    Default Falcon differential receivers..... what enclosures are you using.

    I plan on adding a few of these in 2018 to ease in the congestion and simplify my wiring. So.. I’d love to see examples as to how those of you that use it are mounting/enclosing them.

    I had some left over Keptel CG-2000 enclosures from when I use to have SS24s in my display. Fits a Meanwell LRS power supply and the diff reciever pretty well. I have to see if I can get one out so I can take some pictures to show.

    I am using a CG-1000 to hold a 350W PS, Differential Receiver, and Power Distribution Board.

    I need to get my controller in this weekend to add a picture.

    This will be my first year with Pixels and I'm planning to use a Bud Industries box, which is also what I'm using to hold my main control board.
    I'm looking at this one for the Receivers and will probably mount the power supply on the door which will leave the bottom of the box for the receiver and a distribution board if needed.

    Ditto on Brians idea. Used cg2000s and put power supply and board together.

    I go small with a TA200 holding the actual receiver and just run power from elsewhere to run it and any pixels. E.g. will run a power injection line from someplace else in the yard or even with the cat 5 cable.

    I use a piece of 1/4" plywood to adapt it, but am looking at printing adapter plates going forward instead.

    Lance's is way more fancy than mine!

    I was out of time and needed a quick solution with what was on hand.
    Do it right and do it like Lance.

    I haven't laid it out yet but I would like to put three receiver boards and three MW PSUs in one of the 13"x13"x7" ammo boxes. I used these last year and really liked them. But, need to take the time to see what size the diff rcvr boards are, to see how the "fit" would be.... I have a fairly large matrix I will be running this year and I don't really need the distance provided by the F48/diff rcvrs, but I like the "four output per rcvr" config for this year's setup.

    Were you able to fit a 350W PS into that box? I think the box is just 9x9x3. I have some MW 350W PSUs (LRS-350-12) and it seems to me they wouldn't fit. What model of PSU do you have?
