is perhaps a bit more robust than the Gator and I would recommend it. My only negative would be the "backdoor" just doesn't seem very strong and the catches will likely be busted but only time will tell. Would recommend to others ...and the price was 80% of the Gator box.

      Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

      I found the rack to be very compact and durable, and easy to open and close. I mounted two wireless microphones over a 2U rackmounted drawer and a power strip on top. The only thing to be careful of was finding the proper depth drawer. I almost ordered a regular 2U drawer until I realized the short case dimensions only offered a limited selection of 2U drawers, and took a little bit of research to find the right depth drawer.

      Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

      This case was almost perfect! It is the toughest, most durable case I own, the only problem is, some of my rack units, such as my power condition, and power amp, ARE NOT well accommodated. They fit nicely, until you try to hook the cords up in the back. My PODHD Pro fit great, but that's about it. Really worth getting if you know your dimensions and give yourself some leeway.

      Comments about SKB XRACK4 Roto-Molded 4U X-Rack Case:

      The case seems fairly sturdy. The front panel is well made but the back panel is pretty cheap. It is very small so portability is not a problem. The back opanel should be cut bigger to allow for greater user access.

      Don't get this if any of your stuff is bigger than 10 inches... none of my gear fits into it.
